Jasper Jones is a credible recollection of the injustice, racism and social exclusion that exists in the Australian society. It also tackles growing up, first love, family unity, and a sense of belonging in a community.

By doing this, Silvey was accredited for convincing the readers, appealing to their emotions and manipulating their beliefs and values to accept or agree with his opinions on the issue covered in the novel.
Have you ever wondered why our justice system is so unfair? I am sure everyone would agree that someone who is a serial killer of infants and children deserves the death penalty even more so than someone who commits a lesser crime gets the death penalty as well. For example, a woman gets the death penalty for killing 7 men, but another woman does not get the death penalty for killing eleven plus infants and children. There is one woman behind my questioning. Throughout my research I decided to find a crime I never heard about before, which lead me to a woman named Genene Jones. Furthermore, I will discuss Jones’s life leading up to the events, the crimes she committed, as well as her life now.
