Ryan's February 2015 pick 
 
So here's the thing about Grace Helbig - yes, she's hilarious and charming and wonderful, but she's also smart and has solid advice for people trying to figure out their lives. I picked up this book because I wanted to support Grace, and I read it, knowing there would be some laughs and curious to learn more about her as a human. I was not expecting, however, to learn about myself and find myself nodding as I agreed with her very astute, very sincere advice and life tips. I found myself relating to her, empathizing with her, and even sympathizing at times. Yes, Grace is funny, but she's also human, and a beautiful one at that.

Description


#1 New York Times Bestseller

By the host of The Grace Helbig Show on E! and the it’sGrace YouTube channel, comedian Grace Helbig offers an irreverent and illustrated guide to life for anyone faced with the challenge of growing up.

Infused with her trademark saucy, sweet, and funny voice, Grace’s Guide is a tongue-in-cheek handbook for millennials, encompassing everything a young or new (or regular or old) adult needs to know, from how to live online to landing a job to surviving a breakup to decorating a first apartment, and much more. Charmingly illustrated, Grace’s Guide features full-color photos, interactive worksheets, and exclusive stories from Grace’s own misadventures, including her disastrous interview for NBC’s Page Program, her lifelong struggles with anxiety, the first (and also last) time she entered a beauty pageant, meeting her first boyfriend at a high school Latin convention, and many other hilarious lessons she learned the hard way.

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

Praise For…


"Grace Helbig is my spirit animal and I would gladly take her to lunch at Macaroni Grill so we could talk Latin conventions, first love, and hangover remedies. I wouldn't even expect her to put out."–Jenny Han, author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

“Grace Helbig is one of the funniest, most creative beings on this damn planet and if you don't read her book and enjoy the crap out of it you simply hate wonderful things.”

"Grace Helbig is a sparkly vessel of wit and fun!"
— Andy Cohen, author of Most Talkative

“Grace’s genius is to make you laugh even when faced with something as mundane (and terrifying) as a job interview. And her honesty about her struggles with anxiety is particularly inspiring. I’ve been an adult longer than Grace, but I was doing it wrong. After reading this book, I bought six dozen sticks of deodorant, put my underwear outside my front door, and rolled around on the floor in a blanket taco. Thanks, Grace!”
— Maureen Johnson, author of 13 Little Blue Envelopes
