The Bone Sparrow

This book appealed to me even before I opened it. The front cover looked so interesting and intriguing. And I was right to judge, as I eagerly devoured it over the course of a few days.
The story of Subhi and his friends and family vividly paints a picture of how living conditions are in refugee detention centres, and shines a light on how people suffer there. The fact that Subhi was raised without exposure to the outside world makes me angry and determined to make a difference. I'm eternally grateful to Zana Fraillon for alerting me to the plight of Subhi and the poor unfortunates like him.
The storyline has been written in a way which is filled with emotion. The prose is full of rich description too. You'll laugh, cry and lose yourself in the tale.
