Carrie Hope Fletcher is one of my all time favourite YouTubers. She is so down to earth and is so awesome (plus she loves Disney). Carrie has some great advice on her channel and genuinely feels like a bit of a big sister, so when I found out back in 2015 that she had written an advice book, I was 100% down.
I honestly could not put it down. The advice in it was brilliant. When my Mum asked me what I thought about it, I said that it would’ve been perfect for me when I was 13-17, especially when I was going through some friendship troubles as Carrie also struggled with friends at school. She also talks about the internet and body issues, which honestly would have been perfect for me when I was a young teenager.
The book is split into ‘Acts’ and in each act there are chapters (or I like to think of them as scenes in the acts!). All the chapters were in the theme of the act that it was in. Each Act is a different theme of advice that for teens would be super useful and I honestly advise that every teenager should read.
Essentially repeating what I just said, the advice in this was incredible and every teenager needs to read this as I feel like it talks about problems in teen society, such as the Internet and bullying. All of which is stuff that needs to be sorted as all of these things are scary stuff to a teenager. For a teenager who is dealing with any of the issues in this book who are struggling to talk to people, it might comfort them that their favourite YouTuber (or any YouTuber, its nice to see that they don’t all have perfect lives!) has also dealt with issues that everyone goes through and it might not make them feel alone.
Overall, I honestly believe this is one of the best ‘YouTuber’ books that I have read or even possibly ever! It’s not like some of the others where it is just about their life (even though this is in a way), this book is also gives teens helpful hints and tips to try and deal with situations that life throws at us.
I wish I had had this book when I was a young teenager dealing with these kinds of issues.
