Little Bee

Book: Little Bee

Author: Chris Cleave

Reviewer: Anna Ball Hodge, President, Friends of the Library Board of Directors

Favorite book of the summer-Little Bee by Chris Cleave, a writer for The Guardian. A young girl from a Third World country and English woman from “my” world of abundance lives collide and other story lines develop. Little Bee’s reflections are spot-on. “A scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived.”  My book club’s selection for March, I can’t wait to discuss each page of this beautifully written tale/real life story that relates world events to my Raleigh life.
