Happy Monday! It's the week of Valentine's Day and what better way to kick off this week than by having Jennifer E Smith on the blog. I'm thrilled to be apart of Little Brown's tour for Jennifer's upcoming release This Is What Happy Looks Like (out April 2nd, 2013). Jennifer's debut The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (now out in paperback) was featured on my favorites list last year. I'm excited to have Jennifer on MM's to talk about her upcoming release.
For me, it’s easy to see the hurt beneath all that resentment, to understand that it comes from somewhere deeper. But then, I’m the one who invented her, so I suppose it’s a bit like how a parent with a really funny-looking kid can’t help thinking they’re beautiful. Oliver senses it too, though; he sees right to the heart of her, and it’s because of that – because of him – that she’s able to start moving forward again. Of course, I wish that all readers could see that too, but their frustration with her is also a sign that she’s three-dimensional enough to provoke that kind of feeling, and as long as they understand her more by the end of the book, then I feel like I’ve done my job. She might not be as immediately easy to love as some characters, but in my opinion, she’s definitely worth the wait. (And, of course, in the meantime, there’s always Oliver!)
THANK YOU Jennifer for being on the blog today!

If fate sent you an email, would you answer?
When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds.
Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?
