The Bone Sparrow

The Bone Sparrow was a heartbreaking but magical book. It filled me with joy to see the unity of two children who live right next to each other but have two very different lives. Subhi has never seen outside of the treacherous gates, but he uses his glorious imagination to think of all the great things he'll see when his Ba comes. Jimmie, a girl from the outside, doesn't know that inside the tall, towering fences lies a small world of danger and sadness. The way all hope is lost makes the story and the aspect of it so much better. I think the style of the writing was just sensational and my 'tingle' senses were alert! I really, really enjoyed this book and I would highly recommend reading it!
