The Other Side of Lost Reviews

I believe this is my first Jessi Kirby novel, and it was sweet, short, and emotional. This novel follows Mari as she attempts to hike the daunting 211 miles of the John Muir trail. Along the way, she deals with the death of her cousin Bri and meets new friends during her trip.
Mari is an internet star, and she posts about how her life isn’t as picturesque as it seems. As a result, she receives a lot of negative attention and decides to hike the John Muir ...more
While reading this book I was constantly on the lookout for a love interest. I was anxious whether of not he's going to even be in the book since the theme doesn't necessarily scream "I NEED A MAN" and then a certain guy appeared in the background and I groaned out loud. Romance wasn't the main focus of the story and I still think The Other Side of Lost would've been better without any trace of it.

Mari has been a digital influencer with a big number of followers to her Instagram account, but at what cost had it all come? She's faking a relationship with another popular Instagram user, who won't even care to give h ...more
Great summer read! Quite thought provoking in multiple ways, especially if you’re dealing with grief. And a fantastic group of friends that I would love to meet in real life. :)

Mari Turner has the perfect life - at least online - but the price of perfection comes with a high price. Mari turned to the online community to find solace after her parents divorce. Social media platforms offered her a chance to reinvent herself as anyone she wanted to be. In the online world, she could be happy, healthy, and inspiring even when her actual reality was crumbling around her. So many of us hide behind ...more
