It makes you say Ah-HAH!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 24, 2023
I try to read as many Jodi Picoult (and with her on this book Jennifer Finney Boylan) books as I can get my hands on, and I'm glad I got my hands on this one! What I love about Picout's books is that she presents her readers with a new issue in every book, a different main issue that we didn't know how little we knew about it.
Here, it is about trans people - transsexual and transgender people and the ways other people accept - or not - transsexuals into their world.
Asher is a great kid, a great teenager and companion to his divorced mother Olivia, a beekeeper in tiny Adams, New Hampshire. Asher has a best friend named Maya, and girlfriend named Lily. These three, plus parents and school mates all find themselves navigating a murder in their midst. That's when you say, "Ah-HAH!" at the end. I can say no more.
If anyone ever wanted to know about beekeeping, this would be the book that would make you want to learn more. The details about beekeeping are plentiful and sometimes they run parallel to the story. Bees are fascinating creatures that keep us all alive.
Get this book for the compelling page-turner and read it for the beekeeping lessons! You won't be sorry on either account!
