Funny, warm, and moving, Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index is a contemporary YA novel about loss, how deeply we can know others, and making our own happiness; perfect for fans of Sara Zarr and Jandy Nelson’s The Sky Is Everywhere.

Sixty-five days after the death of her older sister, sixteen-year-old Juniper Lemon discovers the break-up letter addressed to “You” Camilla wrote the day she died. Juni is shocked—she knew nothing of this You, and now the gaping hole in her life that was her sister feels that much bigger. She’s determined to uncover the identity of You and deliver the letter. Maybe that would help fill the hole, even if only a bit.

But what Juniper doesn’t expect is that in searching for You she will unearth other notes and secrets—and that may be just what she needs to sort out her own mess.

This was an okay young adult book. Juniper is grieving for her older sister, Camilla, who was killed in a car accident. Juniper's friendships have changed, her home-life has changed, she is angry she is keeping a secret.
The secret was written on an index card which Juniper misplaced at school, so this story is about Juniper looking for this index card. She has also found a letter in Camilla's bag to a mysterious person who obviously played a big part in Camilla's life while she was alive. Juniper wants to deliver this letter.
Juniper's searches lead to her making new friends, but will this make her happy?
