Secret Life of Bees
I was hoping by the length that it would be quick read but I didn't feel like picking it up whenever I had the chance. I felt it took too long to reach the denouement and found myself wondering what's the author's point in writing this book. I found it rather unbelievable at times (Would a grown women at any time leave her life/home to go with a teenager no matter what her race?) but was definitely rooting for Lily and Rosaleen to make it work in a new place. Not a top recommendation but not too bad either. I know people who enjoyed more than I.
Beautiful Story. Great Drama and what a life for Lily. I compare my life with hers. The way Lily suffered is heartbraking. This story teaches you to love and think about others more than yourself. I love you Corinne Quinette. I think about you night and day.

What an enjoyable read! I loved the part when Lily examines her piss in the woods. Really showed how we should all get along.
This book is SO heartwarming. It truly gives you hope of life and its inspiring, as well as uplifting. From the sympathetic storyline to the amazingly put together characters... its, a must read by all!
I thought this book was a fantastic piece of writing which Kidd did an excellent work on. Her words and the way Lily is portraied in this novel is absolutely wonderful. The setting is extremly overwhelming and i think this novel should be read by anyone who likes books based on Coming-to-age type feels. Age: 15.
It's alright for what it is but it aint all that.
age 14:This was one of the best books I have ever read it was an inspirational book about a girl my age growing up in South Carolina during a rough period, and also evolving from a girl into a women without the guidence to get her through, We were just given this book to read as a school thing I loved it so much I was on a panel at our local library and I also tried kneeling on grits! (don't do it! its very painfull) this book is probaly one of my Favorites!
this is a realllllly good book that has one of the best messages for young girls that any book could have. i highly reccomend this to any one looking for a good enjoyable reading book!
