    • I wondered for a long time how I would review this wonderful novel, and after lots of slaving over the decision, I have concluded that:We are Miguel supporters first and people second
    • I love all things Dear Evan Hansen! This book is amazing!
    • This wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't good and I think this is going to be another it's just me not you situation.I couldn't get into this one at all. I understand where the author was trying to go, but it was all so boring. I didn't connect to the characters like I had hoped and honestly the story was so flat. I skimmed the last half of the book and I don't think I missed anything by doing so which isn't a good thing. I think there are better books out there that deal with the same issues in this one. Again it's probably just me and since I am not the target for this story I fully believe it's just me.
    • Finished listening to this today! 📱💙👕It was fascinating to see how Val Emmich, Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul took Dear Evan Hansen the musical and adapted/expanded it into a novel. 💡For devoted Fansens, like me, it stays true to the characters and voices I know and love from the musical. 🎶It also gives us the opportunity to dive deeper into who they are and even introduces a new one, that really worked for me. ☺️I think it also works as a stand alone story, for those not familiar with the broadway show. 📘I highly recommend it, especially for teens/young adults, those who care about and/or are parenting teens/young adults, as well as those who have loved ones who died by suicide. I fit into both categories, which is what drew me to this story in the first place.✌🏼
    • Well received gift.
