In Honor by Jessi Kirby Review
Reading Level:Young Adult
Publisher:Simon and Schuster
A devastating loss leads to an unexpected road trip in this novel from the author of Moonglass, whose voice Sarah Dessen says “is fresh and wise, all at once.”
Hours after her brother’s military funeral, Honor opens the last letter Finn ever sent. In her grief, she interprets his note as a final request and spontaneously decides to go to California to fulfill it.
Honor gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn’s best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn’t seen Rusty in ages, but it’s obvious he is as arrogant and stubborn as ever—not to mention drop-dead gorgeous. Despite Honor’s better judgment, the two set off together on a voyage from Texas to California. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn’s memory—but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?
In Honor was exactly what I needed. I've heard such great things about this. I ditched my to read pile. Instead I picked this up because I wanted a easy, quick read. This was perfect. I read it in about a day. I loved every second. This has really made me want to read more contemporary.
I loved Honor. Her personality was great. She seemed really adventurous . I love how she just picked up and went on this crazy road trip without a second thought. I can't imagine what would have happened if she hadn't included Rusty on her adventure. I am in love with Rusty. He is so adorable very and funny.
The whole point of this is that Honor's brother Finn passed on. He left her a letter and concert tickets. So Honor decides to pick up and go on this crazy road trip. I wish I could go on such a amazing road trip. Not only was it very eventful it was also a learning experience. She learned things she never knew about not only Rusty but her brother also.
This book really just made me feel uplifted. I really think that everyone should read this because it really is a easy read. But there's also meaning behind it. I think this has something everyone can take from it. I highly recommend this because I really enjoyed it and I think others will too. 5/5 stars
