Book Jacket Summary
"One of the sharpest, funniest voices on YouTube" (Forbes), comedian Grace Helbig offers an irreverent and illustrated guide to life for anyone faced with the challenge of growing up.

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 Guide is 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-color, Grace’s Guide features 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 colorful guide proves that becoming an adult doesn’t necessarily mean you have to grow up.

My Thoughts
YouTuber Grace, It's Grace, put out a book about how to at least pretend to be an adult. I haven't seen her YouTube vids but I and a struggling adult pretending to know what I am doing on a daily bases.

 Maybe I can learn something, right?

Well... Not much learning going on but it was a humorous account of her life and the many things she learned. We are just not similar in personality. Different kinds of introverts and dealing with different kinds of stress. I did laugh quite a few times and I would recommend it to those who like funny stories.I did skip the recipe section because I am a vegetarian and one recipe included spam. Ick. That part was not for me. She also like to use the word butt a lot and talks about loose bowls. Kinda gross but I get where she is coming from. It's still a bit nasty when she talks about diarrhea all the time.

It's a good guidebook but I'm a bit old for it- even though I straddle the Millennial line. Maybe I should be the one giving advise rather than reading it.
