Sparrow reviewed by Kate

Sparrow, written by Scot Gardner, is the story of a lad who escapes from a detention centre due to a boating accident. He swims to shore and survives in the wild. Through this story of survival we learn about his past and how he ended up in the juvenile detention centre; through a difficult childhood where his parents were absent and then died, an abusive brother, living on the streets and ultimately ending up in the wrong place at the wrong time.
