The Bone Sparrow

'The Bone Sparrow', by Zana Fraillon, is one of the most heart-wrenching but gripping books you will ever read. It is a story about a boy called Subhi, who lives in a refugee camp in Australia. He lives in terrible conditions, which are unknown to the outside world. Then, he meets Jimmie, a girl from the other side of the fence, who changes everything...

My favourite thing about this book is the way that the author portrays the sad scenes. She writes them in a way that makes you really connect to the characters, and uses emotive language that can reduce you to tears.

I give this book 5/5 stars and would thoroughly recommend reading it!
