Publisher's Summary

This is the story of Gus losing himself, finding himself, and healing along the way. "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?"

Gus... Oh Gus.

There are truly no words to describe how beautiful this story is. This book will stay in your heart forever. I truly loved every minute of Gus. Life doesn't always go as planned and heartache does exist. Reading the journey of Gus finding peace and love was truly inspirational. This book makes you reflect and appreciate life. Always live life to the fullest. Tomorrow is promised to no one.

The audible narration by Lidia Dornet and Alex Kydd is ONE of the BEST audios I've ever heard. Alex Kydd was all things Gus and brought him to life in my ears.

Forever in my Top Five.

Stories like this is why I love to read

This was the perfect book at the perfect moment that I needed to listen to it. We are all have our up and down days, I've had that going on for the last two months and this book was the perfect balm.

Gus. What an amazing guy. I felt his sorrow and despair right through to my bones. His devastation upset me. He is struggling to deal with the loss of his best friend, whom he loved with everything he is. I was pulled into his sorrow with him.

Then Scout came into his life. I love who he became when he was around her. Their relationship grew very slowly into this cute, sweet friendship and eventually into an all consuming beautiful love.

There is so much of Kate in this story in that you can feel/see how much her being in Gus' life has influenced who he is and how he overcomes adversity. How he sees the world now with 'Bright Side' glasses on.

This story was heart warming and beautiful. I cried, laughed and felt overwhelming happiness. This series has left a lasting impact on me as a person.

This is why I love to read.

Totally epic

If you loved "Bright Side" then you've got to read this book and fall for Gus. It breaks your heart when he is grieving the loss of Bright Side but it's a wonderful journey to see him pull through and find his epic.

loved this!!!

where do I start! This book is EPIC! I laughed and cried and felt every emotion along with the characters. I loved the narrators. Lidia Dornet is amazing. I loved her while listening to Brightside too but Kate and Scouts characters are completely different and I thought she nailed both of them. Off to read Franco now!!!
