Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valour by Ally Carter - digital pack


Bursting with adventure, mayhem and friendship, this is the first in an action-packed new middle-grade series – from the bestselling author of Gallagher Girls, Ally Carter – and the perfect book for readers who love the mystery of Robin Stevens and the mayhem of A Series of Unfortunate Events

At the Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valour, nothing is what it seems, no one is who they say they are and nowhere is safe. And now a ragtag group of orphans, led by 11-year-old April, must unravel the riddle of a missing heir, a supposed phantom and a secret key, all without alerting the adults of Winterborne House that trouble is afoot. Can they use their individual talents to make sure this home for misfits isn’t lost to them forever?

Hachette Children’s Group are offering this digital pack to celebrate the publication of the book. Can you help them unlock the secrets?

Please note, we would love to see the packs being used within your library and to send photos of the group using #VengeanceandValour on social media and tagging HachetteKids,HachetteSchools and @readingagency.


Keeping your reading group active while social distancing

Are you wondering how your reading group can continue to meet, even while you’re social distancing? With many people at home with family, flatmates or on their own, we know that books are so important to provide comfort, solace and escapism. Staying socially connected, and keeping your regular reading group meetings in your diary, is going to be very important in keeping up morale and supporting everyone’s mental health as we adjust to a new way of living.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
