Honey and Me by Karen McCombie (Children's, 9 years +, 10E/10E)

Content: humour, bittersweet situations, 

Summary from Barrington Stoke
Kirsten's facing a rough time and turns to her old friend Honey for help. They haven't spoken in ages, but they're 'forever friends' and nothing will change that. Because Honey isn't like other girls.

Nayu's thoughts 
So far every book Karen writes which I've read needs a tissue warning. Honey and me is bittersweet. I wanted to scoop Kirsten up and tell her that everything will work out eventually, which it does. It just has to go very wrong before it can right itself. Feeling out of place isn't a fun emotion to feel, and can really get you down, which Karen accurately conveys. I had a different theory on who Honey was, which made her actual identity a pleasant surprise. Honey is exactly what Kirsten needs to cheer her up, as too are some newer friends who are there if she just reaches out to them.
