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!" -- Felicia Day
