Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
From Goodreads: 
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?


I adored The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and this sounds like it will be just as cute and fun and wonderful. "You've Got Mail" and "Sleepless in Seattle" in a YA novel? YES PLEASE.

Just imagine how cute it will look next to The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight on my shelf! :)
