The Bone Sparrow

I thought ‘The Bone Sparrow’ was a really good book because Subhi is very funny and believable. I like the way he talks to the rubber duck and reads with Jimmie because it shows you how an unlikely friendship forms. Jimmie and Subhi are likeable characters because they have both had bad things happen to them and decided to carry on. This book shows you that sometimes refugees are treated like criminals; I did not like this thought. I thought that it was a really intriguing book that I could not put down. I really liked the fact that there was a special necklace and I also liked Eli. I found the ending of the book quite moving and a bit upsetting.
I really connected with this book and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 10.
