Reading Recommendations Slide 12: Music

Four fab contemporary YA reads with a strong thematic focus on music for this week – 3 about bands/musicians and being a fan, and one about being in a band.
This Song Is (Not) For You has an asexual character (who is nonetheless romantic and is represented really well – lovely to see asexuality not presented as a symptom of/linked to something else) – you may have particular students who may appreciate seeing that representation.
I pop these recommendation slides up while I take KS4 and 5 registers (if I had yr9 classes, I’d use them there too) and allow students to read the info and decide whether they want to find any of these books. It’s a key one of my attempts to widen their reading and help them find books they might enjoy as there are certainly plenty of those out there, and the curriculum doesn’t always make it easy for us to present students with a pleasurable reading experience.

Last week’s theme was fantasy. I make some links thematic, some topical, some more English-y. Please do let me know if you have ideas/suggestions/requests for future possible links.
