The Bone Sparrow

The Bone Sparrow is quite an emotional read- that is if you get emotional easily! It depicts the reality of war, and the story is told through the eyes of a young boy named Sukh who lives with his family and a bunch of other families in a refugee 'help' center. Sukh had never seen his ba (father) before in his life, and he is always waiting for his father to come. Then he meets a girl form the 'outside', and his life begins to change. The plot is well structured, filled with plot twists and possible flashbacks. It completely grips you, and it is quite hard to put it down once you started to read it! The characters remain consistent, and it just illustrates the loss of innocence of the children living in refugee areas. The ending is quite sad, as something heartbreaking happens, which just proves to us to never judge a book by it's cover. This is especially striking right now, as there are people in this world who are living in this exact same conditions as the characters in the book. And they all believe that 'nobody cares about us'. I personally believe that this book will help make people become more aware of their surroundings, and it will help them to understand the victims better.
