This Is What Happy Looks Like

Author:  Jennifer E. Smith
Year: 2013
Publisher:  Little, Brown and Company
Pages:  404

Goodreads Synopsis:

If fate sent you an email, would you answer?
When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds. 
Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?

This is a fun little book. It's very reminiscent of You've Got Mail. It has that light and fun flavor to it.  It doesn't have that extra magic that The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight does but it was still fun and well worth the read. I spent a Saturday afternoon sitting in the sun on the back porch reading this book and it was a perfect afternoon. I will definitely be reading everything by Jennifer E. Smith in the future.
