The Bone Sparrow

A show of human nature at its best and its worst, this book shows how a single group of people can be hunted down for something they can't help, being born in the wrong place. The bone sparrow follows the everyday life of a child born in an immigration detention center and how he sees the world inside and outside the barbed wire fences of this hell. The detention center staff treat the inhabitants as cattle to be herded and guarded until the day they die, unfortunately the law does nothing about this and it descends into a cycle of madness that none can stop except those who won't help for fear of the immigrants having the same rights as them.
