Book 17: Little Bee
I just finished this book last night, one of those breathtaking, heart-pounding books that leaves you unable to sleep after. Stunning. Heartbreaking. Hopeful. Brilliant.
I devoured this book in two nights, couldn't put it down. I love the way the writing feels- musical. And I love a book that sweeps me away with a story but also shows me a world that I need to know. The reality of life for refugees is beyond horrible. Beyond terror. Unimaginable. This book left me broken for displaced people and their untold stories, and shaken again with the reality of evil and suffering in the world. But the book is a fascinating, surprising read and leaves a taste of hope.
