On The Go With Jessi Kirby

Please welcome Jessi Kirby, author of the new book In Honor. Leave a comment & you can win a copy! 

You have been given your Dream Vacation. Where are you going & what are you doing?

The Mediterranean, without a doubt. I’ve always wanted to see the white houses on the cliffs overlooking that crazy blue water.  Plus I love Mediterranean food, so it’s a win all around.

What if you could travel to a different time period?

Hmm…I might go back to the twenties and be a flapper.

Are you a planner or a seat-of-the pants traveler?

I’m a planner by nature, but I do like to leave room for detours and unexpected adventures.

What's the worst thing that's ever happened to you on vacation?

Food poisoning. Enough said.

About the Book:
Honor receives her brother’s last letter from Iraq three days after learning that he died, and opens it the day his fellow Marines lay the flag over his casket. Its contents are a complete shock: concert tickets to see Kyra Kelly, her favorite pop star and Finn's celebrity crush. In his letter, he jokingly charged Honor with the task of telling Kyra Kelly that he was in love with her.

Grief-stricken and determined to grant Finn's last request, she rushes to leave immediately. But she only gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn's best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn't seen him in ages, thanks to a falling out between the two guys, but Rusty is much the same as Honor remembers him: arrogant, stubborn. . . and ruggedly good looking. Neither one is what the other would ever look for in a road trip partner, but the two of them set off together, on a voyage that makes sense only because it doesn’t. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn--but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?

  3. Food poisoning sounds awful at any given time and place. The Mediterranean sounds amazing right about now, definitely a place to relax after finals!

  4. *slurp* This book sounds incredible, Jessi!!

    Like you, I had terribly food poisoning on the most exotic vaca I've ever taken. Definitely put a damper on things--blick!

    This book sounds super cute! And I really enjoyed Moonglass by the same author.
