about this item
Love doesn’t always work out the way fairy tales tell us it should in this sweet romance about learning how to move on from a broken heart.
Everything was supposed to be perfect. Alyssa has a job she loves, working as Cinderella at her favorite theme park; a fantastic group of friends; and a boyfriend who will no longer be long–distance. But as the summer progresses, her prince becomes less charming and more distant, and Alyssa's perfect summer falls apart.
Forced to acknowledge that life is not always a fairy tale, Alyssa starts working to pull her herself back together. Fortunately, she doesn't have to do it alone. With her friend Miller's support, she's determined to prove that she's more than just a pretty princess. And with his help, maybe she's finally ready for something better than dreams… Maybe she's ready for something real.
From Karole Cozzo, author of How to Keep Rolling After a Fall and How to Say I Love You Out Loud, comes The Truth About Happily Ever After, a charming, uplifting young adult novel for the princess in all of us.
Praise for Karole Cozzo:
"Cozzo has created a well-written YA novel featuring a main character with a disability... Pax and Nikki’s love story is natural and gradual and feels authentic to the teen experience."—School Library Journal on How To Keep Rolling After a Fall
“A budding romance with family drama and a feel-good ending.” —School Library Journal on How to Say I Love You Out Loud
"A wonderful, heartbreaking book which will stay with you.” —Danika Stone, author of All the Feels, on How to Keep Rolling After a Fall
“How to Keep Rolling After a Fall's got everything I look for in contemporary YA romance. It’s a perfect mash-up of the thoughtful family dynamic of a Sarah Dessen story, the complex friendships of an Emery Lord novel, and the sexy edginess of a Miranda Kenneally book.” —Katy Upperman, author of Kissing Max Holden
