"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.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Rogers's frothy debut, a high-achieving 20-something Black woman blows up her life. Grace Porter is spending a weekend in Las Vegas with her two friends to celebrate completing her doctorate in astronomy, when she wakes up to find a note from Yuki Yamamoto, a woman she'd hooked up with--and gotten married to--the night before. Back home in Portland, Ore., Grace reckons with her reckless behavior and hazy "champagne-pink" memories while trying to continue living up to her strict, financially supportive military father's expectations as she pursues a career in a field dominated by white men. Even though Grace is surrounded by a loving group of friends and roommates, she still feels alone and untethered. She decides to abandon her life plan to travel to New York to meet Yuki, a waitress and late-night radio storyteller. Still feeling restless, Grace heads to Florida to work on her free-spirited mother's orange grove. There, Grace searches for a way to move forward on her own terms. While the story's minimal tension gives the reader ample time to wonder if it's worth plowing through, the dialogue is pitch-perfect ("What the hell would I look like on Dateline talking about how you disappeared in Las Vegas?" a friend admonishes Grace). Patient readers will find plenty to appreciate in this rom-com. Agent: Holly Root, Root Literary. (Feb.)"
