What to Read if You Like the Musical Dear Evan Hansen, by Nicholas Mitchel
Broadway week continues with a list of YA reads that fans of the musical Dear Evan Hansen may like.
“You will be found” is the foundation that the musical Dear Evan Hansen is built on, holding out a hand to anyone that feels like the world is collapsing in around them. It is a show that explores heartbreaking circumstances but also tells an uplifting story of healing and connection. I was instantly drawn to this show from my own experiences and feel that many people may have also had feelings similar to Evan’s but never felt like they could voice them. This is a musical that connects to that and to let you know that you aren’t alone.
This great read-alike list was created by and graciously shared with us all by Nicholas Mitchel, a teen librarian at White Oak Library-Crest Hill Branch.
