Description

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.show more

Review quote

"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." -- Chris Hardwick, host of @midnight on Comedy Central and founder and CEO of Nerdist Industries "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 "I've always looked up to Grace Helbig-and not only because she's a giantess!-because she has the extraordinary ability to accomplish whatever she sets out to do. I think this book is a testament to that." -- Hannah Hart, author of My Drunk Kitchen "Helbig isn't a flash-in-the-pan Internet personality ... she's a brilliant comedienne." LA Weekly "One of YouTube's most endearing personalities." -- Variety "This book is just like Grace Helbig--hilarious, bright, and will cut you when you least expect it. Seriously, paper cuts are no joke. This is high-quality paper stock." -- Mamrie Hart, Host of You Deserve a Drink on YouTube "Hilariously honest without missing a beat, Grace brings her irresistible voice and lovable personality to Grace's Guide. #MustReadImmediately." -- Tyler Oakleyshow more

Our customer reviews

Grace’s style of vlogging is rather impersonal and not too deep (get it get it *winkwink*) and when she gives advice it’s not to be taken too seriously so when she announced she was writing a tongue in cheek self help book that gives advice to millennials I was expecting a book that wasn’t to be taken seriously either. Boy was I wrong! Even though she writes very similarly to how she vlogs, which is sometimes going slightly off course and sprinkling some taint jokes here and there, this book contains actual useful advice! Like I said it’s not always to be taken completely seriously, but Grace covers some really important topics you deal with when you’re legally considered an adult. I myself might be 26 years old and even though the rest of the world considers me to be one of those adults, I consider myself more as a child with a drinking permit that has absolutely no idea how to properly adult. So you can see I was in desperate need for some enlightenment. She covers everything from school to job interviews to travel tips to how to properly throw and attend a party. And let me tell you – I LEARNED SO MUCH!
