...feisty Sunny/Sun-Hee Song is such an amazing character that I was laughing out loud by page 10 and wanting to follow her sassy online persona for real ... Sunny Song Will Never Be Famous was an absolute joy to read. I completely demolished it one sitting. Sunny's adventures are endlessly entertaining and full of fabulous dialogue that will keep you laughing ... I appreciate that Park does not approach social media as the enemy in this book, and for that reason I can heartily recommend it to any young folks who are particularly web-savvy ... I also recommend this title to any fans of Kim's Convenience because the snappy dialogue and Sunny's quirky commentary are similarly as fabulous.
This charming and relatable novel takes a look at the impact social media has on teens while examining the pressure teens feel in a viral world ... In the midst of addressing how overwhelming social media can be for kids, Park also tells a heartwarming story of a young adult trying to separate herself from her online persona ... Sunny will easily endear herself to many readers.
Park smartly and honestly weaves Sunny’s nuanced experience as a Korean American into a story that is ultimately about human identity in our advanced age of social networking. Valuable lessons learned and a cute romance are wrapped up with a sentimental ending ... Quirky and insightful.
