Little Bee by Chris Cleave (Featuring Carl)

Long Beach Public Library

Welcome to Book Bites! Hosted by teen services librarian Josh Sanchez, each episode will feature a guest who will talk about one of their favorite YA or teen books. We'll make recommendations for similar books, as well as movies, music--even food. New episodes are released on the first and third Tuesday of every month!

This month, we're talking to Carl about Little Bee by Chris Cleave. It's the story of a young asylum-seeker fleeing Nigeria for England in search of the family that saved her life. Carl and I discuss how difficult books like this can give perspective while teaching us more about the world; we also talk about the often unfair hurdles asylum seekers and migrants must overcome when entering a new country.
