Beholding Bee is a book about a girl who has to brave people laughing at her because of her birthmark. Bee is an orphan who is allowed to stay with a woman at the circus. When Bee and her guardian Pauline get separated by a man, Bee needs support more than ever. After Pauline leaves, Bee runs away with her dog and pig. Soon she meets her great grandmothers and they send her to school. At school she learns that she doesn’t need to hide, but needs to show that she isn’t scared to be different or to show her birthmark or her feelings.
I think this is a great book! It really tells Bee’s story well, and I could feel what she felt in the story. It made me sad in some parts but encouraged me in others. I would give this book four and a half stars. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy loving and caring books.
