Amazon Summary:

In the months after his father’s suicide, it’s been tough for sixteen-year-old Aaron Soto to find happiness again—but he’s still gunning for it. With the support of his girlfriend Genevieve and his overworked mom, he’s slowly remembering what that might feel like. But grief and the smile-shaped scar on his wrist prevent him from forgetting completely. 

When Genevieve leaves for a couple of weeks, Aaron spends all his time hanging out with this new guy, Thomas. Aaron’s crew notices, and they’re not exactly thrilled. But Aaron can’t deny the happiness Thomas brings or how Thomas makes him feel safe from himself, despite the tensions their friendship is stirring with his girlfriend and friends. Since Aaron can’t stay away from Thomas or turn off his newfound feelings for him, he considers turning to the Leteo Institute’s revolutionary memory-alteration procedure to straighten himself out, even if it means forgetting who he truly is. 

Why does happiness have to be so hard?


My Thoughts:

More Happy Than Not is a great book! The characters are detailed so you feel like you know them. There’s lots of action and twists and turns to the story. Aaron, the main character has had some pretty tough moments in his life. He has a girlfriend name Genevive. When Genevive leaves for camp, Aaron meets a boy named Thomas who he spends time with a lot. What happens next? I’m not going to spoil anything! This is definitely worth the read.


That’s a wrap! Have you read More Happy Than Not? Let me know what your thoughts are on the book.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews!
