American Honey by Nancy Scrafano
After graduating high school, Olivia “Ollie” McKenna leaves her small town roots in Summerville, Georgia, to pursue her dream of becoming a professional singer. With her best friend and older sister in tow, wholesome Ollie travels to the big city to compete in singing contest Atlanta Idol.
There she meets nineteen-year-old Jack Bradley, a fellow country singer who quickly becomes a close friend. The connection between them is magnetic and an opportunity to sing together
could change their lives forever. But what about Ollie’s mama’s fear of the music business? She’s been burned by the lures of the bright lights before and doesn’t want Ollie anywhere near that world. And Ollie’s growing feelings for Jack as more than just a pal could ruin everything. Despite her own doubts, Ollie is determined to win. Can she make her dream come true or will she return to her hometown empty-handed and brokenhearted?
Review: Nancy Scrafano has written an adorable book! American Honey is a quick and easy read with a like-able main character (not to mention the title is named after an awesome song). A lot of the book took place in the next town over from where I live, so i was interested to see how Nancy described the area of North Carolina.
I would, recommend this book to readers of Young Adult and New Adult.
