The Bone Sparrow

'The Bone Sparrow' follows the life of Subhi, a young boy in an immigration detention centre. When he meets Jimmie, a girl from the other side of the fences, his whole life changes. Some of today's big issues are addressed in this novel and the theme of hope is shown throughout. The book had really great characters that you learn to love despite their flaws. Most books on similar subjects are all doom and gloom. However, this novel brought to light the fact that people adapt to their environment and can still have fun, even in the darkest of times. 9/10, would recommend!
