A few years ago my sons english class was reading a book..I always tried to read the books he was assigned to read also. Well the book had a yellow cover. It was about a young black girl whos mother was a slave to this white family. The war broke out and people were killed and the white girl in the family and the black girl were left and survived...thats vague but thats all I remember. I want to see the title had something to do with bees. Anyone know what book Im talking about?
