A boy learns to hide from his family's tragic past by putting on a happy face - perfect for readers who have outgrown Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
This is a story about a dorky teenage boy who reinvents himself after moving to a new town. He slaps on a grin, smiles through his awkwardness and becomes... HAPPYFACE!
Enter Happyface's journal and get a peek into the life of a shy, artistic boy as he evolves from class nerd to class clown. 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.
With its candid portrayal of dysfunctional family issues, low self-esteem, and dealing with loss, Happyface offers a refreshingly authentic teen boy voice through a unique and funny combination of text and fully integrated art.
