I didn’t read Moonglass, Jessi Kirby’s debut novel, but I’m so glad I got around to reading this one! In Honor is thought provoking, sweet, hilarious, and addicting – I loved this book!
Honor has to be one of my favorite characters. She’s dealing with her brother’s death, and so she goes on a long road trip without telling anyone (which is something I think we all dream of doing – just blasting to the road) to go to a concert with tickets left to her by her brother instead of going to orientation at UTA. When her brother’s best friend passes out flat drunk in the car she’s taking, she has no choice but to bring him along. It turns out that this will bring some hilarious, heartfelt, and eye opening moments, but Honor doesn’t realize that yet.
Rusty is one of those character you immediately hate. He’s drunk when you first meet him in the novel, and in the first half of the book, he’s making these rude comments the majority of the time, but as you move along and see a different side of him, I learned why Finn liked him so much. He’s hilarious, first of all, and also knows how to make people feel better.
Jessi Kirby wrote a novel that made me think about life, loss, regret, and all the things we love about people but don’t realize until they’re gone. And also how we have to trust people know what they’re doing, even if we don’t understand. I highly recommend this book. Thunderous applause for In Honor!
