The Tony Award-winning co-creator of Dear Evan Hansen, Broadway’s 2017 Best Musical, presents his groundbreaking novel inspired by the show. A letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family's grief, and he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. Every day is amazing until everything is in danger of unraveling. 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.
