Ben.W, Enfield Grammar School

The Bone Sparrow

The setting is on a remote refugee camp in Australia. The main character, Subhi, is a young boy who has never been outside of the fence... until he meets a girl from the outside. They seem to get along straight away and are both interested in each other's story. The main characters include: Subhi, Queeny(Subhi's sister), Eli(Subhi's best friend), Jimmie(The girl outside), Harvey and Beaver. All of the above are friends apart from Beaver. He is a Jacket, the Jackets run the camp. I liked this book especially at the end as it enticed me to read every word. However the book did take a bit to get into the main events and I didn't think the book had much of a plot. It did state very important issues that actually occur in real life
