 Dear Evan Hansen
by Val Emmich
From the show's creators comes the groundbreaking novel inspired by the Broadway smash hit Dear Evan Hansen.
 
Dear Evan Hansen,
Today's going to be an amazing day and here's why...
When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family's 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.

I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book.
