I am thrilled with BookSparks summer reading challenge selections, and so thankful for all the books I've received this year. Last week I boarded a flight to Los Angeles at 8 am with multiple books in tow. My plan was to sleep for the duration of the flight before a bachelorette weekend. Shortly before take off I was immersed in this story, and two hours later, I was finished and desperately wanting more. 'Hello, Sunshine' is the story of Sunshine Mackenzie, a culinary celebrity, who built her fame and fortune on a disintegrating pile of lies. What I liked most about this story was its relevance. Social media has become a platform in which you can build a facade, highlighting the 'flawless' and 'effortless' way we go about life. What's missing is the vulnerability and honesty. This story shines a light on Sunshine's life after she gets hacked, as she scrambles to find out who and why. It's rare to find a book that's honest, emotional, and refreshing, that focuses on repairing relationships. This thought-provoking novel is at the top of my list for our book club's September pick. I can't wait to hear what you think!
