The Bright Side of Going Dark

We rated this book:


Mia is a big-time social media influencer. Going from a small-time yoga instructor to having over a million followers, Mia has made quite a name for herself. Her next adventure will be live-streaming her wedding for all her followers to enjoy. But two days before the big day, her fiancé sends her a text to call off the wedding. With big corporate sponsorships riding on this event, what’s a girl to do?

Meanwhile, Paige works for a social media company and reviews flagged content. She misses a flag, from her own sister, that completely changes the trajectory of her life, as well as Mia’s life too.

This book gives the impression of being a lighthearted summer read, but it is decidedly not that in all the best ways. This book has heart, substance, and a dark side. It provides plenty of food for thought about grief, anxiety, and the reality of social media in our lives. This would make a powerful book discussion title. This is both an entertaining, fast-paced read, and an insightful work that delivers an emotional punch.
