This Is What Happy Looks Like

General YA Fiction

VG/A  Smith, Jennifer E.  This is What Happy Looks Like.  Poppy, 2013.  416p.  978-0316212823.  17.99.

When Ellie responds to an email sent to her on accident, she has no idea that she has started a witty correspondence with Graham, a 17-year-old movie star. Graham loves the anonymity with Ellie since the rest of his life is under a microscope. So when given the opportunity, Graham opts to shoot his next movie in Ellie’s small, seaside Maine town so he can finally meet her. Ellie can’t believe that Graham has been her pen pal for the past few months, but she has family secrets of her own and the constant paparazzi are too much for her and her mother to handle. This book is the epitome of a teen summer read; it’s a sweet, romantic story with no sex or bad language. It’s what all teen girls daydream about…falling in love with and being swept off your feet by a handsome celebrity. Swoon worthy. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
