One of our Super Readable Books of the Year 2016 | Interest Age Teen Reading Age 8

Four teenagers meet to carry out the dying wishes of another close friend in this moving short novel, discovering truths about themselves and each other in the process. Dean, Zara, Ben and narrator Alix are very different people but the notes and photos contained in the time capsule they hid as 13 year olds and are digging up as 18 year olds depict the kind of friendship formed from difference, the kind, as Alix gratefully realises, that allows you to be exactly who you are. A YA (young adult) novel in the truest sense, this isn’t about nostalgia or looking back but the opposite; yet it still considers how no-one is ever as close or important as those friends made between child and adult-hood. Frank, often funny, it’s completely in tune with its readership. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Unboxed by Non Pratt

Four friends meet up at their old school to open the memory box they stowed there years ago - with five letters inside for four of them, because their friend Millie has died. When they open the box they find a new letter from Millie and discover that she has left them special instructions: permission to open her letter only if they all read aloud the letters they wrote to their older selves, revealing their deepest secrets.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 13+
