From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg

Claudia is my kind of kid--in order to teach her parents a lesson, she decides to run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, since she likes art and it will be a comfortable place to hide out. She brings along one of her brothers, but only because he has money. I remember reading this as a kid and loving the idea of living in a museum. It also has a mystery element to the story, as they try to uncover the secret behind a new statue on display at the museum.

According to Wikipedia, Little Bee “is a dual narrative story about a Nigerian asylum-seeker and a British magazine editor, who meet during the oil conflict in the Niger Delta, and are re-united in England several years later. Cleave, inspired as a university student by his temporary employment in an asylum detention centre, wrote the book in an attempt to humanise the plight of asylum-seekers in Britain. The novel examines the treatment of refugees by the asylum system, as well as issues of British colonialism, globalization, political violence and personal accountability.”
