3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


Face it-being a young adult in the digital era is one of the hardest things to be.

Well, maybe there are harder things in life...but being an adult is difficult!

So Grace Helbig has written a guide that's perfect for anyone who is faced with the daunting task of becoming an adult.

Infused with her trademark saucy, sweet, and funny voice, Grace's Guideis a tongue-in-cheek handbook for millennials, encompassing everything a young or new (or regular or old) adult needs to know, from surviving a breakup to recovering from a hangover.

Beautifully illustrated and full-colour, Grace's Guidefeatures interactive elements and exclusive stories from Grace's own misadventures-like losing her virginity solely because her date took her to a Macaroni Grill-and many other hilarious lessons she learned the hard way.

Amusing and unexpectedly educational, this refreshing and colourful guide proves that becoming an adult doesn't necessarily mean you have to grow up.

I've been a fan of Grace Helbig for a while now. I first discovered her when she and her friend Michelle were making videos together. They always managed to cheer me up on my darkest days. Even then Grace was also making solo videos, but for some reason at the time I didn't watch those as often. I have no idea why.Well, Grace's style of humor is now in book form, a mix of genuine life advice and hilarity that will make anyone feel good. If you enjoy Grace's videos, you'll enjoy this book. Along with advice on dating, making friends, decorating as an adult, some unique cooking recipes, managing a digital life, and even how to get over break-ups and hangovers; Grace also provides a series of photos and stills from some of her videos. It's easy to tell she had fun putting this book together.One of the things I love about Grace, and this comes through in Grace's Guide, is her general attitude. A phrase that gets repeated several times here is "make it fun." If you could boil down Grace's life philosophy into one sentence, I think that would be it. This whole book epitomizes "make it fun," so do yourself and favor and pick up a copy for yourself or that friend who could use a good chuckle. Definitely worth it.

This book is only worth reading if you're fifteen and the greatest conflict you face during the day is the size of your bangs. Fairly immature without the benefit of being funny.

Entertaining memoir with hilarious tips about growing up. I was new to Grace's work, but I really enjoyed this one.
