Happyface by Stephen Emond

The main character never reveals his name. He is referred to as Happyface in the story. Happyface really liked this one girl, Chloe but was afraid to tell her. Then one day he found out that she had been going out with his brother. He found this out when they got in a car crash and his brother died. Happyface’s father was a alcoholic. He and his mother moved away to the town nearby. In that high school, he changed and became “popular”. There, he met a girl, Gretchen, that he really liked. But she didn’t feel the same way. Through Happyface’s high school year, he learns to forgive and to grow as a person. This was a great book to read. It was set up in journal format and the author drew pictures to make it more alive and real. It was an entertaining story and the pictures made me laugh.
