I really enjoyed the two different voices in this book, that of Little Bee and Sarah. Their chapters were placed in such heartbreaking contrast to each other I sometimes found the novel hard to read. Of the two, Little Bee's character certainly gripped me more; she had a beautiful, thoughtful, sad voice, and I found it fascinating to view British culture through her eyes and see how she learned to navigate it to try to survive.

Blurb from Goodreads:
"Sarah Summers is enjoying a holiday on a Nigerian beach when a young girl named Little Bee crashes irrevocably into her life. All it takes is a brief and horrifying moment of crisis — a terrifying scene that no reader will forget. Afterwards, Sarah and Little Bee might expect never to see each other again. But Little Bee finds Sarah’s husband’s wallet in the sand, and smuggles herself on board a cargo vessel with his address in mind. She spends two years in detention in England before making her way to Sarah’s house, with what will prove to be devastating timing."
