Waiting on Wednesday (15)


This week I am waiting for........
This Is What Happy Looks Like
This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
Release Date: April 2, 2013
If fate sent you an email, would you answer?

In This is What Happy Looks Like, Jennifer E. Smith's new YA novel, perfect strangers Graham Larkin and Ellie O'Neill meet—albeit virtually—when Graham accidentally sends Ellie an email about his pet pig, Wilbur. In the tradition of romantic movies like "You've Got Mail" and "Sleepless in Seattle," the two 17-year-olds strike up an email relationship, even though they live on opposite sides of the country and don't even know each other's first names.

Through a series of funny and poignant messages, Graham and Ellie make a true connection, sharing intimate details about their lives, hopes and fears. But they don't tell each other everything; Graham doesn't know the major secret hidden in Ellie's family tree, and Ellie is innocently unaware that Graham is actually a world-famous teen actor living in Los Angeles.

When the location for the shoot of Graham's new film falls through, he sees an opportunity to take their relationship from online to in-person, managing to get the production relocated to picturesque Henley, Maine, where Ellie lives. But can a star as famous as Graham have a real relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie's mom want her to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?

You might be familiar with Jennifer's other novel, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, which is also another YA contemporary. I WANT TO READ THIS BOOK SO BAD! Come on! Read the blurb!! It sounds EPIC. I loved TSPoLaFS and I am positive that Jennifer will not disappoint with this book. Damn, I can't believe it's coming out in April.

Leave a link to your WoW post in the comments and I will check it out!

Have a great week,
Sam :D
