From award-winning author Sarah Weeks comes the sweet story of a girl learning to cope with the loss of her mother. Melody never knew her mother. She died just after Melody was born, and it's been just her and her father for nearly eleven years now. Compared to the stories she's heard of her mother's remarkable personality, Melody feels completely unremarkable. And then her father starts acting mysterious. Determined to figure out what's wrong, Melody follows some leads to a nail salon, where she makes new friends, and even finds an old one from her mother's past. But friends aren't enough when Melody discovers that she's going to get a new stepmother, one she detests. And what she wishes for more than anything . . . is to have her mother to talk to. So much for an eleventh birthday surprise, right? Told with a generous helping of heart and humor as only Sarah Weeks can, Honey tells the sweet story of a girl whose eleventh birthday brings the most important gift of all.

"It's almost impossible to select narrator Rebecca Soler's best character in this gem for young listeners.... The story's rich text is enhanced by Soler's delivery, with verbs and adjectives getting all the necessary verve." (AudioFile)
Sarah Week's book Pie is one of my FAVORITE kids books. I was slightly disappointed with the serious backstory in this book that is meant for children. Still entertaining but if you are trying to choose between the two don't miss out on PIE!
