Amelia, Radnor House

The Bone Sparrow

This book is incredibly eye-opening and gave me an insight into the life of people living in Australian detention centers.
Subhi, a refugee, lives a horrific and down-trodden life with best friend, Eli. The camp is filled with Jackets, who make life hard for the refugees, especially Beaver. Subhi was the first baby to be born in this refugee center.
I really enjoyed this book because it is relevant to current affairs, and gave me more information about Burma and the reugee crisis there.
My favourite scene of the book was when the riot broke out. I was devastated when Eli died because throughout the book our bonds with Eli grew further through the story.
