March’s book is Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Finney.

Mad Honey (2002) is a novel co-written by Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Finney Boylan. The story follows the case of 18-year-old Asher Fields, who is charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Lily Campanello. Although initially convinced of his innocence, his mother, Olivia McAfee, can’t help being reminded of the similarities between Asher and her abusive ex-husband, Asher’s father. Through the story’s characters, Mad Honey explores themes of violence and abuse in relationships as well as gender expression and identity.

Jodi Picoult is a New York Times bestselling author of numerous books, some of which have been adapted for film, and has received numerous awards, including the New England Bookseller Award for Fiction and the Sarah Josepha Hale Award. Jennifer Finney Botlan is a writer, professor, and transgender activist. In addition to authoring bestselling books, she’s a contributing writer for the New York Times opinion page and has served on the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination (GLAAD) board of directors.
