The cover of this book is absolutely darling and completely irresistible! Honey is a cute, middle grade book about ten year old Melody. Unlike some fiction, this story is 100% plausible; everything that happened really could happen to a ten year old. This gives the book an authentic feel and will make it easy for young readers to relate to Melody. There is a small mystery to be solved and there is a dog (although the dog plays a minor role). A bonus is a quirky hair and nail salon owner and an amazing array of fingernail polishes–101 to be precise. Because it of its short length and the age of the characters, this book is a great choice for readers who have recently left behind chapter books.
