Here is part of the book's description on Amazon:
In 2009, three Tibetan children stumbled upon a self-immolation protest while playing a game in the Jokhang Square...The monk’s sacrifice leaves a lasting impression on the three children and, for the first time in their lives, they find themselves diverging amongst growing tensions and escalating resistance in their own land of the snows.
"The Heart’s Bone" explores the immortal power of friendship and discovers just how far young people will go to protect their freedom, their heritage and each other.
