    Original post at One More PageThe bright yellow cover called me the moment I entered the YA section of Fully Booked Eastwood It was bright, and the smiley made an interesting cover, and when I took a peek inside, I saw that it was a bookwith drawings But what really convinced me to buy is when I removed the half dust jacket and saw this This certainly got me very, very curious How can a book entitled Happyface have a sad face inside Happyface is the journal of a boy who has been christened Happyface by the girl he likes because of his sense of humor and his happy demeanor Happyface is a high school sopho, and a shy, artistic kid who tries to reinvent himself when he moves to a new town The journal contains the account of the school year, from June to March, as he tries to make friends, ask out the girl he liked and be the happy person that everyone expects him to be.This isn t exactly a comic book, but it s also not a plain novel I like reading journal type novels because I like first person accounts, and I m a journal keeper myself The drawings in this book are fascinating and entertaining at the same time Look I m not big on graphics or photos in a novel I like words However, Happyface...

    Also posted at Guy Gone Geek I cannot believe that I will also be writing that line Yay Despite being a loyal partisan of social networking sites where you can post about every single update of your life, I still do keep a journal I ve been keeping it for about 4 years now and it is still far from being halfway filled I guess that shows how rare I write on it Here s my journal next to Happyface s journal Are reviews with photos the new in thing here in Goodreads Apparently, yes I feel slightly embarrassed with that photo for my journal is a flyspeck compared to Happyface s and just the mere act of placing it next to his is somehow a heinous crime Happyface s handwriting is computer font like of course it is, but let s just assume that it is a real journal while mine will require you to acquire the service of a symbologist to decipher it before you can read it Reason number two is that he is truly blessed with the talent of art while I, however er, let s not talk about it Above all, I don t have a story as interesting and as complicated as Happyface s He has a story a lot of young people can relate to and learn from.Happyface is a socially awkward guy who is secretly in love with his bombshell best fri...

    Happyface is a great book It is a chill and fast read It relates to my life and many ways I think other people will also relate to this book The storyline is great in this book It may seem random at times, but the book is a written in like a diary ...

    This book was a very depressing story about the darkness of high school and all its tragic problems I feel like it made high school almost too dark and forgot to mention some really great moments that I m sure the main character must have felt at least once in his entire four years at his school I think that even in the toughest of times you can still find some like points about it, or else the reader is just reading some depressed kids thoughts and personally that makes for not the most interesting story I m the kind of person that when I read a boo...

    Originally posted atPINOYPETERPAN.EVERYBODY NEEDS A HAPPYFACE SOMETIMES A review of Happyface by Stephen Emond First, I wanna say thanks to Tina for letting me borrow this great book hugz I ve read Happyface just when I needed it most It reminded me of three things 1 that everybody could start anew There s nothing wrong with wanting to move on and leave the past behind You could always put a clean slate in front of you 2 Another is putting a smile on your face could really make a big difference That even though you had a rough time at home, you could always smile at the office or at school and worry about it later It s just like letting the good vibe in because you could not face the whole day by thinking about the things that caused you to frown 3 And finally, to not forget to put your game face on I m not saying that you need to pretend to be someone else but it is sometimes advisable to not let them know you thoroughly Life is a game, and in a game you don t let your opponents know what cards you hold or your plans.I like how Emond makes the novel so graphic The illustration makes it feels like somehow I m reading comics without the balloons The story is a bit typical but it has a sense of authenticity in it It reaches the reader in a personal level because it was written in a way that the character was confiding to his journal The story was also plausible because Emond didn t mak...

    Turn those frowns upside down, and remember to just keep swimming, I mean smiling I was first attracted to Happyface when I saw the bright yellow cover calling my name from the library shelf I was like a moth to a smiling, yellow flame When I opened it up to take a peak inside, I was rather surprised The journal format is nothing new when it comes to a coming of age Young Adult novel but Happyface takes this format to an entirely new level, as our main character Happyface expresses his life in both art and text Through sketches, cartoons, comic strips, and illustrations in various styles, Happyface tells a multi medium story This adds to the book in a way that it would just not be complete without it.The font used throughout the journal for all of the text is something that takes a little getting used to It s a little much when looking at a full page of this font, but paired along with the art and empty space it s pretty readable.Now, our main character, nicknamed Happyface, is going through some major life changes New town, new school, family issues, girl issues, I Am So Lonely issues but decides with this new start he s going to start a project The Happyface project, to just keep smiling, to improve himself, and to distract himself from his ever mounting personal problems by finally getting out there and making some friends, and maybe even getting a girlfriend Oh, Happyface, how to mend a br...

    This is the diary of Happyface, a not so happy as everyone thinks he is teenager In the beginning he s kind of quiet and awkward and spends most of his time with his sketchbook, drawing the world and his best friend Chloe who is smart, beautiful, and unobtainable Everything changes when Happyface s parents split up and he and his mom end up living in a small apartment and Happyface goes to a new school He has the chance to reinvent himself as someone else, and he starts right away grinning all the time no matter how he s feeling on the inside This seems to work for him Soon he s got a whole circle of friends and other random people wanting to know him because he has this mystique of cool He s the class clown he s the life of the party He s really in love with his friend Gretchen who is smart, beautiful, and unobtainable see a pattern here Even in his diary Happyface manages to keep a lot of his life a secret Only gradually does it come out that Chloe whom Happyface suddenly stops mentioning at all went out with his older brother, Everett, behind Happyface s back And that they were in the car together when Everett crashed and died And that Happyface s dad had some kind of breakdown and wound up in r...

    This book took me, beat me to a bloody emotional pulp, and left me on the side of the road.Sometimes a book does that and it s great Sometimes the book is Happyface and it s a really terrible time.So our protagonist, known to us only as Happyface, moves with his mother away from his broken family into a different portion of the city after a family tragedy He then treats everyone around him horribly, can t grasp the social cues necessary to fix the problem, and hits rock bottom Without giving away the resolution but this is a YA book, so , things seem to spiral completely out of control and then the book resolves And yeah.I won t lie a portion of my discomfort with this was my identification with Happyface from time to time Not really pleasant Thankfully, as terrible as I was to people once upon a time, I was never like this, and I think that s where the book ultimately failed for me the consequences exist...
