When I was deciding if I should read this book, which everyone told me I should read, I tried to find out what it was about. This was all I could find:

Overview

WE DON’T WANT TO TELL YOU TOO MUCH ABOUT THIS BOOK.
It is a truly special story and we don’t want to spoil it.

Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this:

It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific.

The story starts there, but the book doesn’t.

And it’s what happens afterward that is most important.

Once you have read it, you’ll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don’t tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.

Now that I’ve read it, I don’t know how to write a review, since I can’t tell you about the book. First I didn’t think it was truly special or extremely funny. It was funny in parts, the rest is true. Except for me wanting to tell everyone about it. It was an interesting story, told from the view of Little Bee and Sarah, who have a horrific encounter on an African beach. It is one in a series of horrific events for Little Bee, apparently the first horror Sarah has experienced and it changes both their lives. Little Bee’s life is a series of unfortunate accidents, which don’t stop after she leaves Africa. The ending is inevitable.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
