“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”

J.D. Salinger

Scout's Honor by Dori Ann Dupré

2016 Readers' Favorite International Book Awards - Bronze Medalist, Southern Fiction

The main character Scout is so well developed that you actually become part of her as you turn the pages. The story is of ones life and the ever developing learning curve that we all learn as we grow. Every page that you turn becomes part of the emotions that we all experience in one way or another.

Scout's Honor reminded of the Fitzgerald quote "there are many different loves in this world, but never the same love twice." It's such a true sentiment and that came out in Dori's writing. Different people left different impacts on Scout's life and whether they were good or bad, they led her to the place she was supposed to end up. Scout herself was such a true, raw, real protagonist. Really enjoyed this one!

-Leigh Raines, Author

This book is written that well that sometimes I had to remind myself it is fiction. It takes you through Scouts life and through the eyes of those close to her.

Kristy W. - Amazon Reviewer

When I can finish a book in two days it is only because I can't put it down. TRUST ME! With five kids, five companies and five pets I rarely get to read a book.....and usually end up putting it aside when life calls. I will tell you "Scout's Honor" had me engrossed from page one. I couldn't put it down.
