Description
Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal (UK) Shortlisted for the Costa Prize (UK) Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week The Guardian Book of the Month The Times Books of the Year "Hotly Anticipated Historical Fiction for Young Adults" Amazon.co.uk It is 1899. Ten year old Samkad thinks he knows everything about the world. He knows that home is in the mountains. He knows who his friends and his enemies are. And he knows that he will grow up to become a warrior like his dad, with his own shield, spear and axe. His best friend is Little Luki and she too wants to become a warrior - though there's little chance of that because she is just a girl. Then strangers arrive: a boy with many languages in his throat ... and weird-looking men called Americans who bring war and death. Set during the U.S. invasion of the Philippines. Endorsed by Amnesty International: "Amnesty International endorses Bone Talk because it upholds many human rights, including our rights to life, to equality, to have a religion, to enjoy our own culture. It also shows us what can happen when these are taken away from us."

display_description"More than a hundred years ago, a boy named Samkad thinks he knows everything about the world. He knows the mountains he lives in. He knows his people. He knows his blood enemy, the Mangili. And he wants to become a man, to be given his own shield, spear and axe to fight with. His best friend, Luki, wants all the same things - but she is a girl, and no girl has ever become a warrior. But everything changes when a new boy arrives in the village. He calls himself Samkad's brother, yet he knows nothing of the ways of the mountain. And he brings news of a people called 'Americans', who are bringing war and destruction right to his home..." --adapted from dust jacket.
