Basically, our English teacher told us to get a book/anthology/play for wider reading. We've already covered Journey's End and Accrington Pals (both plays) so I wanna read a novel.
I was thinking of Birdsong but I want to know more suggestions.
By the way, we are doing Regeneration in my other Eng Lit class for coursework so no point doing that.
