“[Camilla Gibb is] a gifted storyteller . . . Her story is touching, human, alive. . . . It is beautifully written, brave and sincere. Enjoy.” —The Vancouver Sun
“This Is Happy is a powerful testament to what people can overcome and permission for what people can’t.” —Toronto Star
“This Is Happy has a rawness and power that’s hard to resist. . . . this engaging memoir comes from a gifted writer.” —NOW (Toronto)
