Mrs New, Pilton Shadowers

The Bone Sparrow

My second Carnegie read and this one didn't disappoint either - it's going to be a hard decision!!
A poignant story about the life of refugees who are imprisoned in a refugee camp. This story covers their daily struggles; the treatment of them by the guards; and the sad fact that some refugees know nothing other than these camps where humanity leaves much to the imagination. A story that really hits home, especially considering the current plight of refugees in our world today. With so much negativity regarding refugees in the media and general life nowadays, I really feel that this book will encourage our young people to see just how terrible life is for these desperate people and hopefully encourage more consideration and morality.
It's going to be interesting to see how this compares with Salt to the Sea.
