Little Bee was sitting on a shelf at my local bookseller.... it was an interesting book jacket because it didn't tell you anything about the book.
I didn't buy the book (poverty sucks, remember) but I did thinking I would look for it at the library.
Then I forgot it's name and moved through my summer reading (The Help by Kathryn Stockett was excellent). Then I ended up at a friends house and saw it sitting on her coffee table. She couldn't recommend it highly enough. She said to me, "it changed my life".
So I borrowed it.
I read it in two days.
I will not go as far as to say that it changed my life but I will say that it changed the way that I look at my life. And that is really something.
