In Honor (Books from A to Z)

I have read so many awesome reviews of Kirby's novel, Moonglass, and have it on my list to read.  Now, she has a new one, In Honor, arriving in May.  I know I have to have it as well.  I thought it would be a perfect pick for my Contemporary reading challenges.  

As a mom of a young man who served in the Army, I can relate to this novel.  I could not begin to imagine having to face what Honor does!
Blurb:  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?
About the Author:   Jessi Kirby is a former English teacher and librarian. She lives in Orange County, CA with her husband and two kids, where she writes stories and runs the beach every day. Well, almost every day.
