The gimmick of this book is that the publisher won’t tell you what this book is about. They say it is a story of two women, a story that is funny, touching and shocking. I’ll try not to give too much away of the story, except that it is about a Nigerian refugee who comes to the United Kingdom, and a British woman who has met her before.
The story of Little Bee, the Nigerian girl is anything but funny. The whole story was in fact incredibly tragic, but powerful. I don’t know what else to say about this book. Read it. But now I do need something less serious to cheer me up. Four out of five stars
