Adam Silvera knows how to destroy a reader.
What is happiness? How can we find happiness? Does changing ourselves for being accepted by others can lead us to real happiness? Does acceptance is that important in our lives? These are the questions that will pop up in your mind while reading ‘More happy than not’ and the story will answer them. Not in the way that you think.
“More Happy than Not” by Adam Silvera tells the story of Aaron Soto, a kid who is looking for happiness after his dad’s suicide. He thinks he can forced himself to be happy drowning and scarred himself with happy faces but reality is so much different than what he thinks. Adam Silvera knows how to destroy a reader: don’t let all the happy faces at the start of every single chapter fools you — this book will kill you. But then you will be happy about it?! (Sorry, I could never stop with my Harry Potter references).
