The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon

the-bone-sparrowSubhi is born in an Australian detention centre. This is the only life he knows, together with the stories his mother tells him of their life before they fled. He escapes in his imagination to other places, but it is the very real girl who sneaks into the centre who changes his world.

This raw look at life for refugees in Australia is recommended for young adults, but will open the eyes and minds of adults alike.
