Little Bee

The blurb on the jacket:

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.

Nevertheless, from page 6:

And then I was thinking, Why are you staring at that girl in the newspaper, mister, and not us girls here in the queue for the telephone? What if we all ran away? But then I remembered, they were letting us out. This was hard to understand after so much time. Two years, I lived in that .............

That's all!
You must read the book.


  1. Interesting! Will bookmark for future reference.

  2. Anyone who has Little Bee and Richard Foster on the same page must be the bomb!

    I just finished Little Bee last night and it is definitely the best book of 2008 (actually published last year in England under a different title).

    You will not regret reading this book. Right up there with Oscar Wao and The Reluctant Fundamentalist. . .

    Go buy this book. . .
