When Lorabeth decided to fall in love, she knew it wasn't going to be easy. Unlike the bees that she trained, boys were strange, unpredictable creatures. Since the most popular girl in school, Hedda, receives love letters on a weekly basis, Lorabeth thought that taking a peek at those letters would help... or perhaps not. Lorabeth and Hedda are united by a strange deadly fire and a swarm of encroaching predators that threaten the school of apiology. Will Lorabeth be able to find true love and save her school from these mysterious enemies? And what does a coat rack, yellow ribbon, hypnotist, and tapioca have to do with it?

After reading this a few days ago, I felt bad for not leaving a comment (I'm horrible like that). I thought I'd write one up to say just how much I loved this new chapter.

Caith seems like a nice guy, but it's too early to tell. His hypnotist background makes me hesitant to trust him, although I'm sure in the end I'll probably have a huge crush on him or something (I hope he doesn't end up being a big jerk; then you'd really make me eat my words). Like you said in the beginning of the chapter, he's two-faced. The point really got driven home when Headmistress Holcomb lets on that Caith has already enrolled in the school.

I side with Lorabeth for being standoffish towards him after Headmistress says that Caith will be sharing her hive. I imagine it sort of like having to share your most valuable possession with a total stranger. It will be interesting to see how they get along with that in coming chapters.

Okay, Rosalind is like the awesomest person ever. I don't know what I like so much about her (or Moira, for that matter), but something in her quirky personality makes me want to go along with all her silly campaigns. She sort of has me convinced that knitting needles DO harm bees--call me crazy.

Anyway, that's my two cents on this chapter. I really liked it. Hopefully I can now go pluck up the motivation to go comment on the other stories I'm reading. :)

Love this story!!!! Glad you wrote a new chapter :) Caith is intriguing, but i'm actually really glad you are making Lorabeth unsure about him. Adds drama and depth.

Oh my goodness Kim! I knew there was a reason for why I was putting of reading this story. For a long time now, I have glanced at 'Boys and Bees' again and again and just knew that I shouldn't start reading it yet because their would come a time where my mind would be completely clear and just ready for a story to take over.

I've never been a big fan of bee's, but then I never saw them in such a magical lighting either. I love this world you created and I'm completely in love with Lorabeth and her wild hair. All you characters have something that just makes the reader connect to them, even if it's just a a small little part of them.

I really can't wait for more of this and to find out more about Caith and hopefully Lorabeths parents.

I absolutely adore your writing and this story just left me breathless and excited to find out so much more! Truly it was magical.

I just am so delighted with this story in every way – the characters – the mystery – the magical world you have created – and your AMAZING writing and imagery – AH ***sigh***

Pg 22 - Atticus’s usual cafeteria company was usually – drop one of those “usual” references.

Lorabeth’s mouth wobbled into a tiny smile – brilliant!

Please keep writing – this is wonderful.
