The Bone Sparrow

With hints of 'Boy in the Striped Pyjamas', The Bone Sparrow is a moving and exciting book. Telling the story of Subhi, a young boy who has only ever known life in a refugee camp off the coast of Australia. He lives in fear of the guards and curious about the world outside him. Both old beyond his years, and innocent in equal measure, Subhi is a convincing character who shows the reader life through his eyes. Jimmie is a girl who lives on the other side of the fence, and is as displaced as Subhi, but for different reasons. One day they meet and their worlds change.
'The Bone Sparrow' is beautifully written, will bring you to tears and also make you smile. It is a must read.
