Congratulations to Sofia Gianni in year 8 who recently published her first book, entitled Streddatope: The Exiled Shadow. Sofia is a keen writer and voracious reader and she has shared the progress of the book with various members of staff throughout its development. She is also a key member of Ms Jones’ writing club and a much-valued student librarian.
Streddatope: The Exiled Shadow is a fantasy book, which very much reflects Sofia's reading tastes. The story includes mythical creatures, a wonderfully realised magical world and a host of characters. It is told from the different perspectives of the characters and shows a fantastic grasp of narrative and descriptive language.
We are all very proud of Sofia's achievement and are looking forward to the next instalment of her wonderful story!
“It’s always such a pleasure to read Sofia’s beautiful creative writing in our English lessons, and to have seen Streddatope: The Exiled Shadow in its early stages. I’m very pleased that now everyone else can enjoy it too!”
Ms Griffiths (Sofia’s English teacher)
