I was reading Izzy May I: The Write Book Cover over on the blog, Izzy Grabs Life. She asked the question: What makes a book cover grab your attention? I straight away thought of Chris Cleave’s powerful and heart-breaking story, “Little Bee”.
Everything about this book attracted my attention: the intriguing title, the swirly font, the front cover’s striking silhouette on bright yellow, the blurb on the back and my sister saying, “You’ve got to read this book! It’s brilliant!” And, she was right. I couldn’t put the book down. I had to find out what happened.
