The Bone Sparrow

I'm sorry but I've had to give up, even though I was halfway through this book. I just couldn't take the awful sense of impending doom and the unbearable cruelty of the situation. I really need to know what happens to Subhi and Jimmie but with all those other shortlisted titles to get through I've decided to leave it til the pressure's off and come back to it. The writing IS beautiful, the characters are well-drawn and the story has made me find out more about the Rohingya, but it is unbearably harrowing and I really wasn't enjoying it. Does this make me a complete lightweight?
I'm afraid I still haven't found my favourite Carnegie 2017 title yet.
