Everyone else I know loved this book, and I really wanted to love it. But at best, I felt like it was "ok". Maybe it's because I'm reading it much later, in a very different political climate? I don't know. But I found myself not really enjoying it. ( )

The only thing that keeps me from giving this book 5 stars is that I thought the ending felt rushed. Other than that, this book was wonderful. There's even quite a few little tidbits of wisdom from August throughout the pages that are worth remembering. ( )

I used this book for tutoring a few years ago and the main thing I remember is that we called it SLoB. I also remember a horrible scene where the main character had to kneel on grits. Also, I remember it being about a family of Black women in the American South.

As I think I said in my review of [book:Tangerine], I always feel a little uncomfortable reading books about a white character inhabiting a non-white world for the sake of that character learning about life. It's not that these kinds of books are always bad reads, it's just that the convention seems really worn out and can be...what's the word? Exoticising? Other-ing? If I were still taking undergard American Lit classes, I would maybe tackle this subject. But as I am now a Library School student, I will just say that I wouldn't enthusiastically recommend it. ( )

Grieving over the loss of her mother and the relentless abuse of her father, Lily goes in search of clues about her mother, hoping to find answers in a place she thinks her mother may have been connected with. During her quest, she finds herself having to examine her attitudes about interracial relationships. She learns about beekeeping and the black Madonna, both bodies of knowledge that contribute to her understanding of key roles that females play in the social order ( )

I enjoyed this book. It wasn't hard at all to learn the background and the characters. I was fascinated with the topic of bees, and how a whole story was built around bees, their habits, and their honey. But, the story was way more than just about bees. It covered secrets, prejudice, harsh times, and how ultimately how friendship can help heal even deep wounds. This book was definitely worth reading. I loved the fact that the setting was in SC. I wondered if the average reader, however, would have known that by mentioning Bull Street in the story, that was where the psychiatric patients in SC were kept. And, I smiled at the peanut in Coke reference. That sure was down-home country to me. It's a great book to learn what it was like to live during the 60's, to live in SC, and to make a living out of raising bees for honey. I highly recommend it! ( )

Lily is a wonderfully petulant and self-absorbed adolescent, and Kidd deftly portrays her sense of injustice as it expands to accommodate broader social evils. At the same time, the political aspects of Lily's growth never threaten to overwhelm the personal.

At night I would lie in bed and watch the show, how bees squeezed through the cracks of my bedroom wall and flew circles around the room making that propeller sound, a high-pitched zzzzzz that hummed along my skin.

"She liked to tell everybody that women made the best beekeepers, 'cause they have a special ability built into them to love creatures that sting. 'It comes from years of loving children and husbands,' she'd say."
