British couple Andrew and Sarah O'Rourke, vacationing on a Nigerian beach in a last-ditch effort to save their faltering marriage, come across Little Bee and her sister, Nigerian refugees fleeing from machete-wielding soldiers intent on clearing the beach. The horrific confrontation that follows changes the lives of everyone involved in unimaginable ways.

Two years later, Little Bee appears in London on the day of Andrew's funeral and reconnects with Sarah. Sarah is struggling to come to terms with her husband's recent suicide and the stubborn behavior of her four-year-old son, who is convinced that he really is Batman. The tenuous friendship between Sarah and Little Bee that grows, is challenged, and ultimately endures is the heart of this emotional, tense, and often hilarious novel.

Considered by some to be the next Kite Runner, Little Bee is an achingly human story set against the inhuman realities of war-torn Africa. Wrenching tests of friendship and terrible moral dilemmas fuel this irresistible novel. Download and start listening now!

    " I so rarely read adult books anymore and every time I do, I remind myself that I often prefer MG/YA. Much to this novel I loved - Little Bee herself being the biggest thing. But . . . oh, some seriously sad and numb aspects to this story. "

    " I don't saying you "like" this book is the right description. It is compelling. It caught me a little off guard. I strongly recommend it. I'm reading it again. "

    " This book was not what I expected. It is just not the book for me. It didn't keep me interested and I only finished reading it because I excepted something more. Sorry for the bad review :( "

    " Excellent book. In line with other reviews of this book - it's an excellent read of an excellent story. No details given as anything said would spoil your enjoyment of the development of the relationships between the characters. "
