Get Happy by Mary Amato

I’m a fan of Get Happy, in which we follow sixteen-year old Minerva’s quest to buy herself the only gift she really wanted from her birthday (a ukelele) but which her mom is totally ignorant of, to navigate a complicated possible relationship with the father she thought was a deadbeat and his annoyingly perfect stepdaughter, to survive a job in which she has to dress up as a mermaid and perform at little kids’ birthday parties, and to explore a sweetly budding romance. I liked Minerva’s development as a character and think her story is worth reading.

You can find Get Happy here on Amazon or at your favorite bookseller.
