Dear Evan Hansen by Val EmmichFrom the shows creators comes the groundbreaking novel inspired by the Broadway smash hit Dear Evan Hansen.
Dear Evan Hansen,
Todays going to be an amazing day and heres why...
When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a familys 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 isnt invisible anymore--even to the girl of his dreams. And Connor Murphys parents, with their beautiful home on the other side of town, 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 swirl of anger, regret, and confusion, he knows that what hes doing cant be right, but if hes helping people, how wrong can it be?
No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. Hes confident. Hes a viral phenomenon. Every day is amazing. Until everything is in danger of unraveling and 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.

A good musical need only be good the first time you see it. An excellent one must remain excellent through many visits and incarnations. Halfway through its third year at the Music Box Theater on Broadway , with just two of its original cast members still on board, it keeps revealing new charm, new sadness, new truth. New talent, too: Four of the actors now playing its five teenage characters are making Broadway debuts; two of them are actual teenagers. The most significant change comes with the recasting of Evan himself, a role that requires ridiculous emotional and physical stamina. When he took over the role, in January, he was even younger than the character.
