So Much for Happy
Edward McGill, author
IN THE YEAR 2020, twelve-year-old Christopher Michael lives with his father and grandfather in a place called UnHappy, where struggling Red and Blue people are segregated from their entitled White neighbors, who thrive on the other side of an invisible wall in a world called Happy. In spite of their different races, social class, gender and age, all yearn to relocate to a place called Hope, a state of mind with infinite possibilities. In this gripping and dystopic debut novel, author E.P. McGill teaches young adult readers about what truly divides us, and what it ultimately takes to find our true colors.
