The Bone Sparrow

The refugee crisis is a massive issue and this book tells of how, even in the 21st Century we still allow atrocities to happen. Subhi is the stoic hero who was born in an Australian permanent detention centre.The story,interwoven with folk like tales also describes the horrific conditions of the camp in detail. How Subhi retains his optimism and innocence throughout even though he realises that he is "not wanted in this place or in Burma or in any other place," is heartbreaking.
