    Hi!

    I have an interview for Sheffield University on 2nd Feb and I have been asked to prepare a short presentation on a piece of literature appropriate for Y9 pupils.

    I was just wondering whether anyone who has been through a similar process has any idea whether they are looking for you to think outside the box and present something currently popular with 13-14 year olds, or whether they'd prefer you to present an old reliable classic, i.e. the kind of thing taught in schools year after year.

    Any help much appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Buddy or other books from the Puffin Teenage fiction series would make a good choice.
