Little Bee (Chris Cleave)


This was a compelling glimpse into the life and experiences of a refugee. The story is fiction, but many parts of it are real. The twist is the topic of suicide. One of the characters has committed suicide and is quite a key part of the story. It was interesting. Just like when I was recently reading a book about white supremacists and having a bizarre experience because of issues happening in real life with white supremacists, I also was touched by suicide as I was reading this story. It's a really weird experience when real life collides with what you're reading.

Goodreads says:

From the author of the international bestseller Incendiary comes a haunting novel about the tenuous friendship that blooms between two disparate strangers---one an illegal Nigerian refugee, the other a recent widow from suburban London.
