The Death of Bees

The Death of Bees - Lisa O'Donnell Wow!! This story is told evenly between 3 narrators. Not in chapters but in pages so you feel like you are getting on the spot perspectives on what just happened. 2 girls are left abandoned in Glasgow when their mum smothers their dad and then hangs herself. This of course creates all kinds of problems beginning with burying everybody in the garden and keeping the secret hidden. The language is a bit rough but really quite funny and a gritty story of people fumbling and bumbling along trying to save each other no matter how damaged they are.
