The Bone Sparrow

I enjoyed this book because it shows what life can actually be like in an immigration detention centre. It opens up peoples eyes and shows how hard it can be. It was emotional because it talked about people dying. However, I was confused about what the sparrow had to do with the story. I liked the characters because they all had different personalities. My favourite character was Eli because he was always happy and looked at the positive side of things. I was very shocked when he died because it was unexpected. I never liked Beaver in the first place because of his cruel personality and it made me feel bad for Subhi when Eli died. However, I did not get to the end of this book but I would like to try and read it again and get to the end to see what happens.
