This unique combination of text and integrated art follows the journey of a dorky, quiet, artsy kid as he reinvents himself after moving to a new town. See the world through his journal as he makes new friends, tries to hide from his messy past, forgives the people who have hurt him most, and ultimately learns to face the world with a genuine smile.
From the Publisher:
Cute girls dig him. He has his own fan club

But he wasn't always this awesome. He used to be Mr. Comic Book, a resident of Lonelyland. So when he swtiched schools, he slapped on a grin and went from big nerd to big shot.

Meet Happyface. This is his journal.

This unique combination of text and fully integrated art follows the journey of a dorky, quiet, artsy kid as he reinvents himself after moving to a new town, where he's nicknamed Happyface. Peek in his journal and 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 messy past, forgives the people who have hurt him most, and ultimately learns to face the world with a genuine smile.
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.

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." 01/25/2010

"Emond tells the story via the teen's illustrated journal, authentically capturing his up-and-down emotions." 03/01/2010
