Review: This Is What Happy Looks Like

 ★★★★★

'' He knew how the story was supposed to go. Boy meets girl. Girl likes boy. Boy kisses girl. And then?''

Because of one missing '2' in an email address, Ellie gets an weird email from a stranger asking to take his pig, Wilbur, out. That little typo starts something big. 
Graham, the super hot film star from California, was the one sending the email to Ellie. Now determined to find the girl, he suggests Ellie's home town as a set location and gets his wish. He's going to see her, but there's a catch. She doesn't know he's coming and he doesn't know what she looks like. 

The story of Ellie and Graham is predictable. There are no huge surprises. But that, at least my opinion, makes it even better. A perfect summer fling. 

This Is What Happy Looks Like is about finding what happy looks like to you. What makes people happy? Is it sunsets or sunrises? Is it ends or beginnings that make people happy. Could it be both? 

The perfect beach book is light and fast to read. It may make you cry from happiness. At least that's what I did... 

I didn't know that in such a short period of time (liar!), I could get attached to characters so much, but after finishing I realised. It's the details. The little things you find out when you get to know a person. Do they like sherbet, flip-flops, or sticking their toes in the water. The details matter and they make this book even more lovable. 

I could say, that after reading, you know what happy looks like.
