Bright SideRemains 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 smal First of all I get itTo all the people out there who say they don’t like these types of books books that make you hurt and feel and clutch your Kindle at 3 AM as tears blur your vision and you hope against hope that the character isn't headed towards what you think they're headed towards I get itLife is hard This world is a tough place Crappy things are happening out there things that break your heart on the evening news and sometimes it’s easier to just drift along and float above the clouds than to actually sink down deep and risk getting hurt There’s enough pain out there – why run towards right?But Bright Side is worth the pain In Kate and Keller Kim Holden has created two remarkable characters and after you’re drawn in through their banter and connection you do start to fear for the worst You start to fear that you’ll be that person hurting and feeling and clutching your tear stained Kindle as you pray that The Almighty Worst won't happen And when it does it feels less like facing a gust of wind on a winter day than getting swamped by a frozen wave in the dead of January And that's not fun For anyoneBut that’s what makes us human right? That’s what separates us from the rodents and the beasts and the swine isn't it? We are elegant creatures capable of depth and empathy and heartbreak who clutch Kindles and hurt and feel – especially at 3 AM Especially in the hands of Kim HoldenEpically done Kim
