Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite Honey Butter is a lovely coming of age story by Millie Florence. Seven-year-old Jamie Johnson feels lonely and misunderstood at home. Her unhappiness is mainly caused by her big sister, Erica, who never misses a chance to pester her. When she meets thirteen-year-old Laren Lark, the two become friends. They wish they had parts of each other’s lives, although Laren is more appreciative of hers. Unlike some people, Laren doesn’t think Jamie is weird for collecting paint samples as a hobby. No one really knows the significance of each paint sample collected. Jamie’s disinterest in storybooks soon changes after Laren shows her how enjoyable reading can be. Who knew going to the library could be so much fun? But her happiness is crushed when she overhears a conversation at Erica’s birthday party. “It’s a wonderful thought that every day has something to celebrate.” Sometimes we have to hear of another person’s unhappy experiences to appreciate what we have in our lives. These two girls had a good relationship and proved that age doesn’t matter. Millie Florence is a talented teen who wrote Honey Butter when she was thirteen years old. It’s very well written with a good theme and is a quick read. Sibling rivalry, hurtful taunts, friendships, a unique hobby of paint samples, love and laughter make Honey Butter a special book for the coming of age group. The chapter titles are names of Jamie’s paint samples that have special meaning to her. Millie Florence is a young author whose writing should be followed.
