"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." - Source

With sections covering everything you need to know to ‘pretend’ to be a grown up, from advice for jobs and interviews to relationships, cooking and even home décor, Grace’s Guide is a great coffee table book that fans of her YouTube channel ‘It’s Grace’ will adore.

Grace uses her personal experiences to shape the book with many anecdotes, childhood photographs as well as ‘Mom’s words of wisdom’ along the way. The book even includes a short foreword penned by Grace’s brother Tim. Alongside these are lists of tips and advice, handily made into some very unique acronyms to help readers remember them. There’s also an interactive element with fun worksheets to fill out if you wish!

For the most part the tone of the book is conversational and light-hearted, similar to that of Grace’s videos, with her personality shining through into the way she writes. The design is also fun with colourful photographs illustrating the topics of each section and a simple, easy to read layout.

With it’s sense of humour and honesty Grace’s Guide would make a great Christmas gift for any fan of this popular YouTube comedian.
