#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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't know. I don't know (is grace's tag line) and this book is amazing. I liked it more than her 2nd book, but that one was good too. Lots of pictures and funny dumb advice, very on brand for Helbig!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I read this book fairly quickly and it ended up being alright. I liked it better than her second book. It's filled with lots of personal stories and some of the advice is surprisingly practical. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Practical Advice For Young People Today! I picked up this book because it had a colourful cover with a quirky girl on it so I gave it a look through. It passed the flip test so I bought it. I had no idea Grace Helbig was a YouTube star. No matter! Anybody can read this book with no prior knowledge of her work. Her humour resonated me and her advice is practical for today's young folk, not like some of these stuffy etiquette books that are not practical in any way. Lots of good advice for how to deal in many situations in a modern, considerate way. Thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love This Book I picked this up in the clearance section because I liked the front cover. Later, I realized that it had much more than a cute cover. Grace's struggles with anxiety helped me realize my own and learn from her mistakes. Her humour lifted me up and made me laugh constantly. This book doesn't just cater to adults, but myself, a teenager. Great book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect. Got it signed by her as well. Definitely worth the wait. She's amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real, useful advice Grace is my favourite YouTuber, but I was prepared to be disappointed when I read her book. However, I was pleasantly surprised that amidst her trademark humour was real, good advice about living like an adult. There were also more personal stories than I was expecting, and it was interesting to learn about Grace's struggle with anxiety, her experiences in college, and how her experiences informed the advice she gave. The only questionable section was the cooking section (but that's not wholly a surprise, and anyway, Hannah Hart has us covered there). This book made me feel "closer" to Grace and I look forward to putting some of her advice into action.
