Have a Nice Day

Julie Halpern

Feiwel & Friends




Anna Bloom has just come home from a three-week stay in a mental hospital. She feels...okay. It's time to get back to some sort of normal life, whatever that means. She has to go back to school, where teachers and friends are dying to know what happened to her, but are too afraid to ask. And Anna is dying to know what's going on back at the hospital with her crush, Justin, but is too afraid to ask. Meanwhile, Anna's parents aren't getting along, and she wonders if she's the cause of her family's troubles.

WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO WEAR? I should be thrilled that everything I own is at least one size too big, which, let's be honest, is three sizes bigger than I'd like to be. Still pretty much a major accomplishment, seeing as I wasn't even trying...


Praise for Have a Nice Day

“...laugh-out-loud funny and immensely intelligent.” —Kirkus, starred review

“Anna’s sarcastic voice is sharp as ever, and those who followed her through treatment will be anxious—and pleased.” —Booklist
