For the Teenager in All of Us

25 Jan

 I found Simple Plan on my way out of adolescence and I really wish I’d heard of them earlier.

Still, I suppose those teen-feelings never fully go away. They kind of creep up every so often.

This is for those days. Enjoy!

Happyface by Stephen Emond

Because, yes, it’s a young adult novel with sketches strewn throughout, but gosh-darn-it, it made me pause.

Because I stayed up late to finish reading it.

Because the protagonist is never named and is the only character drawn stick-figurish and I thought that was cool.

Because it made me want to write.

Because of the tone of the book.

Because it went from cute book to powerful and it was a great read during both parts.
