Bright Side by 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.


I don’t even know where to start with this…

Bright Side broke me!
Literally broke me in to a million pieces – in a good way, of course! – I’ve never had a book stick in my mind or heart ever. Until this.

I couldn’t even think about reading anything else. It took me about two weeks to pick up another book and even that was a struggle to concentrate on something else.

The life of Kate Sedgwick ‘Bright Side’ involved living life to the fullest, loving with your whole heart and not caring about what anybody else thinks, oh, and being a coffee addict 😉

This book is full of everything. Love, laughter, heartbreak, secrecy, you name it and it’s in there. It’s written in the PoV of a young girl and I think it comes across really well and relatable. Everyone in life goes through some kind of struggle, myself included but reading this book made me think about things in a different perspective. It’s a highly emotional read but it is one I would extremely recommend!!
