Waiting on Wednesday #64

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

  
Summary via Goodreads:
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?

Just as they did in The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, the hands of fate intervene in wondrous ways in this YA novel that delivers on high concept romance in lush and thoughtful prose.
 Why am I looking forward to This Is What Happy Looks Like? Because I loved Jennifer's first book, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and I have high hopes for this one too!

This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith is published by Poppy, an imprint at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, and its expected publication date is April 2, 2013.

What are you waiting on this week?

  2. Fabulous choice! I haven't read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, but I've been wanting to read it for ages! I definitely am going to pick up This Is What Happy Looks Like at some point because my boyfriend and I initially met online! So this is kind of close to home for me. :P
