Cover Crush (6): This Is What Happy Looks Like

Cover Crush is a new feature here at Booklopedia to highlight the covers that I'm currently absolutely in love with.  I know that there are multiple memes or features out there that feature covers, but I thought that it would be cool if Booklopedia had their own feature and that it should be about something that I love about books: their covers.

Today, I have a major crush on the cover for This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith!

This Is What Happy Looks Like
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?
This is an adorable sounding book with an equally adorable cover!  It definitely seems like a romantic novel because of the couple holding hands on a boat.  There's no doubt about that.  I love the pop of yellow in the sun rays and "happy" that contrasts with the black and white of everything else.  I also think it's cute that they drew in some sun rays around the couple.  The cartoonish font for the title also adds to the adorable cover and really pops out.  This cover is almost as cute as the cover of Smith's previous novel The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight!  Look for this adorable cover on shelves on April 2nd of next year!

What do you think of the cover?
