MORGAN ROGERS is a queer Black millennial. She writes books for queer girls who are looking for their place in the world. She lives in Maryland with her pets. Honey Girl is her debut novel.
"With imagery that leaps from the pages, HONEY GIRL is a brilliant debut. A story about finding your place in the world, about finding love--and accepting it by learning to love yourself. Prepare for this one to vault its way to the top of your TBR pile." -- Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author
"For all the sweet charm of the blossoming love between Grace
and Yuki, the book is especially notable for its celebration of
friendship, especially in queer communities, and for exploring the
many ways relationships can be meaningful and intimate beyond
romance... A strong romantic fiction debut that will appeal to
readers looking for a story of true love via self-discovery." --
*STARRED REVIEW* KIRKUS REVIEWS "Honey
Girl is an absorbing read, and deftly captures the trappings
of millennial life, especially for queer Black, Indigenous and
people of color characters in American cities. Its expansion on
what a love story can be feels restorative, especially as we cross
the threshold into our second year of a pandemic during which
expressing love has become more important than ever. This is the
kind of non-YA coming-of-age novel the world could use more of."
-- Sarah Neilson for Seattle
Times "Rogers's debut novel is a soul-stirring
rom-com in reverse."--OPRAH MAGAZINE
"HONEY GIRL is an emotional, heartfelt, charming debut, and I loved
every moment of it. Morgan Rogers is an incredible talent; she
creates characters I couldn't stop thinking about, and who I loved
immediately. I can't wait to see what she does next." --
Jasmine Guillory, New York Times
bestselling author of The
Proposal "HONEY GIRL is a fun, heartfelt and
uncompromising look at the risks we take to find love and discover
who we are. Morgan Rogers' unique and often poetic prose makes you
feel found. It makes you feel seen, no matter who you are.
There is a sweetness to HONEY GIRL you'll want to savor for a very
long time!" -- Catherine Adel West, author of
Saving Ruby King "A captivating
story--readers will be rooting for Grace to come
into her own." -- Yaffa S. Santos, author of A Taste of
Sage "Pitch-perfect... readers will find plenty to
appreciate in this rom-com."--PUBLISHERS
WEEKLY "One of the best parts of this book is the
friendships. These friends listen to, support, and love each
other...For fans of Queenie and The Bride
Test."--SHELF AWARENESS "With a cast
of diverse and underrepresented characters, Rogers's debut is a
beautiful story of learning to love in so many ways:
untraditionally, through deep hurt, through mental illness, and
through struggles with which readers can relate. Highly
recommended."--LIBRARY JOURNAL "It's
earnest and funny and captures that time after you finish school
when you have a life crisis in such a poetic and awesome way. Also,
lesbian romance with an astronomy PhD?! YES PLEASE!"
