Bees by Laline Paull

Bees is a novel about the life cycle of a hive of honey bees told from the perspective of one of the worker bees named Flora. Flora was born to be a sanitation worker in the hive but worked her way up to be a forager, one who brings nectar and pollen to the hive. She is larger that most bees in the hive and a fierce fighter. She knows she is different that the other bees but this doesn't deter her from giving everything she's capable of for the good of the hive even when she lays an egg and tries to keep it alive while hiding it.
An easy read and good narrative moves the story along and reveals social classes in the hive.
