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.

Coiled - with purpose

Wires Crossed
by Raymond A. Foss

Wires crossed
circuits down
no connection
anywhere around
In the dark unaware
needing help
catch the air
Wires crossed
circuits down
no connection
in the town
Wanting words
answers to our calls
on hold for hours
waiting in the halls
Wires crossed
circuits down
no relief
at all
