Product description

Review

* "Fraillon crafts a harrowing vision of life in the detention center, yet Subhi finds solace in sensitively portrayed friendships with a rebellious older boy, a compassionate guard, and an intrepid girl named Jimmie While addressing themes of loss, desperation, and injustice in an all-too-relevant setting, Fraillon's resonant novel underscores the healing power of story."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

* "The pivoting story line, with chapters alternating among Subhi, Jimmie, and sparkling slivers of family lore, allows Fraillon to explore the many faces of otherness, bravery, and solidarity. But Subhi's narrative, whether he's squabbling with a rubber duck or searching the stars, remains the standout of the three: wide-eyed, heartfelt, and infectiously imaginative... This tale is breathtaking and indispensable. As Subhi might say, 'there is a fierce' inside of it."--Booklist (starred review)

"Fraillon's story is stark and urgent; her afterword tells more about the "all-too-true reality" that inspired the book."--The Horn Book

"Zana Fraillon's powerful and poetic tale of friendship in the face of injustice will fly away with your heart."--Katherine Marsh, Edgar Award-winning author of The Night Tourist

"Outstanding... This is an important, heartbreaking book with frequent, unexpected humor that everyone...should read."--The Guardian

"An author worth watching."--Kirkus Reviews

"Thought-provoking and affecting... Hand to readers who appreciated Linda Sue Park's A Long Walk to Water."--School Library Journal

"A special book."--Morris Gleitzman, author of Once

"The Bone Sparrow is a book you'll feel in your chest long after you finish. It's about stories that ache to be told, and the transformational power of sharing them. Though Subhi's journey is confined by fences, he finds magic and great injustice, tragedy and courage-and ultimately, wings."--Kirsten Hubbard, author of Watch the Sky and Race the Night

About the Author

Zana Fraillon was born in Melbourne, Australia, but spent her early childhood in San Francisco. Zana has written two picture books for young children, a series for middle readers, and a fictitious book for older readers based on research and recounts of survivors of the Forgotten Generation. She now lives in Melbourne, with her three sons, husband and two dogs. When Zana isn't reading or writing, she likes to explore the museums and hidden passageways scattered across Melbourne. They provide the same excitement as that moment before opening a new book preparing to step into the unknown where a whole world of possibilities awaits.
