The Bone Sparrow

This book conveyed the powerful message of covering up the truth about refugee camps. Subhi, the main character, meets an outsider who teaches him about the wonders of the outside world, enlightening him. The cruelty of the officers in the camp, or the "Jackets" as they are called, is true to the conditions of real refugee camps. Subhi's sister tries cunningly to expose the truth, but that would be impossible in a real refugee camp.
