Book Review for “Scout’s Honor”
Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite
Scout’s Honor: A Novel by Dori Ann Dupré is the story of Scout Webb, who we literally see grow in front of our eyes. When the novel starts, Scout is 14 years old. A tomboy to boot, she really likes to play basketball and has a huge crush on Brother Doug, a lifeguard on Camp Judah. Her life revolves around playing basketball with her best friend and enjoying her time at camp. However, the summer of 1983 will be the summer that changes her life forever. One disaster and Scout will never be the same. We will be taken on a journey with Scout as she becomes a single mother and closes on her middle age years, when she will ask herself: why did her life change? What changed her? And whose fault was that?
This is a women’s fiction novel that leaves an imprint on your mind. I loved the fact that we got to see Scout grow up right in front of our eyes, in every sense of the words. We got to see her mature and learn that life is much more than just a basketball game. Her character growth was immense. The development was very good. Everything was written perfectly. I loved the fact that this novel gave us insight into the minds of real people and why do we do things that hurt other people. We never intend to, but we still do. Dupré did an amazing job with the novel. A beautiful cover too.”
