I am reviewing a copy of Selfies through Brazos Press and Netgalley:
We live in a generation of selfies, anyone with a smart phone or tablet can post a selfie on social media from just about anywhere in the world, but do we truly understand the power of a selfie? It can capture a happy moment, a silly moment but there are times they can breed controversy.

The Smiling Selfie in Auschwitz was a way for Breanna to connect with her deceased Father, but after it was posted online outrage ensued. Was a smiling Selfie in Auschwitz disrespectful, or distasteful.

There are times that Selfies can be downright dangerous, stopping to take a selfie while crossing a busy street is never a good idea.

Selfies can be good or bad, it's up to us how we use them.

I give Selfies five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
