Too young to smoke, too young to drink, too young to fuck, but who would have stopped me?Hazlehurst housing estate, Glasgow, Christmas Eve 2010.

Fifteen-year-old Marnie and her little sister Nelly have just finished burying their parents in the back garden. Only Marnie and Nelly know how they got there. Lennie, the old guy next door, has taken a sudden interest in his two young neighbours and is keeping a close eye on them. He soon realises that the girls are all alone, and need his help - or does he need theirs?As the year ends and another begins, the sisters friends, their neighbours, and the authorities - not to mention the local drug dealer, whos been sniffing around for their father - gradually start to ask questions. And as one lie leads to another, darker secrets about Marnies family come to light, making things even more complicated.Written with fierce sympathy and beautiful precision, The Death of Bees is an enchanting and grimly comic tale of three lost souls who, unable to answer for themselves, can answer only for each other.
