For a girl like Melody and a dog like Mo, life can be both sticky and sweet.

Melody has lived in Royal, Indiana, for as long as she can remember. It’s been just her and her father, and she’s been okay with that. But then she overhears him calling someone Honey—and suddenly it feels like everyone in Royal has a secret. It’s up to Melody and her best friend, Nick, to piece together the clues and discover why Honey is being hidden.

Meanwhile, a dog named Mo is new to Royal. He doesn’t remember much from when he was a puppy, but he keeps having dreams of a girl he is bound to meet someday. This girl, he’s sure, will change everything.

In Honey, Sarah Weeks introduces two characters—one a girl, one a dog—who are reaching back further than their memories in order to figure out where they came from and where they’re going. It’s a total treat from beginning to end.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Interwoven with Melody’s story are two others: that of Bee-Bee Churchill, the owner of the town’s new beauty salon, the Bee Hive, and Bee-Bee’s ten-year-old French bulldog, Mo, who has his own significant back story…Weeks succeeds in creating an emotionally credible and moving resolution, as well as a small cast of realistic and engaging characters to flesh out the town of Royal. Readers who like words will enjoy the list of 100 nail-polish names Melody creates for the Bee Hive [salon], which concludes this straightforward, affecting read.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Along with her friend, Nick Woo, and a cast of winning supporting characters, Melody sets out to discover ‘Honey’s’ identity…Weeks has a good eye for the details of Melody’s life—her anxiety about school, her love for her father and grandfather, and her need to learn more about her mother. Recommend this warm and good-hearted novel to fans of Kate Dicamillo’s Because of Winn-Dixie.”

    School Library Journal

  • “It’s almost impossible to select narrator Rebecca Soler’s best character in this gem for young listeners…Soler is self-assured and bright as Melody, her best friend, Nick, and her kind dad. Other memorable characterizations include those of a bratty six-year-old neighbor named Teeny and Grandpo Bishop, who goes to the garage ‘to look for a hammer’ when he’s going for a smoke. The story’s rich text is enhanced by Soler’s delivery, with verbs and adjectives getting all the necessary verve. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
