Review of Bright Side by Kim Holden

Bright Side (Bright Side, #1)Bright Side by Kim Holden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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. 

 Bright Side was a book that I felt deep in my heart, it took me awhile to get into it but I will be thinking about it long after I have read it. It made me look at my own life and left me wondering what would I do? It brought tears to my eyes and left me emotionally drained but honestly I would read it all over again and if I did, I know it would have the same affect on me. I can’t say too much without ruining it for other readers and I don’t want to do that. Just know that this book will definitely tug at your heart and not let go of it even when you are done reading it.

   I did fall in love with the characters in this book, all of them. They were a fun group to read about and to spend time with. Keller was so sweet and I couldn’t help but love him right from the very beginning. Kate is very strong & independent and everybody could learn something from her. Not to mention she was just so much fun I wanted to be friends with her! The relationship between her and her best friend Gus is exceptional and everyone needs an unconditional friendship like that! The story was beautifully written and the Author did a wonderful job at making me feel all the emotions of the story.

Purchase the book: Bright Side
