The Secret Life of Bees
by Sue Monk Kidd
The Secret Life of Bees was by far the best book I have read this summer. The story line was everything I could have imagined. It kept me engaged and I could not put the book down. It all starts whit a girl named Lily who lives on a peach farm with her dad, who she calls T. Ray. T. Ray is always mean to her and makes her kneel on grits when she disobeys. She runs away and breaks her maid, Rosaleen, out of Jail. She escapes to Tiburon, South Carolina where she thinks her mother visited before she died. She stayes with African American women, developes friendships, and learns secrets about her mother that she wishes she never knew. This book is gripping and emotional. I highly recomend you reading this book.
