  About The Book

If fate sent you an email, would you answer?

Perfect strangers Graham Larkin and Ellie O'Neill meet -- albeit virtually -- when Graham accidentally sends Ellie an email about his pet pig, Wilbur. In the tradition of romantic movies like "You've Got Mail" and "Sleepless in Seattle," the two 17-year-olds strike up an email relationship from opposite sides of the country and don't even know each other's first names, using instead their anonymous email monikers, GDL824@yahoo.com and EONeill22@yahoo.com.

Through a series of funny and poignant messages, Graham and Ellie make a true connection. However, revealing only the most insignificant details about their day-to-day lives, Graham doesn't know the major secret hidden in Ellie's family tree, and Ellie is innocently unaware that Graham is actually a world-famous teen actor living in Los Angeles.

When Graham finds out that Ellie lives in picturesque Henley, Maine, perfect for the location of his latest film, 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's mom want her to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?

Just as they did in The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, the hands of fate intervene in wondrous ways in This is What Happy Looks Like, a YA novel that delivers on high-concept romance and starred-review worthy prose.
