Honeybee is the follow up novel to Craig Silvey’s acclaimed ‘Jasper Jones.’ It follows the story of an old widowed man and a young transgender teenager after a chance encounter brings them together. The story is a beautiful and heartbreaking coming of age story about resilience and growth in the face of extreme challenges.
"I loved that it will make you laugh and cry within the same chapter, as moments of tragedy are intertwined with joy and happiness. An absolutely essential read, well loved by the whole LM team."
