My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thank you to NetGalley, Soho Press and Soho Teen for the ARC, More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera. Aaron Soto is a character you will not soon forget. He is honest, curious, and searching for happiness in his Bronx neighborhood that is constricting and judgmental. It is Aaron’s thoughts, words, and actions that speak deeply about the kind of guy Aaron desperately wants to be in his neighborhood and the wider world around him. It is through a series of relationships, decisions, and the futuristic Leteo Institute that the reader discovers Aaron is struggling with being gay in a world that won’t accept him. I wept for Aaron’s tragedies and hoped that he would become “more happy than not.” Silvera writes a serious,engaging novel that will hook teens and then have them question if there really should be a cure for whatever one wants to forget. I highly recommend this book for the teen and adult reader.
