The Bone Sparrow

The Bone Sparrow has fantastic melo-dramatic scenes that build up the character called Subhi and all his friends. The author does a great job of showing how they feel about being trapped in a refugee camp with low quality of life while returning to their homes could mean being killed. They all talk about superstition and childish subjects until an excellent climax in which their worlds shatter and childhoods end.
