The Bone Sparrow - Zana Fraillon.
I absolutely loved The Bone Sparrow, by Zana Fraillon because I found it intriguing and interesting, and absolutely impossible to put down. It is about a refugee called Subhi, who suffers a great amount at his time lodging in the harsh camp, which is separated off from the rest of the world, and is portrayed to everyone else as a much more luxorious place than it actually is.

The Smell of Other People's Houses - Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock.
To be truthful, I didn't really enjoy this book entirely much because I couldn't really get into it. I didn't finish it because I swapped it for The Bone Sparrow, which Ella-Jane read as her first book. The reason I wasn't overly fond of my original book was because it was from the perspective from lots of different characters which I don't enjoy reading as much. This is just my opinion though, and I am sure that other people would find it very interesting, as even though I didn't make a lot of progress with it, I still wanted to know what happened to one of the characters. The only trouble I had was that I couldn't then read through lots of other people's chapters before getting back to the other one! By Mabel Wynne.

"Salt to the Sea" review by Ella-Jane Tavener.
Salt to the Sea- "4 young people, 4 dark secrets". A book set in World War II and it is based on a true story. You feel that get to know the characters, for you can guess how they will react to certain things before they do so. It is an amazingly good book; I would recommend it to anyone and everyone that loves history, is 12 or over and loves reading! :)
