Review

"Refreshingly, each character is a true-to-life individual with complicated emotions and unique voices. A surprisingly easy read containing a little romance, a lot of personal growth, and an honest look at weighty topics." --Kirkus Reviews

"Witty, lively, and au courant, The Bright Side of Going Dark will make readers think twice about refreshing Instagram for the tenth time today. Tackling thornier questions of mental health and the toll of constant comparison, this will appeal to fans of Meg Wolitzer and Elin Hilderbrand, who'll adore the intertwining lives of Mia, her followers, and those they encounter IRL." --Booklist (starred review)

"The Bright Side of Going Dark is about so much more than the moral quandary of screen time. It's about grief and loss and anxiety. It's about mothers and daughters--more anxiety--and about second and third chances. The Bright Side of Going Dark is as dark as it is bright, [and] full of humanity: mobile devices, warts, and all." --BookTrib

"Even casual users knows how absurd and unrealistic social media can be--yet keep logging on day after day. Kelly Harms takes this dichotomy to new heights in a clever and unputdownable story of two women whose so-called online lives collide IRL. I laughed, I cried, I came away from the experience with a newfound appreciation for life--which is to say The Bright Side of Going Dark is everything I'd hope for in a Kelly Harms novel, and more. I loved every page." --Camille Pagán, bestselling author of I'm Fine and Neither Are You

"Kelly Harms has once again knocked it out of the park with this charming, funny, topical novel about an online influencer who undergoes an unexpected transformation. I honestly had to put my whole life on hold while I read it--laughing and sighing through the clever twists and turns of this plot. Who among us hasn't wondered what it takes to be a person who posts photographs fifty times a day? You'll fall in love with @Mia&Mike as well as the whole cast of wonderful characters. A novel that shines with surprise--and will make you want to turn off your phone and go play with your dog." --Maddie Dawson, Washington Post bestselling author of Matchmaking for Beginners
