Melody has lived in Royal, Indiana, for as long as she can remember. It’s always been just her and her father, and she’s okay with that. But then she overhears him calling someone Honey — and suddenly it feels like everyone in Royal has a secret. It’s up to Melody and her best friend, Nick, to piece together the clues and discover why Honey is being hidden.
Meanwhile, a dog named Mo arrives in Royal. He doesn’t remember much from when he was a puppy… but he keeps dreaming of a girl he feels he is bound to meet someday. This girl, he’s sure, will change everything. If only he knew who she was.
Here’s what the reviews have to say about HONEY….
“…recommend this warm and good-hearted novel to fans of Kate Dicamillo’s Because of Winn Dixie.” – SLJ
“…Weeks gets the small moments just right…” –Kirkus
“…realistic and engaging characters….” –Publisher’s Weekly
“I finished it with tears brimming. What a treasure! What a perfect middle grade book! Perfect length, gorgeous cover, not one wasted word, a beautiful father/daughter relationship, a hysterical grandfather, a great boy/girl best friendship, an adorably annoying, pesky younger neighbor, a hoot of a misunderstanding and the longing of a dog.- Prose and Kahn (my new favorite book BLOG)
