4/5 stars

A beautifully written story of grief and loss shared by the main characters, Honor and her brother’s best friend Rusty as they embark on an impromptu road trip (even though the last thing they want is to be around each other’s company) to honor the memory of Finn, Honor’s brother who died while on battle.

I feel like I could see a pattern in Ms. Jessy Kirby’s stories. They’re usually about grief written in a very lyrical but realistic manner without overwhelming the reader with too much emotion so that you could actually enjoy the read despite the sad undertone of the story. There’s also that consistent subtle but funny humor and that adorable romance that’s almost barely there making you long for more. There’s a picturesque description of places the characters visit and the story concludes perfectly.

So just like Things We Know by HeartIn Honor is a perfect summer read that is both entertaining and touching at the same time. I would definitely read more books by the author.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
