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.
