Synopsis

All I Know Now Wonderings and Reflections on Growing Up Gracefully by Carrie Hope Fletcher

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 ...

Reviews

Oh, what a fantastic book - so honest, so brilliant, so KIND. If every mum or dad buys this for their teenager they'll be doing themselves a real favour - everyone will benefit, I promise! Jill Mansell, author of DON'T WANT TO MISS A THING Where was this book when I was growing up? Even with describing her mistakes and stumbles, Carrie's prose remains graceful and perfect. This is a best friend in book form Andrew Kaufman, author of ALL MY FRIENDS ARE SUPERHEROES Young, fab and incredibly talented, I think I manage to keep my massive jealousy of Carrie Hope Fletcher just about under control :-) Jenny Colgan, author of THE LITTLE BEACH STREET BAKERY All I Know Now ... It's super mega awesome Emma Blackery, youtube.com/emmablackery An honest and funny guide to growing, dreaming and being Samantha Shannon, author of THE BONE SEASON Oh @CarrieHFletcher I am LOVING your book.
