Miss Shingler, St John Fisher RC High School

Bone Talk

I enjoyed this book which plunged me into a world and an environment previously unknown to me. Young Samkad discovers that the true path to manhood is not always through the traditional rituals of the tribe and that there is a bigger more worrying world out there beyond the tropical forests he's come to love and know. A world where people called 'Americans'are at war. Supported by his best friend, Luki, a girl who proves herself every bit a match for his 'warrior skills' there is a feminist touch to this story too that I liked too. A parable of the loss of innocence but the gaining of experience and the enduring value of friendship.
