The Bone Sparrow

The Bone Sparrow is a must-read book that is extremely relatable, heart-touching and awareness raising. The main storyline is when two main characters, Subhi and Jimmie, who lead very different lives in two separate contrasting worlds, meet by no ordinary coincidence. The main themes in this book are to do with truth, trust and hope. The story traces Subhi and Jimmie's friendship as they become more and more familiar with one another. Subhi especially is affected positively by their relationship, so much that he learns how to convey and form his own opinion on anything, even if it something that contrasts so much to his world, so much that no one would even consider it. The Bone Sparrow follows the main characters on their journey of how they are affected by each other, their trust and in what way they can discover the truth in themselves. Zana Fraillon has perfectly balanced the scale of terror and beauty and causes you to open your heart to these characters. This was an awe-inspiring book and I'll definitely be reading it again and again in the future.
