Synopsis

It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.



It's been sixty-five days since the accident that ripped Juniper's world apart. Life without her kind, beautiful, vibrant big sister Camilla is a colder, darker place.



Until she discovers the letter. The letter Camie wrote, but never got to send. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of the accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.



But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card contains Juniper's own secret: a memory she can't let anyone else find out.



An unforgettable story of love, loss, mistakes and memories.

Julie Israel did a lot of telling stories before she ever figured out how to write them: around the campfire, in grade school parodies, at meals where she had to account for the peas that mysteriously vanished from her plate, but did not end up in her stomach. She didn't try writing a book until high school, and didn't finish one until after she had graduated college, taught English in Japan, tutored, written freelance, begun volunteering, and completed her first secret mission as a spy. Okay, she was never a spy. She's still telling tales. It's one of her favourite things to do from her native Portland, Oregon, where she really does enjoy making art, learning, and sometimes vegetables.

Customer Reviews

I first heard about this book, coincidentally, on the day it released. I saw the US cover with the confetti and it had me intrigued. Then one day, as I was doing my weekly (okay, daily) Amazon sweeps for new books releasing in India and great deals on slightly older ones, I came across the pre-order button for Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index and I was OVERJOYED to see that it was being releases here – and with an EVEN prettier UK cover! I dove into this book a few days ago, and it’s been a rollercoaster. There was so much to feel, so much happiness and friendship and love and a little but that annoyed me too, but I’ll take it with the flow. My Thoughts: 1. First things first, THAT COVER IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. It’s a simple watercolour design with these small indented spray marks that you can only see when you hold and I ABSOLUTELY love it. It’s simple and GORGEOUS. 2. The second thing I LOVED about this book was Brand Sayers. He’s the love interest (if me squealing on Goodreads didn’t already inform you of that) and he’s a “bad boy” with a sarcastic side, one who adores gummy bears, is the broody lead singer of a band and calls Juniper “Lemon”. I absolutely loved scenes with him in them and it’s been a while since I liked a contemporary boy THIS much! 3. I also loved the support system of friends that Juniper built around herself to support both them and her. I loved Kody, Angela, Sponge, Nate (And Brand of course) 4. I think I’m a little upset with the fact that Juniper’s talk with the best friend who stopped talking to her right after her sister died wasn’t actually a scene in the book but mentioned as an afterthought. I would have loved to have seen them talk it out, considering their history but it just felt so… rushed. 5. Another thing I loved was Juniper’s method of thinking that everyone around her was YOU, the man that her sister was secretly in love with. It got tedious after a while, though, and after looking for YOU for a whole book, I feel like we didn’t get the conclusion we deserved. It was left as an open ending with nobody to pin all the love on. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO GET CLOSURE? 6. The thing I LOVED the most about this book was Juniper’s art and how she used it to remember her sister. I’m in a design course in college and so this resonated with me and I loved it SO SO MUCH. Would I recommend this book? Yes. It has it’s downsides but a) IT’S SO PRETTY TO LOOK AT and b) it has some PRETTY great moments too. A tale on friendship, love and moving on after the person you thought the world of is lost to you forever. 3.5 stars.
