Lisa O'Donnel's debut coming of age story did not disappoint. The opening lines suggest the dark and heart-clinching read to come.
15-year-old Marnie and her little sister Nelly are alone in Glasgow on Christmas Eve, having just buried their parents in the backyard. Marnie becomes the head of the household, while she is struggling to grow up, and support her little sister. As the story unfolds the mysterious beginning is explained.
Marnie and Nelly have a hard life, and my heart went out to them throughout the book. It is sad when you think the demise of their parents was the best thing to have happened to them. I loved all the raw and riveting characters in this book, even the supporting ones.
Death of Bees isn't for the faint of heart, and it is not a young adult book. Getting to connect with these characters (and wanting to protect them from the world) is a worthwhile experience.This book is an astounding read.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman will be that book that stays with me for a long time. Gaiman throws a magical fairytale spin on growing up and finding companionship. I was definitely enthralled by Gaiman's narration of his newest dark story that reads like a Grimms' Fairy Tale, it was an lovely experience and I cant wait to read more of his work.
