In a few moments, they are faced with a choice: sacrifice a part of themselves to save the lives of two young Nigerian women, or leave them in the hands of the cruel and save themselves. The way that Cleave crafted his story feels superficial to me. He sees baddies everywhere and hides in the garden pretending he. Whether people make the transition from talking to militating for change is up to them. I am an American with compassion, so the subject matter tugs at my heart strings.
Then the girl on the phone turned to the third girl in the queue and she said to her, Do yu know the name of dis place where we is at? I wonder if some of what I thought was ridiculous and unrealistic was supposed to be humorous? We must see all scars as beauty.

What follows is the subject of the story, told sometimes by Little Bee and sometimes by Sarah O. The story follows Little Bee from her time in Nigeria to her difficult transition to England; as well as a British couple, whose lives become deeply entwined with Little Bee. It is rare that a book moves you and changes the way you think and view life- that is what Little Bee has done for me. But instead of tugging at my heartstrings, the book makes a relentless grab, the threads unraveling until any feeling I was holding for the characters was gone and I was left feeling threadbare.

You kept having the characters make a choice to help or do nothing because of the cost, and it strikes me how many of our policies in this area are that choice over and over again. I know that this will be a great movie. It touched me, it opened up eyes, it made me remember, and it gave me hope.
I just finished your book. If Cleave had stayed focused on Little Bee and had written the entire book in the same vein as the first few chapters narrated in her voice, this could have been a completely brilliant novel.
