Waterstones Says

Based on the hit stage musical, Emmich's novelisation of the heartwarming coming-of-age tale finds anxious, awkward Evan embraced by the wealthy Murphy family - who mistakenly believe that he was their dead son's closest friend.

Read the book before you see the film, out September 2021!

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 draws high school senior Evan Hansen into the Murphy 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.

Suddenly, Evan isn't invisible anymore. And Connor's wealthy parents have taken him in like he was their own, desperate to know more about their enigmatic son from his 'closest friend'.

As Evan gets pulled deeper into their family, he knows that what he's doing may not be right, but if he's helping people, how wrong can it be?

No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose.

He's confident. He's a viral phenomenon. Every day is amazing. But when everything is in danger of unravelling, he comes face to face with his greatest obstacle: himself.

A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation.

“wickedly funny”

Wickedly funny and sometimes morally bereft but in a good way. I really enjoyed this though I've never seen the musical, nor did I really know anything about it. So the plot was a complete surprise for me. I... More

“Moved me to tears”

I received a reading copy in exchange for an honest review.

This book was wonderful. It's about the awfulness of high school and being alone in a crowd and paralyzed by 'what ifs'.

“a lesson in self-acceptance - like the musical”

I was delighted to receive my review copy of Val Emmich’s novel ‘Dear Evan Hansen’. I loved the soundtrack to the musical, and I loved this book. The narrative flips between Evan Hansen and Connor, which was a bit of... More
