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?

The way you write is like I can see and hear the story unfolding like one of my own thoughts. It is simple amazing, I am so addicted -- almost done reading it and it makes me sad. Lorabeth is spunky and such a great character! And Petro...he's intriguing as well as Hedda. Bravo (:

Ahhhh this is so amazing Kim. I know that's such a very generic comment, but I really mean it. You've sucked me into a world that is all its own; I've never read anything like this before. It's truly magical, and whimsical and...I don't know. Tantalizing. I'm only half-way through, but I have a migraine today and have already proved myself to be an idiot by staring at this screen as long as I have. I think I need to sleep. But I want to finish this NOW! I absolutely adore Petro (I cheated and saw on pinterest that he's inspired by Eddie Redmayne and gracious, my heart was his). I think he's lovely (especially the way he cuts her name in half all the time and she hates it). Lorabeth is WONDERFUL! I am in love with her as well- her love for bees and her loyalty and I'm so grateful she's a wary heroine. Stupid heroines drive me mad. Hedda is so intriguing as well, and I want more of Lorabeth's background and her family and the circus world that I know I have to look forward to. Man oh man. Okay, I should get away from this screen. I'm in love though. I shall return as soon as possible. ;) (And just for the record, my reading experience has been improved by the Brothers Bloom and Finding Neverland soundtracks, and their whimsical style. It's a great way to read.) ;)

Caith seems mischievous--my interest just shot up. A hypnotist fits your world, especially one like him, and you were tricky, tricky with that chapter title. Very curious to see where this goes!

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.
