“HONEY GIRL is an emotional, heartfelt, charming debut, and I loved every moment of it.”
— Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal

When becoming an adult means learning to love yourself first.

With her newly completed PhD in astronomy in hand, twenty-eight-year-old Grace Porter goes on a girls’ trip to Vegas to celebrate. She’s a straight A, work-through-the-summer certified high achiever. She is not the kind of person who goes to Vegas and gets drunkenly married to a woman whose name she doesn’t know…until she does exactly that.

This one moment of departure from her stern ex-military father’s plans for her life has Grace wondering why she doesn’t feel more fulfilled from completing her degree. Staggering under the weight of her parent’s expectations, a struggling job market and feelings of burnout, Grace flees her home in Portland for a summer in New York with the wife she barely knows.

In New York, she’s able to ignore all the constant questions about her future plans and falls hard for her creative and beautiful wife, Yuki Yamamoto. But when reality comes crashing in, Grace must face what she’s been running from all along—the fears that make us human, the family scars that need to heal and the longing for connection, especially when navigating the messiness of adulthood.

About the Author


"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 on Instagram
