Publisher Description

The highly anticipated new novel by the bestselling author of Jasper Jones.


'Find out who you are, and live that life.'


Late in the night, fourteen-year-old Sam Watson steps onto a quiet overpass, climbs over the rail and looks down at the road far below.


At the other end of the same bridge, an old man, Vic, smokes his last cigarette.


The two see each other across the void. A fateful connection is made, and an unlikely friendship blooms. Slowly, we learn what led Sam and Vic to the bridge that night. Bonded by their suffering, each privately commits to the impossible task of saving the other.


Honeybee is a heartbreaking, life-affirming novel that throws us headlong into a world of petty thefts, extortion plots, botched bank robberies, daring dog rescues and one spectacular drag show.


At the heart of Honeybee is Sam: a solitary, resilient young person battling to navigate the world as their true self; ensnared by loyalty to a troubled mother, scarred by the volatility of a domineering stepfather, and confounded by the kindness of new alliances.


Honeybee is a tender, profoundly moving novel, brimming with vivid characters and luminous words. It's about two lives forever changed by a chance encounter -- one offering hope, the other redemption. It's about when to persevere, and when to be merciful, as Sam learns when to let go, and when to hold on.

Amazing

Inspiring, insightful, wonderful. Couldn’t put it down.

Beautiful

What a beautiful, painful; tragic story. The characters are so well written, so much depth and offering so much connection.
You will need the tissues. This story will make your heart ache for Honeybee the whole way through. Forget about binge watching, I binge read this story and have only just finished it now, at 1.35 in the morning. It was worth it.

Love

I couldn’t put this book down. So intelligent. So emotive. Heart wrenching at times. Human kindness is EVERYTHING. Thank you for giving children like Sam a voice. I will think about, and remember this book, all the days of my life.
