The Other Hand ~ Chris Cleave


ALSO KNOWN AS : Little Bee

Sad, funny, horrific

A special reading experience

This was released in the US as "Little Bee".

Little Bee is an illegal immigrant in England who has gone looking for the holidaying couple that she and her sister met on a beach in Africa.

It's odd but when you check the reviews on Amazon or Goodreads, there are people that give this 1 star! Don't understand it ... I loved this book!!!

It engages you emotionally through the characterisation and the plot. It is a poignant, heart-wrenching exposure of the storyline. The switching between Sarah's story and Little Bee's has you yearning to get back to the other storyline so as to know what is happening and, at the same time, dreading to know what was happening!
