I thought The Death Of Bees was going to be a dark book, focusing mainly on the death and burial of Izzy and Gene, but it was a much more touching tale of three lost people clinging to one another to create their own unique family unit.

The Death of Bees will and should shock you, but it should also make you question who exactly should be reviled and how we can live in a world where children would rather bury their own parents in the dark of night than face the alternative.
