All I Know Now: Wonderings and Reflections on Growing Up Gracefully Read Online Free - 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 . . .

Carrie is one of my favorite YouTubers ever.. I truly believe we would be really good friends IRL. So naturally, since this book is all about her and all of her stories, I completely adored this book. Carrie and I are the same age, so (like her) I wish I'd had some of this advice when I was a bit...

This is my first non-fiction book, so I'm a little unsure of how to review it! It's Carrie's life after all! But, I did have a few thoughts while reading the book, so while this might not be the most conventional review, I thought, seeing as a lot of people will probably get this book, that it mi...

Carrie Hope Fletcher. The big sister you never had. The sunshine on a rainy day. The master. The 'Hope' to guide the Hopefuls. (that pun is always intended). If you dont love her you're doing something wrong.
This book is a gem. I'm not going to pretend that i didnt already know many of the advic...

Being a lucky lucky bookseller, the publisher kindly sent me a copy. It includes a stern warning not to publish any of the text or to put up any pictures of the contents, so no quotes here!
Being an oldish person (36) and very distracted by a toddler and World of Warcraft, I'd not really heard abo...

Full disclosure: I had no idea who Carrie Hope Fletcher was prior to reading this book. In truth, I can't recall ever hearing her name, even. I picked All I Know Now up from the library on a whim after seeing it, and thinking the cover was cute, and not much more. Here's what I thought this book...

Carrie has done it: she has successfully written the unofficial guide on how to be a teenager. And not just a teenager: how to deal with people, dreams, aspirations and more, all in adorable Carrie fashion.
I would like to say that I am a decent teenager. Not trying to be a moralistic knight in d...

I've been watching Carrie's YouTube videos for a couple of years now and she's pretty much the ideal big sister that her viewers as well as me see her as.
This book doesn't just give fun anecdotes about Carrie but its one of the biggest comfort reads I've ever had the blessing to read. After fini...

2.5 stars, really.
First of all this book was so heteronormative, but I guess it was talking about her experiences to I'll let it slide.
Honestly I think this book could help a lot of people and maybe could have even helped me (probably in the summer between primary school and secondary school. I...

It's not that this was a bad book. It was just okay and it mainly has to do with the fact that this doesn't necessarily apply to me any longer, but it is definitely something I would've appreciated in my younger years, going through college and university.
I can see myself giving this to my younge...
