We all know that growing up is hard to do, and sometimes the only thing that makes it better are the reassuring words of someone who has walked that bumpy road just a few steps ahead of you and somehow ended up as a fully-functioning adult. Carrie Hope Fletcher is that person.* Thanks to her phenomenally popular YouTube videos, Carrie has become an 'honorary big sister' to hundreds of thousands of young people who turn to her for advice, friendship and, most of all, the knowledge that things will get better.
Carrie has created a safe and positive space for young people to connect and share their hopes and concerns online, and now she will share her most personal thoughts and experiences in her first book, ALL I KNOW NOW. Part memoir, part advice guide, it will include Carrie's thoughts on some of the topics she's asked about most regularly: bullying, body image, relationships and perhaps the scariest question of all: what does the future hold for me? With warmth, wit and a sprinkling of hard-won wisdom, Carrie will provide the essential tools for growing up gracefully . . . most of the time.
*Although she did recently post a video about how to pee in a onesie. So the definition of 'adult' is a bit flexible here . . .
I love watching Carrie's videos and this book was like her videos but in book form! Carrie has written such an insightful and helpful book whilst still being entertaining and I was very happy with this book.
Carrie's writing is very informal and friendly in this book which I really liked because this entire book just screamed CARRIE. Although you would expect that from a nonfiction book about her life but it felt as if Carrie was just writing down what she had said in one of her videos. The writing in this book made it easy to fly through and the art added in here was such a nice touch.
As for content, this book had such an array of entertaining stories and lessons. I never got bored whilst reading this book and although nonfiction books and memoirs are almost never my cup of tea and I have nothing to compare this book to, I would say that this may be one of the best memoirs out there because I feel like it was done correctly and this is how I would picture it. Carrie had such a realistic way in this book as she not only teaches us what shes learn but she is modest about it and admits to her mistakes.
Overall I really enjoyed this book so I gave it
That's all for this review, I hope you enjoyed and I'll see you again soon!
