I am so excited to see a film adaptation of Happiness for Beginners! It’s one of my favorite books. The characters are so relatable . I’d REALLY love a sequel to see more of Helen and Jake’s next life chapter!
Hooray! Thank you! I’m excited to see it, too!! There *is* a little bit more about Helen and Jake in my book What You Wish For, in case you didn’t know! That’s a connected book–and they show up for a cameo! Also, if you haven’t read it, there’s a free short story about the night they met right here on this website! It’s called The Guy at the Wedding–and you can read it on that page, or you can also listen to me reading it as a audio story!!
i cannot wait for this film adaptation! Happiness for Beginners is my absolute favourite book in your collection :). Congratulations Katherine Center!
