In Honor by Jessi Kirby

In HonorHonor receives her brother’s last letter from Iraq three days after learning that he died, and opens it the day his fellow Marines lay the flag over his casket. Its contents are a complete shock: concert tickets to see Kyra Kelly, her favorite pop star and Finn’s celebrity crush. In his letter, he jokingly charged Honor with the task of telling Kyra Kelly that he was in love with her.
Grief-stricken and determined to grant Finn’s last request, she rushes to leave immediately. But she only gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn’s best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn’t seen him in ages, thanks to a falling out between the two guys, but Rusty is much the same as Honor remembers him: arrogant, stubborn . . . and ruggedly good-looking. Neither one is what the other would ever look for in a road trip partner, but the two of them set off together, on a voyage that makes sense only because it doesn’t. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn--but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?

In Honor is fantastic. I was really excited to read it, since In Honor is a roadtrip book (and who doesn’t love a good roadtrip book?). The characters were so well written, and there wasn’t a single dull moment. In Honor may even be better than Moonglass, Kirby’s first novel-which was fantastic.

The characters in In Honor were superb. Honor had amazing character development throughout the story, and it was easy to see how much she grew while on her travels. Honor had a lot to deal with, but she dealt with her problems in an organic and believable way. Honor’s partner during her roadtrip is her brother’s ex-best-friend Rusty. Rusty was adorable. I honestly wasn’t expecting to like him as much as I did. However, I fell hopelessly in love with him. Though they bickered a lot, Honor and Rusty were an unstoppable duo.

In Honor is an awesome roadtrip book. Jessi Kirby has written an unforgettable novel about dealing with grief and forgiveness. It was a quick and engaging read. I highly recommend that you go out and pick up a copy of In Honor. It was lovely.
