Sunny Song's Big Summer Goals:
1) Make Rafael Kim my boyfriend (finally!)
2) Hit 100K followers (almost there…)
3) Have the best last summer of high school ever
Not on Sunny's list: accidentally filming a PG-13 cooking video that goes viral (#browniegate). Extremely not on her list: being shipped off to a digital detox farm camp in Iowa (IOWA??) for a whole month. She's traded in her WiFi connection for a butter churn, and if she wants any shot at growing her social media platform this summer, she'll need to find a way back online.
But between some unexpected friendships and an alarmingly cute farm boy, Sunny might be surprised by the connections she makes when she's forced to disconnect
This was a cute, fun read and was just the right book for the mood I was in when I read it back in March.
I really liked the idea of the detox camp for technology/social media/devices, but I also liked that Sunny came to understand what she got out of social media and that it wasn’t all unhealthy. There were a lot of fun subplots (the romance, the older campers who needed Sunny’s tech expertise, Sunny making new friends and discovering she had a nemesis) that kept things interesting and the story moving along.
Things wrapped up a little too quickly and perfectly, but overall this was a fun read and Sunny was funny and snarky and I liked her so much (and I am still laughing about #browniegate). This book was just what I needed to read at the right time.
