This is What Happy Looks Like
This is What Happy Looks Like

By: Jennifer E. Smith

Genre:  YA Romance fiction

Pages: 416

Published: 2013

Read: July

2 out of 5

CHEESY! As an adult reading this book, it reminded me of a fluffy romance novel for teens. Complete with a very unrealistic predictable plot, the dreamy protagonist, and conflicts that are resolved too quickly and smoothly. Worst of all, knowing it will end happily ever after.  I realize that many adult women enjoy this type of novel, therefore female teens may also enjoy this book and even fall in love with Graham.  I read and love a lot of YA novels, but believe some can only be appreciated if you are still a teen. This is definitely one of those.  For that reason, I understand why it is a Teens’ Top Ten nominee. With that being said, I feel there are many more quality love stories for teens published including The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.
