THE BONE SPARROW by ZANA FRAILLON
Review by Jenny @ Great Escape Books
“This is the story of the power of friendship and the vital nature of storytelling. It is told from the perspective of 2 young children, Subhi, born in a detention centre , and Jimmie, a young girl who lives on the outside. An unlikely friendship blossoms between them and they both discover the importance of their own stories in uniting their futures.
It is a heartfelt and harrowing insight into life as a Rohingya refugee in an Australian detention centre, the refugee crisis, immigration policies and conditions in detention centres. I highly recommend this novel – and applaud Zana Fraillon for writing about refugees and bringing this story to young adult fiction, especially with the constant media and political debate the issues attract.”
