Reading Aloud: Little Bee

Little Bee
Written by Chris Cleave

The back of this book reads:

We don’t want to tell you WHAT HAPPENS in this book.
It is a truly SPECIAL STORY and we don’t want to spoil it.
NEVERTHELESS, you need to know enough to buy it, 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, the kind of choice we hope you never have to face. Two years later, they meet again–the story starts there…
Once you have read it, you’ll want to tell your friends about it. When you do, please don’t tell them what happens. The magic is in how the story unfolds.

I will honor the wishes of the author and publisher to not share the plot line of Little Bee, but I will say that this book has left me speechless. There are not enough words to convey the beautiful hopes, strengths, and pitfalls that bond the characters in Little Bee together in a complicated world.

A highly recommended read.
