The Bone Sparrow
The Bone Sparrow follows a boy called Subhi who has lived in a refugee camp all his life. One day he meets a girl called Jimmie from the outside world. As their relationship grows Jimmie, who can't read, asks Subhi to read stories written by her deceased mother. Jimmie wears a sparrow necklace that is made out of bone and is supposed to bring luck and hope.
Although this book is the saddest book I have read so far I think it is possibly the best. I liked this book because the characters show a resilience to prevail through all their hardships.
