Little Bee was a really unique book - about a refugee teenager and an English mother. I knew that pretty much everyone had read it, and that it had great reviews so I picked it up. I had no idea what I was getting into.
The book is good. It's well-written and tells an important story. It is not however a great read for a new mother whose hormones have yet to settle into normal status yet. It was a brutal read and towards the end I was just determined to finish so I could move onto something that wouldn't freak me the hell out and decide to lock my baby up somewhere safe for all time.
So if you're feeling a bit fragile, maybe put this one off until you've shored yourself way up. 5/10.
