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."
From the Publisher
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.
