This song represents Lily's triumph and empowerment when she learns the secret of life of bees along with the skills of beekeeping. She is stronger and becoming acclimated to a world that offers constant rejections and she has found self-acceptance. On Page 275, it reads, "Me and my mother. I didn't care about anything on this earth except the way her face was tipped toward mine, our noses touching, how wide and gorgeous her smile was..."

This song reminds me of Lily's escape through imagination and her fascination with bees. The "little things" as the song title mentions, are indeed the bees from the story in the book. On Page 1, it reads, "and I imagined them in there turning the walls into honeycombs, with honey seeping out for me to taste."

This song represents Lily's confusion and frustration about being kicked out of charm school for not having an official "white" female guardian. It has a drowsy and melancholy quality to it that catches my attention. On Page 9, it reads "I got barred because I didn't have a mother, a grandmother, or even a measly aunt to present me with a white rose at the closing ceremony. Rosaleen doing it was against the rules."

This song represents my opinion of how Lily is disappointed about her hair and not having a mother. On Page 3, it reads, "You can tell which girls lack mothers by the look of their hair."
