it was amazing

Actually written as a YA, it has become a bestselling Broadway play!

"Today is going to be an amazing day and here is why..."
Why do we feel alone in the world? What causes someone to do something out of character for the same of belonging?
We have:
A letter never meant to be seen
A boy's chance to be accepted
A family's grief
A lie
Never Even Hanson has told a whopper! And as we know "oh what a tangled web we weave.. When first we practice to deceive"!
A young boy is dead and his family is grief stricken. In comes Evan Hansen!I
He tells the lie. He, he declares was the boy's best friend.
Wow! Suddenly he is accepted! But as with all lies, he begins to believe himself. He is sucked into emotions, more lies and confusion.
His one problem, HIMSELF!
A simple lie leads to complicated truths.
This is a delicious coming of age story with all the angst, entanglements, longing and trouble that go along with it!
There is both humour and sadness.
We live in a society which makes things all the more complex. Instant connectivity couples with profound loneliness!
A well written story, funny and sad, touching at the bruised places in the reader's heart. Beautiful words and ugly situations. A perfect plot and such real and fallible characters you cannot help but love them! A triumph of wit, real life pride and satire! A MUST READ!
