Happyface by Stephen Emond

Ugh. I know this character was depressed by the miserable event that changed his life, but I found myself just not caring about him and wanting the story to wrap up. I did, however, like all the drawings that were part of the book-as it was his journal we were reading.

Nutshell review: kid has ok life. Then a new chapter starts and he’s living with just his mom in a depressing apartment and starting over at a new school. He takes the opportunity to recreate his personality and be a “happyface.” It’s clear though that it’s just a mask for whatever is going on with his family.
