Review: More Happy Than Not
I was given the opportunity to read and review a wonderful book by Adam Silvera for my friend's blog.
I love this book.
Silvera has an ability to capture moments which allow readers to enjoy the strangeness of the setting--a near-future Bronx--while relishing some familiarity. He hits the right notes to render Aaron’s summer of self-discovery with subtlety. Things like the scent of summer rain or freshly cut grass, More Happy Than Not will, for some, evoke distant memories, and more importantly for the majority, feelings of hope, yearning, and loss.
