First off: reader caution. This deals heavily with suicide (by a young boy) and the effect in his family and school mates. It also has themes of mental health the difficulties young people experience.
So this novel is based on a musical, and from the reviews I’ve seen so far this is very different from the musical. I’m haven’t seen the musical. I started out feeling pretty shocked by what Evan did by not speaking out to Connor’s family that it was in fact Evan who’d written the letter and he and Connor hardly knew each other. But as his interactions with Connor’s family grow, you can see that he’s suffering too. He’s feeling lonely and isolated too. He’s feeling the pressures of school, family, his hormones and just life too. And it’s through the rather questionable acts that Evan does that brings Connor more a little alive to his family, which is what they need after you see just how estranged and hurt their family unit was. It’s not an easy read. Through the book, with Evan and Connor’s narrative, you learn just how lonely and troubled they both were/are, and how, in different circumstances they might actually have been friends. This also shows the impact of suicide on a community and hopefully will show that it’s ok to speak out if you’re struggling, and more important, you’re not alone.
Amazing book and would really recommend! I’d heard the music in Spotify and thought to read the book itself and it did not disappoint. I bought it again as a thank you present to one of my teachers as I thought she would enjoy it and she’s told me that so far, she thinks that it’s a great book!
5.0 out of 5 starsAn Amazing Book, A must read for anyone who has been to Secondary/High School.

Personally I'm not a bookworm so It's extremely rare I'll actually pick up a book. Dear Evan Hansen was an absolutely fantastic read and I definitely felt a rollercoaster of emotions reading it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who's ever experienced high school or secondary school education. You'll be able to relate to this book in some way or form.
