Book Review: Bright Side

Bright Side by Kim Holden: Secrets.
Everyone has one.
Some are bigger than others.
And when secrets are revealed,
Some will heal you ...
And some will end you.

Kate Sedgwick’s life has been anything but typical. She’s endured hardship and tragedy, but throughout it all she remains happy and optimistic (there’s a reason her best friend Gus calls her Bright Side). Kate is strong-willed, funny, smart, and musically gifted. She’s also never believed in love. So when Kate leaves San Diego to attend college in the small town of Grant, Minnesota, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with Keller Banks.

They both feel it.
But they each have a reason to fight it.
They each have a secret.

And when secrets are revealed,
Some will heal you …
And some will end you.

Lori's thoughts: I finished this book early today but had to wait until I could wrap my head around things before I wrote the review. There are books that you read and love and then there are books that you read, love, and they stay with you for a long time. I think the books that stick with me the longest are the ones that make me FEEL. This is one of those books. It was definitely a character driven story for me. I know some people stopped reading it before they got to the end because they found it lacking in excitement. I promise you, if you are one of those people, you need to go back to it right now and finish reading it. You won't regret it. I never found myself bored. The characters were so wonderfully diverse and lovable, I couldn't stop reading ... even knowing my heart was going to be broken by the time I flipped the last page. So many times, the writing had me tearing up--even when I wasn't supposed to. :) Bright Side, Kate, is the kind of person you wish you had in your life ... or better yet, want to be more like. Gus? What can I say? Keller? Every. Single. Character. Loved them all. I didn't want to say goodbye. And now, I have another book to look forward to when Gus has his own story to tell. #EPIC #DUDE.
