Author: Eva Woods

Category: Romance

Recommended by: Wanda Clark, Okotoks Public Library adult fiction co-ordinator

Description: Thirty-five-year-old Annie Hebden is stuck in a rut until her bubbly new friend, Polly Leonard, challenges her to try a new way to be happy each day for 100 days. Annie's convinced it's impossible, but so is saying no to Polly. And on an unforgettable journey that will force her to open herself to new experiences—and perhaps even new love with the unlikeliest of men—Annie will slowly begin to realize that maybe, just maybe, there's still joy to be found in the world.

“Something like Happy is such a wonderful book dealing about several difficult subjects. The characters tug at your heart strings, and remind you that no matter your circumstances, there is still joy to be found in the little things if you let them.” ~ Wanda Clark
