A Perfect Summer Read | Hello Sunshine by Laura Dave

“When how you appear to the world is aligned with who you believe you are, you will understand what it means to be free.” Mel Robbins

The protagonists of Hello Sunshine aren’t the typical characters easy to root for. Even though the main characters are far from perfect, flaws abound in this drama, still they have a thought-provoking story to tell, and Laura Dave, author of The First Husband, The Divorce Party, London Is The Best City In America, and the bestseller Eight Hundred Grapes, makes it engaging with her compelling writing style.


Sunshine Mackenzie, the main character, presents herself as living the perfect life, and falling from grace afterward. The core of the story manages the idea of a “curated life” as the main issue here, but I don’t think that’s the cause of Sunshine Mackenzie’s problems. Her life is not so much “scrupulously assembled” and more of “unscrupulously assembled.”

This is a thought-provoking story, light on the angst, and a compelling writing style.

A perfect summer read.

Hello Sunshine will be adapted into a major motion picture. Author Laura Dave will adapt it with her husband, Oscar-winning Spotlight co-writer Josh Singer. Producers: Amy Pascal, and Rachel O’Connor.
