This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith:
If fate sent you an email, would you answer? When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds.
Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?
Level of Originality: 5. Girl sees through the glamour of the movie star to find the real him.....is the theme of 1 out of every 2 Disney Channel original series. Or at least that is how I think of all Disney Channel movies.
Level of Absurdity: 9. It is absurd that movie stars can just choose any old location for wild goose chases for love. But then again, I am not a movie star. Perhaps this is a real thing.Level of
Level of Harry Potter-ness: 3. This book fell flat for me. I couldn't get behind the romance or the challenges the characters faced. I did, however, liked the mixed-media of the texts/emails that fit into the start of each chapter. Overall, I much prefer Smith's The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight --click for my review!
