Teen author Meg Rosoff meets Norwich school pupils

Teen fiction author Meg Rosoff visited Norwich High School for Girls this week to talk about her new book, There is No Dog.

The American-born author spoke to pupils in years 10 and 11, as well as children from The Hewett School and City Academy Norwich.

Her new novel asks the question 'what would the world look like if God were a teenage boy?' and re-imagines the world with a teenage boy at the helm.

Librarian at Norwich High School, Liz Wraith, said: 'The book is funny and poignant – another Meg Rosoff classic. We all very much enjoyed Meg's visit and her talk was inspirational.'

The afternoon started with a lunch for the author, joined by six girls – the winners of a school competition to write about what they would do if they were God for a day.
