When Batman (in his four-year-old incarnation) is one of the principal characters in a book, we can bet that "Justice and Judgment" will be a big theme. Justice isn't something easy to see or easy to get in this novel. Good people die, while their killers go unpunished. A young girl is locked in a detention center with adults for two years of her life. A young boy loses his father to the grips of depression and despair. There are millions of people suffering in the world. The novel explores how utterly overwhelming it can be to acknowledge all the injustice in the world, and how hard it can be to try to put a dent in all that. Ultimately, justice in Little Bee is between individuals who act bravely and unselfishly to try to make things right, even at great cost.
