Modern Masterpiece

"I cried with joy when the children all began to play together in the sparkling foam of the waves that broke between worlds at the point. It was beautiful, and that is a word I would not need to explain to the girls from back home, and I do not need to explain to you, because now we are all speaking the same language." from Little Bee by Chris Cleave

I just finished this book and I just want to let you know that it is a true tour de force. A true modern masterpiece. It is another novel that introduced me to a subject I never knew about and is now a subject I care about deeply. Highly recommended.
