At the Guardian he named a top ten list of "books that are set in libraries or have set his library alight," including:
There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom by Louis SacharRead about another book on the list.
Louis Sachar is a comic genius. He is the reason so many young people in our school read. Not only have they been enthralled by Holes but they also have access to a whole range of other fantastic books by Sachar and, for me, Boy in the Girl's Bathroom is one of the best with its mixture of humour and heartfelt moments. Bradley has no friends, but that's how he prefers it - that is until a new counsellor starts at the school. Bradley begins to realise that there are different ways to live your life if only you have a bit of self-belief and an amazing amount of courage – something a lot of young people need to remember!
There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom is one of James Dawson's top 10 books to get you through high school.
