New YA: October 26-November 1.
Get Happy, by Mary Amato:
In a lot of ways, Mary Amato's Get Happy reads like a pretty light, somewhat run-of-the-mill story about friendship, the beginnings of independence, and first love. While the teen characters all read quite a bit younger than 16—except for the job at Get Happy and her freedom in running around Chicago, I could have easily imagined Minerva as a 12-year-old—it's a warm, comfortable piece of contemporary fiction.
Here's what made it a standout for me.
