This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E Smith
Release Date: April 2nd, 2013 by Poppy

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?

Reason for waiting:
Wow that is one long blurb lol!

My brother really liked You've Got Mail when we were kids. I didn't give it a try until recently. A YA version? Sounds interesting! I read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight earlier this year and I love Smith's writing! I'm hoping this new release (which is super far from now, argh) would be cute a little bit dark like TSPOLAFS was!

What are you waiting for this week?


  1. Hey, thanks for stopping by! I'm waiting for this one too. :D I'm a new follower!

  2. I'm so excited for this book! I loved TSPoLaFS so hoping this one will be just as good! I like the way the covers match too. Great pick :).

  3. The cover is cuteness and while I haven't read " The Probability... " yet I would definitely love to at some point:)

  4. Yay, this looks like another fun read from this author!
