Book of the Week: Dear Evan Hansen

Book of the Week: Dear Evan Hansen

Laci LaDuke, Book Critic/Obsessive Reader

Dear Evan Hansen is a wonderful story about life and the way we live it. Having originally been a Broadway Musical, it is now a novel and a movie, as of September 24th, 2021. Evan Hansen feels as if he is just waving through a window, as if he doesn’t fit in. A letter no one was supposed to see, a lie he never meant to tell causes Evan to finally feel as if he does belong. This heart-warming, yet heart-shattering story is amazing, and something everyone needs. Dear Evan Hansen has something for everyone, from music to pages of print. I recommend this to everyone. (The book follows the musical, even incorporating the humor and direct quotes)
