Praise
"The illustrations range from comics to more fleshed-out drawings. Just like Happyface's writing, they can be whimsical, thoughtful, boyishly sarcastic, off-the-cuff, or achingly beautiful."
"Emond tells the story via the teen's illustrated journal, authentically capturing his up-and-down emotions."

Annotation A regular boy with regular interests--gaming, comics, and art-Happyface decides to completely revamp himself when he suddenly moves to a new school, thus earning the nickname. In journal format, peppered throughout with expressive drawings and comics, his story hints at a terrible event in the past. Trying to start afresh, he makes new friends, a new crush, and struggles with what happened to his family. Thought-provoking, personal, and humorous.
Editors Note 2 Just put on a happy face!Enter Happyface's journal and get a peek into the life of a shy, artistic boy who decides to reinvent himself as a happy-go-lucky guy after he moves to a new town. See the world through his hilariously self-deprecating eyes as he learns to shed his comic-book-loving, computer-game playing ways. Join him as he makes new friends, tries to hide from his past, and ultimately learns to face the world with a genuine smile. With a fresh and funny combination of text and fully integrated art, Happyface is an original storytelling experience.
