This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer Smith: 250+ Book Giveaway! (USA/CAN)

Tuesday, March 11, 2014
When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds. 

Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and 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 want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?

    the small town part

  1. I like that Ellie wants to stay out of the lime light at all costs and is not "Star Crazed".

  1. I like that the relationship started from correspondence and they knew nothing about each other and that is about to change.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    I sounds like a book that you could imagine yourself in. It also kind of reminds me of a book that I read a couple of times in junior high, so the familiarity calls to me.
