The UK book fairies celebrated their 4th day of Book Fairy Advent with a special treat – a novel based on a hit broadway and west end show!
We loved hiding this little gem in London’s west end, as well as other cities around the UK! We hope the finders will enjoy reading the story regardless of whether or not they’ve seen the musical! Did you find a treat on your trip around the shops this Christmas?
About the book:
Dear Evan Hansen, Today’s going to be an amazing day and here’s why…
When a letter that was never meant to be seen draws high school senior Evan Hansen into the Murphy family’s grief over the loss of their son, he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell. That the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend. Suddenly, Evan isn’t invisible anymore. And Connor’s wealthy parents have taken him in like he was their own, desperate to know more about their enigmatic son from his ‘closest friend’. As Evan gets pulled deeper into their family, he knows that what he’s doing may not be right, but if he’s helping people, how wrong can it be?
No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. He’s confident. He’s a viral phenomenon. Every day is amazing. But when everything is in danger of unravelling, he comes face to face with his greatest obstacle: himself. A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation.
