More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
"This book...... Wow, wow, wow. Words can't even describe how good it was! It was funny...... Yet really heartbreaking. The book had me smiling at the end, but also destroyed me. This book was beyond amazing, and it's not a budding romance novel li..." Read more of this review »

A fun, perfect summer read about teens in an indie rock band and their search for love. Fun and fast paced and fluffy with a core. I liked it a lot.

Jamie and 2 other people liked elissa's review of There Will Be Lies:
There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake
