Anna, St Helen and St Katharine

The Bone Sparrow

It made me happy. It made me sad and then it made me cry, just a bit. It is the eye-opening story of Subi a young refugee from Burma who is born and detained in a camp in Australia with no one but his sister, Queeny; his Mother, his best friend, Eli and his Shakespeare Duck. Life is bleak and happiness is scarce but through all of the darkness comes a light. Her name is Jimmie and her bone sparrow. This unexpected friendship not only makes the world seem that bit better but it helps normal people understand the hardships millions of refugees face every day. I think it is good to be reminded not to take your way of life for granted.
