Miss Edwards, Regent's Readers

The Bone Sparrow

After choosing The Bone Sparrow from a colleague's recommendation, it was the best decision!
This book is engaging, gripping and extremely emotional. I found myself on a rollercoaster from start to finish as I tried to ascertain the environment I was reading about from a view point I was unfamiliar with. Zana Fraillon quickly had me gripped by her charming characters in the form of Eli, Queeny, Harvey, Subhi and Jimmie. The endearing and evolving relationship between these individuals develop throughout the book and makes the reality of the ending all the more raw.
As my best friend (who I was holiday with as I read this book from cover to cover) will confirm, I was laughing and crying throughout this masterpiece. Even reluctant to read the final chapter as I didn't want it to end!
