really liked it
bookshelves: adult, contemporary, uk-fiction

From beginning to end, this was a joy to read. Acting Happy manages to deal with some big and important topics in a light-hearted and entertaining way – and without ever making fun of them. The writing is "un-literary" in the best possible way: written in the first person in Clara's down-to-earth and chatty everywoman voice.

The plot is well structured and closely tied to the characters' (particularly Clara's) development and it all came to a head and wrapped up beautifully. All in all, a great debut novel from Jo Lobato. Already looking forward to her second one!
