"Honey Girl is an emotional, heartfelt, charming debut, and I loved every moment of it." (Jasmine Guillory, New York Times best-selling author of The Proposal)

When becoming an adult means learning to love yourself first.

With her newly completed PhD in astronomy in hand, 28-year-old Grace Porter goes on a girls’ trip to Vegas to celebrate. She’s a straight A, work-through-the-summer certified high achiever. She is not the kind of person who goes to Vegas and gets drunkenly married to a woman whose name she doesn’t know…until she does exactly that.

This one moment of departure from her stern ex-military father’s plans for her life has Grace wondering why she doesn’t feel more fulfilled from completing her degree. Staggering under the weight of her parent’s expectations, a struggling job market and feelings of burnout, Grace flees her home in Portland for a summer in New York with the wife she barely knows.

In New York, she’s able to ignore all the constant questions about her future plans and falls hard for her creative and beautiful wife, Yuki Yamamoto. But when reality comes crashing in, Grace must face what she’s been running from all along - the fears that make us human, the family scars that need to heal and the longing for connection, especially when navigating the messiness of adulthood.

Speechless. Except this next rant.

This book is amazing. it looks at the implicit and explicit marginalization of bipoc, queer folk and women in academia -- especially stem. This book discusses the love you can lose for yourself in that journey, and the unfairness of the trek to find it again. This book is capital R Romantic. This book has sexual love and romance, but that isn't the main storyline in this tale. This book is romantic in the many forms of platonic love that weave together in creating the main character; and as love generally is in life, each of her loves incomplex.
The queer STEM (the field, not the queer classification) girl in me who has never read a WLW book is gushing, my chest feels so very full and seen and I straight up cried.
Thank you for this amazing book.

good book

I appreciated that this book had lesbian content, yet it wasnt the main focus. the character Grace was really easy to relate to and we see her go through growth. I also really appreciate the deep friendship bonds that held Grace together in her darkest moments.

I definitely recommend this book

Not Quite What I Expected

The book was good for sure, it just wasn’t what I expected. I guess reading the synopsis for the book gave it a more lighthearted, almost rom-com feel and while there were certainly some lighthearted, rom-com moments, that wasn’t the point of this book. It was heavy, much heavier than I expected. It dealt with topics such as self-harm, insecurity, race, sexuality, and so on. I do wish there was a disclaimer about the self-harm. It wasn’t graphic, but I know it can be quite triggering for some people.

The whole book felt REAL. For me, it wasn’t an escape. It was a head first dive into the depths of my own anxieties, my questioning about self-worth, the anger and sadness over our demons, and the frustration of trying to make it in a profession we weren’t meant to be in. Sometimes we need a book that doesn’t allow us to escape. We need a book to remind us we aren’t the only lonely people out there.

A gorgeous story about your young adulthood

No matter who you are, if you live through your 20s, you will identify with this story. Found family, identity, belonging, making your own way- it is universal for us all. I love the gorgeous cast of diverse characters I want to see more in books. I can’t wait to see what else Morgan Rogers writes.

It's gay and it slaps!

This book was so much more than I anticipated. I absolutely loved it and related to it in surprising ways. If you're looking for a book that tackles a range of issues including racism, women in stem, queer relationships, self harm and family issues... look no further.

Over hyped

It just wasn’t giving what y’all said it was supposed to gave. Felt like the storyline was going nowhere many times. Feels like so much was missing.

Beautifully Written

Honey Girl captures the beauty in broken people in a way I've never experienced in print before. The narration could have been better, but overall it is still a captivating story!

Narrator made it hard to get into

I could not finish this book because the narrator was very cold and choppy. It was distracting from the story and sadly I could not finish it.
