Little Bee

Little Bee by Chris Cleave is a powerful and moving book. I won't tell you what the book is about, as the front flap reads: Once you have read it, you'll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.

I liked this book so much I read it in one sitting. (I read this book in December, so it doesn't count toward my goal of 100 books in 2010). I've since passed it on to three other readers and encouraged them to devour it.

After my colleague Carol Nganga read it, she walked in with the book and said: Wow. Following is her guest review in her own words. Captivating and engaging with a strange turn of events at the end. I felt guilty putting it down for a break.
