The Death of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell is a unique, heartbreaking story that takes the reader to a squalid neighborhood in Glascow where two teenage sisters have a couple of secrets buried in their backyard; their parents. The girls are taken in by their lonely, gay neighbor who tries to heal the damage done by their drug addled, neglectful parents. Told in alternating chapters by each sister and their neighbor, this dark tale explores the wide range of human brutality and kindness.
