A theme park princess must put her life back together after her happily ever after falls apart in The Truth About Happily Ever After, a contemporary YA romance from Karole Cozzo, author of How to Keep Rolling After a Fall and How to Say I Love You Out Loud.

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.

Guest Post: Playlist for The Truth About Happily Ever After....

The night my main characters attend a Coldplay concert is pivotal for their relationship, and throughout the writing of the story, I’ve been amazed at how many Coldplay songs capture how Alyssa and Miller come to feel about each other. And then just recently, “Something Just Like This” came out and I was pretty much jumping up and down because it’s basically the entire theme of the book, right there in lyrical perfection!

The following soundtrack, yes, comprised entirely of Coldplay, follows along with Alyssa’s journey from the end of Part I of the book through the end of Part II.


“The lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees”

2-Fix You

“High up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
If you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you”

3-Hymn For the Weekend

“Oh, angel sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up”

4-Adventure of a Lifetime

“I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart beneath my skin
Oh, I can feel my heart beating
'Cause you make me feel
Like I'm alive again”

5-A Sky Full of Stars

“I don't care, go on and tear me apart
I don't care if you do, ooh
'Cause in a sky, 'cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you”


“Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
You know you know I love you so
You know I love you so”

7-Something Just Like This

“She said, where'd you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I'm not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can miss”
