The mother of a friend of mine recommended Chris Cleave's Little Bee to me a few weeks ago. Yesterday I had a moment to start the book. A moment turned into a few hours. I'm so glad that I read this book.
What's it about?
This is from the fly leaf...
"We don't want to tell you too much about this book. It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know something so we will just say this: This is the story of two women. Their lives collide one fateful day, and one of them has to make a terrible choice. Two yeas later, they meet again. The story starts there. Once you have read it you'll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens. The magic is in how it unfolds."
