Mwa ha ha ha! The only problem I had with this book was that I wished it was longer Nothing dragged out and nothing cut too short.
Like little bears porridge, chair, and bed, it was perfect! I'm not surprised their making a movie out of it I just hope that most people read the book before going to see it, because if they mess it up in the movie, that could deterr a lot of people from reading this wonderful book.
And typically books are better than movies, because there's more and you have more freedom for thought. I also want them to cast me. I hope she doesn't write a sequel though, because The Secret Life of Bees can truely stand on it's own.
And I'm sure as much as many people want to read more about Lily Owens and the Daughters of Mary, I think it will be hard for the second novel to live up to the expectations the first one made.

There they are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters named May, June, and August.
Lily thinks of them as the calendar sisters and enters their mesmerizing secret world of bees and honey, and of the Black Madonna who presides over this household of strong, wise women. Maternal loss and betrayal, guilt and forgiveness entwine in a story that leads Lily to the single thing her heart longs for most.
The Secret Life of Bees has a rare wisdom about life—about mothers and daughters and the women in our lives who become our true mothers.

It is the kind of novel that women share with each other and that mothers will hand down to their daughters for years to come.
