Our first ever secondary school to take part in Adopt an Author is Cardinal Newman Secondary School- and they are adopting Patrice Lawrence along with her book “Orange Boy”.
9EF got things started with this lovely letter, with lots of different questions for Patrice about her characters, and the story so far.
Here’s Patrice’s answers- written on World Book Day. They’re full of detail, we hope you enjoy reading them as much as we did!
We’re really interested in how this conversation has already started getting to the root of how Patrice started writing her book….and about some of her research behind it. ‘Hypothalamus’- what a great new word! I wonder if we can all try and casually use it in a sentence this week…
Can’t wait to see how your letters unfold!
