This book caught my attention on the first page and I literally could not put it down, well not quite, but you get the picture.

Little Bee is a young Nigerian woman who witnessed the horrors of what can happen when evil trumps in her African homeland. She manages to get on a boat to the UK and spends two years in a detention camp. The story is about the unlikely friendship which unfolds between her and an English woman. It can be horrific but is also so full of hope.

It's a novel, but the reality is that this is a common occurrance. Civil war, rape as a weapon of that war, emigration, detention centres, all part of everyday life in Africa.

Don't let the above dissuade you from reading this amazing book. It's great writing all around.
