The Bone Sparrow

The Bone Sparrow is a very touching story. It is filled with good humour but great sadness too. Subhi seems like a very imaginative and kind boy. He has an exotic character although he lives a sad, troubled and horrible life. Jimmie seems like a tomboy who is outgoing and playful. She also has had difficulties in her life, due to her mum dying. So, there is a bond between them as Subhi's dad is fighting and may not come back.
The end of the story breaks your heart. Jimmie nearly dies, Eli dies and Subhi finds out his father has died. Although Subhi's mum finally starts going back to her normal self. When realizing how bad Subhi's life is, it makes you feel so happy and glad about the life you live and the fact that this is the life that millions of people lived, really breaks your heart.
