Book Review: Gus

Title Gus
Series Bright Side, book 2
Author Kim Holden
Release Date May 19, 2015

The journey that began in top-rated, best-selling Bright Side, continues ...

This is the story of Gus.
Losing himself.
Finding himself.
And healing along the way.

“ … but the honest-to-God truth is I don’t even know how to function anymore. Bright Side wasn’t only my best friend; she was like my other half ... the other half of my brain, the other half of my conscience, the other half of my sense of humor, the other half of my creativity, the other half of my heart. How do you go back to doing what you did before, when half of you is gone forever?”

Review

Bright Side ended up being a heartrending story that will easily take place as one of my favorites on 2016 (and beyond). Gus was different. I fell in love with Gus in Bright Side, so having his story was really special for me. Though there was sadness surrounding Kate in the book, the overall message of healing and love were much more prominent.

I really love Kim Holden's writing. I'm so glad that I decided to read her books. Her stories flow so smoothly, with no lulls or boring parts. I can't wait to read Franco whenever it comes out and I'll definitely be checking out her other work.
