More on happy endings

I took a bunch of boys to see Inside Out as part of Graham's 12th birthday party.  After the movie, as we were driving home in a borrowed minivan, I heard one of the boys behind me ask "why do stories always have happy endings?"  The boy seated next to him responded:  "I read a book one time that didn't have a happy ending. It sucked."

So, there you go.  That's where we are at age 11-12. I have shared before my growing if not unconditional predilection for the happy ones, so while I'm not 100% down with where the kid was coming from, I still get it.
