Title: More Happy Than Not
Author: Adam Silvera:
Amazon Synopsis:In the months after his father’s suicide, it’s been tough for 16-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
This is the first book I read from Adam Silvera and I absolutely loved his writing style and the way he told the story. More Happy Than Not told the story of less-than-happy Aaron Soto and how his life was affected after his dad committed suicide and they can barely live without his mother working two jobs. I loved the twists. the descriptions of everything including the Leteo Institute and all the side characters
