The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
I have heard wonderful things about this book so I felt a little let down when I actually got around to reading it. It is good; the diction is vivid and the characters are interesting, but the plot is predictable. I was not really surprised by anything that happens in this story of sisterhood and growing up.
The story is told in the first person through the eyes of a young girl named Lily. Her voice and character gives the story part of its quirkiness. While I liked the book and did want to finish it, part of me was bored.
