The Bone Sparrow

The Bone Sparrow is a book about a boy called Subhi and a girl called Jimmie. Subhi lives in a refugee camp, and has done so all his life. Jimmie lives in a house near the refugee camp, and one day decides to "invite" herself into the camp by crawling under the fence. Subhi becomes Jimmie's friend and she sneaks out every night to see Subhi. However, things start to turn for the worst when Eli, Subhi's other friend, who is also a refugee, gets moved to another part of the camp...

Overall, this is a good book. It is better than some books, but its not as good as books like Railhead. You should read this if you are an older reader, but if you are not older then 11, then this is probably not a book for you.
