“Little Bee -- this novel's small but powerful narrator -- begins her story as a Nigerian refugee in England who is looking for a British couple whom she met during a horrific episode in Nigeria -- a moment that unleashes a chain of events that will make you smile, cry, think, and, ultimately, pray for the best in humanity to win.”
— Valerie Koehler, Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, TX
“This stunning and compassionate novel brings faraway places near and makes incredible experiences real. From London to Nigeria, you'll grip the book tightly in your hands and hold its characters close to your heart: a young girl, a tormented idealistic journalist, and a fearless mother whose pierce love is a wonder.”
— Mark David Bradshaw, Watermark Books, Wichita, KS
“This is one of the few books I've read that I couldn't put down. The story is brilliant and powerful. The two main characters are Little Bee, a Nigerian refugee, and Sarah, an British magazine editor whose life is thrown into turmoil by Little Bee's arrival. With some incredible ruminations on immigration, grief, and the human spirit, Chris Cleave weaves a story you will never forget.”
— Stephanie Walker, The Boulder Book Store, Boulder, CO
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.
"[Cleave] has a sharp cinematic eye, and humanizes disturbing issues around refugees and the situation in Africa." ---Publishers Weekly
