The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon

the-bone-sparrowTJ Burns — January 2017


Wow! That was a difficult read. But I’m so glad I pushed through.

The Bone Sparrow is amazing — tragic, heart-breaking, tear-jerking… yet hopeful, showing the power of friendship, family, love, story-telling, and remembering.

I definitely needed some time to process this book.

The Bone Sparrow is an amazing story — I just couldn’t take too much at once. I am definitely the target audience here. I know little about Burma or its ethnic groups, but I care deeply about the plight of refugees worldwide (especially children) and desire (need) to know more.

Everyone (13 and older) should read this book. We need to know what is going on and we need to do something about it. Refugees are not criminals and should never be treated as such or even temporarily locked up. The world may have forgotten about these refugees, but it is time to remember and set them free.
