Flora 717 is a sanitation worker, one of the lowliest bees in a hive where work is paramount and worship of the Queen the only religion. But Flora is not like other bees. Her self-knowledge and curiosity make her a threat to the ways of her kin...but she may also be their only hope during a season that threatens the hive's very survival. Laline Paull delivers a totally weird and brilliantly imaginative chronicle based on observations of actual bees.
