"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

"An author worth watching."―Kirkus Reviews

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

* "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)

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

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

* "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)

"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
