Bright Side – Kim Holden

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.

Note from the author: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is recommended for mature audiences.

My Review: Bright Side was highly recommended by members of my book club as a book guaranteed to make me cry. Challenge accepted

This wonderful love story features an utterly incredible main character Kate who is starting her first year at University in Minnesota leaving her best friend Gus behind in San Diego.

Following Kate’s journey from making friends, getting a part-time job and settling into her new life she didn’t plan on falling head over heels with Keller who works at the local coffee shop.

Kate’s incredibly positive and caring attitude about life and friends really moved me. This book is full of heartwarming and heartbreaking moments and if more people had a little of Kate’s outlook on life the world would be a better place.

Did I cry? Epically Dude!!!
