The Bone Sparrow

I read The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon and I loved it. At first it was a little bit difficult to get into but after I read a bit more I loved it and kept on reading. It is about a boy named Subhi who lives in a refugee detention camp. He meets a girl called Jimmie from beyond the fence and they become friends. This book was sad, happy, funny and interesting which made love the book even more.

My favourite character was Jimmie as she was brave and wasn't afraid to do anything. I loved all of the characters as they played a big part in the story even though some weren't as important as the others. My least favourite character was Beaver, one of the jackets that kept things in order in the detention camp. I didn't like him because he was mean and violent.

I would recommend this book to ages 11+ as it was very interesting and one of the best books I've ever read. The author has done a great job with this.
