On the surface level, Honey Girl sounds like a great romantic story, and it does.

At the center of it though, it's a story about self-growth, confronting trauma, and working on being the better version of yourself. It's also a story about letting go of things that familiar but doesn't serve you anymore.

I adore the way Honey Girl explores the topic of support system & family (both given & chosen) too. I love how raw and tender it is. The narrator of the audiobook also does a great job.

I am certainly biased because I can relate to the struggle that the main protagonist going through. No wonder this story speaks to me personally & I will very likely rate it higher for that.

If you're looking for contemporary fiction about personal growth featuring a lost protagonist & a healthy dose of the found family dynamic, this might be the book for you.
