Review: Happily Ever Afters - Elise Bryant

Happily Ever Afters

Review: Happily Ever Afters - Elise Bryant - January 2021

The cover drew me towards this book and I have also been enjoying reading more diverse authors and authors of color ( without it sounding racist). The other thing that drew me to this book was the laptop and the fact that the main character Tessa was a writer herself. Tessa and her family have just moved to a new town for a new beginning and on one of their first days, Tessa's older brother Miles does a prank involving the neighbors and pizza. This leads Tessa to meet Sam who she is about to learn is also about to start the new school that Tessa is. Chrysalis Academy is a school dedicated to fostering arts from drama, writing, cooking, fashion. Tessa has always had a love for writing but is about to learn that with great writing also comes writers' block and she has it the worst she has ever experienced. Now Tessa is stuck in a school where they rely on her writing to get her grades up, but she has nothing to show for it. Her best friend from her old town tells her that she needs a romance of her own and that will spark her writing back alive. The thing is though that Tessa has her eyes set on Nico who is not exactly available and can't see that maybe her Mr. Right was in front of her all the time with her new neighbor Sam. What will happen though when Tessa is so focused on getting her writing groove back that she doesn't realize that her life, in reality, is about to come crashing down around her? Happily Ever Afters had geeky characters, love triangles, and also covered diversity and disabilities as Tessa's older brother had special needs. I would have gathered maybe Autism, but it wasn't talked about in-depth during the story - just his episodes, tantrums, etc.
