Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"As one of the most popular influencers on social media, Mia Bell has lived her life online for years. With her celebrity dog and gorgeous fiancé, she is planning the ultimate virtual wedding--expensive, elaborate, and entirely paid for by sponsors. But off-camera, her world is far from picture-perfect. After being jilted by her fiancé and faking her nuptials to please her sponsors, Mia finally has had enough. She heaves her phone off a cliff, ready to live--and maybe find love-- offline for a change"--Dust jacket flap.

    *Starred Review* To her hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, Mia Bell has the perfect life. She's engaged to a handsome photographer, about to be married at a picturesque mountain inn, and has a steady stream of income-generating sponsorships in exchange for publicity on her Pictey channel. But like so many things online, reality is far uglier. Her fiancé broke up with her days before their wedding, and Mia has to break the news to her family, her followers, and the companies paying her to wear their dress, carry their flowers, and so on. When her channel is taken over by a well-meaning Pictey employee, Mia's reliance on technology is thrown into sharp relief. Harms (The Overdue Life of Amy Byler, 2019) examines both sides of the ever-growing technology debate, especially the pros and cons of life as an influencer. 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.
