    5 stars

    I LOVED More Happy Than Not. I am not typically a fan of contemporary, but the sci-fi twist to this novel really drew me in. More Happy Than Not tells the story of Aaron, a New York City teen who is gay, and living in a community where he knows that he will not be accepted the way he is. Enter the Leteo Institute, a company that promises to erase painful memories so people can move forward. Aaron has led a hard life, and survived multiple traumatic experiences, and he therefore decides that if he can just forget that he is gay, life would be so much easier. Let's talk about the plot twist in this book for a moment. HOLY. COW. It was like a plot twist within a plot twist and it totally threw me for a loop. From about the halfway point of the book straight through to the end, I didn't stop crying. I was just a big puddle of tears. AND THEN THE ENDING. What are you trying to do to me, Adam? I thought we were friends? Why'd you have to go breaking my heart like that? The ending was beautifully written, but it tore my heart to pieces and I am still recovering. I think it is going to be a while before I am ready to pick up another cry-worthy book - I'm still too vulnerable right now. What a poignant message this book sends. It takes the notion that being gay is a thing that can be "cured" and throws it right back in our faces in such a beautiful way. It shows us that no matter what you do, you are who you are, and that's ok. This book brings LGBTQ issues to light in particular, but I can see this message affecting people in all different walks of life; those suffering with depression, mental health issues, disabilities of any kind - to a certain degree, everyone has felt at some point that everything would be better if only this was different, or that could be fixed. More Happy Than Not shows us that there is always something to smile about and someone who loves us just the way we are.

    More happy than not

    I picked up this book after loving they both die at the end. Adam Silvera is worlds away from what I normally read, but I absolutely love his books. Would definetely reccomend.

    Just one opinion...

    I have given the book 5 stars because it's what I feel it deserves. I'm a romance reader, I've read plenty of them...this one was different. The twist in this book threw me, I totally didn't see it coming. I won't spoil it for anyone who is considering buying it, I will recommend you prepare yourself for the emotional rollercoaster you will be on. I read other reviews for this book after I read it, I think reviews are very personal and should be taken with that in mind (as I hope you do with this). I loved the book, but it made me sad for reasons I won't go into because I don't want to spoil it for other readers. You will laugh and you most certainly will cry.

    Be Happy With Yourself

    It's unfortunate that so many in the LGBTQ community grow up feeling that there is something wrong with their feelings, but we are faced with the evidence of those feelings every day. I remember my own feelings growing up especially after my first same-sex experience in high school. There were no role models, and no supports available to me at that time, and yes I prayed to God to take away those feelings. Unlike Aaron l didn't seek outside help to ‘change’ who l was. I just buried my feelings and desires deep down. Being able to remove those attractions would have been the easy way out, but accepting them and being honest about them has made me more happy than not. I look forward to the day when society will no longer make being different difficult and our LGBTQ youth can grow up knowing that there's nothing wrong with them.
