Mrs Bond, St Peter's School

The Bone Sparrow

I did enjoy this book, although the topic in the story is upsetting. I thought it was a very similar read to The Boy in Striped Pyjamas, which I loved. Bone Sparrow is a very moving story telling us of what awful things happen inside refugee camps. Luckily the main character Subhi makes friends with Jimmie a girl from the outside which helps him with his dreadful life inside, they form a lovely friendship and read stories together which helps Subhi escape his life inside the camp for a little while. The book hi-lights what dreadful places these camps are and certainly makes you stop and think.
