Welcome to the JUNIPER LEMON’S HAPPINESS INDEX blog tour! Today I’ll be sharing a playlist for this novel and presenting a giveaway! First, here’s a bit about the book:
Length: 320 pages
It’s been sixty-five days since the accident that killed Juniper’s sister, and ripped Juniper’s world apart.
Then she finds the love letter: written by Camilla on the day of the accident, addressed mysteriously to “You,” but never sent. Desperate to learn You’s identity and deliver the message, Juniper starts to investigate.
Until she loses something. A card from her Happiness Index: a ritual started by sunny Camie for logging positives each day. It’s what’s been holding Juniper together since her death – but a lost card only widens the hole she left behind. And this particular card contains Juniper’s own dark secret: a memory she can’t let anyone else find out.
The search for You and her card take Juniper to even less expected places, and as she connects with those whose secrets she upturns in the effort, she may just find the means to make peace with her own.
This is a smart, funny, poignant book guaranteed to make you laugh and cry – and maybe even take notes.
In this playlist, I compiled songs that had some bittersweet and despondent emotions that sort of relate to how Juniper feels as a result of her sister’s death. There’s also a few upbeat songs that relate to the humor in this novel. Let me know what you think!!
