The Bone Sparrow

Bone Sparrow is a story about friendship and desperation. In the book a boy called Subhi is in an immigration detention centre and he meets an impatient girl called Jimmie who visits him from outside each night. Jimmie reads a story to him under torchlight. Jimmie wears a Bone Sparrow necklace which she believes is good luck. However, one day Subhi sees a Bone Sparrow on his bed, which to him is a sign of death and every one falls ill. Others in the detention centre self harm themselves in defence of the illness; did this defend them? Read the book to find out!
This book is meant to be a thirteen plus and I agree with this as some of the content is gory. I would rate this book a 2 star as it is not my type of book as I prefer more adventure and horror.
