Ali Abdelaal, Cranleigh Carnegie Club

The Bone Sparrow

In the Australian detention camp where he was born and still lives, Subhi, 10, a Rohingya boy, shares a crowded tent with his mother, older sister, and other refugees and dreams of a world full of love and hope. After his mother and sister fled the corruption of their homeland, Subhi has only ever known life behind the fences. But his world is far bigger due to his wide imagination, the magical Night Sea from his mother's stories brings him gifts that give him hope, the whales in his mind sings to him and the birds tell him stories.
