This is What Happy Looks Like
Author: Jennifer E. Smith
Summary: *spoiler-free* This book explains the relationship of a famous TV star and a regular town girl. It starts wit these two teenagers who made a email mistake and they some how communicate through the internet daily. They start talking they don’t know their names. They just talk about their life. They think that it is only between the internet until Graham (the TV star) comes to Ellie’s hometown to shoot a movie. He knows that Ellie lives there so he just can’t wait to see her. Once they start to actually get to know each other there is a bunch of family drama, ex-girlfriends, and paparazzi involved, when these two teenagers just want to have a normal relationship
My Review: *spoiler-free* I was expecting a lot from this book. I absolutely loved Jennifer’s other book The Probability at Love at First Sight, and I was hoping I would love it just as much as that book. It didn’t exceed my expectations. The two characters didn’t communicate at all through-out this entire book. They only really started talking right after the problem became big. Not to mention Ellie was trying to create Drama when there really didn’t need to be any drama. Just go out with him for pete’s sake! They were really giving me anxiety. It is a problem that they didn’t even try to communicate with the others on how they really felt for each other. It just didn’t give me a point in continuing reading it. (even though I did for the sake of this review) The only thing that I actually liked what the whoopi pie situation. That was actually really cute. Overall it was a big downer. I loved all of Jennifer E. Smith’s book and this one didn’t really scream “amazing!” to me. *spoiler-filled* The only thing that I just could not imagine actually happening was at the beginning when Graham mistakenly asked out Ellie’s friend and not her. I mean if you actually know the girl and you can just imagine her you might at least recognize how she acted and you should know that the girl wasn’t Ellie. That was just driving me crazy just reading. Like seriously! If you talk with her for a couple months you should know better and at least get her name before you ask her out. even though Ellie’s name tag was on the girl’s shirt.
