Six for Sunday: Books Set in Schools

s4sIt’s Sunday! And that means my favourite weekly blog post: Six for Sunday, created and hosted by one of my favourite humans, Steph from A Little But A Lot. This week  continues the September school theme with books set in schools. I read a lot of books with school settings, so here are some of my most recently enjoyed reads set in schools:

1. D.O.G.S by M.A. Bennett. The absolutely terrifying sequel to S.T.A.G.S set in a boarding school in Northumberland.

2. Jemima Small Versus the Universe by Tamsin Winter. This is a brilliant book about owning your own space, set in a modern day school.

3. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. Set in a high school the year after the main character calls the police out to a summer party.

4. School of Alyxa – Secrets and Shadows by R.L. Ferguson. This one is set in a school for children with special abilities with an intriguing mystery.

5. Ella on the Outside by Cath Howe. Ella is just starting at the primary school that this book is set it. The popular girl wants to be friends with her, but not everything is what it seems.

6. Heartstopper 2 by Alice Oseman. The second book in the Nick and Charlie story has a school setting. These two are the absolute cutest. 

What books set in schools have you read recently?

  1. If you loved the school bits of Jemima, I definitely think you’re going to love Being Miss Nobody! Ella on the Outside is on my TBR, I really want to get to it after liking Not My Fault. The last thing I remember having a big focus on a school setting was Tell Me How You Really Feel, but I could be forgetting something!

    1. I can’t believe you didn’t say Murder Most Unladylike, Amy!!

      I haven’t read any of these, but Ella on the Outside is pricing very popular at work. I think the most recent book I read set in a school, aside from MMU, is The Pigeon Has to go to School! Does that count?!
