Blurb:



It’s been four years since twenty-year-old Jessica Hayes has been home, but when she discovers her father is dying, she must return to her hometown in South Carolina and face her past. Jessica thought patching up her relationship with her father would be her biggest challenge, but when she runs into Ryan Dawson—the catalyst of all her problems—she wonders if coming home was a mistake.

Finished my rereading in the Dutch Edition. I seem to have forgotten so much about these awesome earlier books.
Looking forward to reading the next.

“Bits have unique properties, then, that we can use to our advantage: they’re super-small, super-fast, easily acquired and created and copied and shared in near-infinite quantity, protected from the ravages of time, and free from the limitations of distance and space. In practice, though, bits reveal several paradoxes: they’re weightless, but they weigh us down; they don’t take up any space, but they always seem to pile up; they’re created in an instant, but they can last forever; they move quickly, but they can waste our time.”
Mark Hurst, Bit Literacy: Productivity in the Age of Information and E-mail Overload

“It’s far too rarely stated that the technology industry is not in the business of making people productive. It is only in the business of selling more technology.”
Mark Hurst, Bit Literacy: Productivity in the Age of Information and E-mail Overload

“The overload makes users less productive and more stressed; thus, there’s a need for some solution. Passively ignoring the problem won’t work, since bits are still heavy, even if we pretend not to notice.”
Mark Hurst, Bit Literacy: Productivity in the Age of Information and E-mail Overload

“Bit literacy means letting the bits go; anything else perpetuates the problem.”
Mark Hurst, Bit Literacy: Productivity in the Age of Information and E-mail Overload
