Overview

#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.

Editorial Reviews

Andy Cohen
"Grace Helbig is a sparkly vessel of wit and fun!"
Maureen Johnson
“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!”
LA Weekly
“Helbig isn't a flash-in-the-pan Internet personality . . . she's a brilliant comedienne.”
Variety
"One of YouTube's most endearing personalities."
Hannah Hart
“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.”
Mamrie Hart
“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.”
From the Publisher
"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
Tyler Oakley
“Hilariously honest without missing a beat, Grace brings her irresistible voice and lovable personality to Grace's Guide. #MustReadImmediately.”
Chris Hardwick
“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.”

Just like Helbig, this books shines in an unconventional but amazing way. Grace Helbig is a prominent Youtuber and touches on this lifestyle many times throughout the autobiography. The combination of narrative, lists, guest writers and interactive pages make this book a hit with many different audiences. She discusses serious topics such as social anxiety and the pressure to make quality content as well as lighter subject like, how to make adult friends.  Overall, the novel is a hilarious light read and will have you on fits in the floor, especially if you purchase the audiobook voiced by Helbig herself.

This book was a great read. I finished it in about a day and I have to say that it is perfect for millennials and/or anybody facing hard transitions in their life. I found myself highlighting a majority of the book because I related to almost everything. I shared this book with all of my friends and think that anyone should read it.

This book was fantastic and pretty funny. The book is all about learning to be yourself, love your life, and “pretending to be a grown up.” Although this book is written to be a little silly, it has some valuable advice that makes this book perfect for everyone. Throughout the book she has big colorful pages with quotes from her mom called “Mom’s Words of Wisdom.” One of my favorites is “A wise man knows when not to speak. Thinking before speaking is like social spandex. It keeps you from nagging, bragging, and sagging” although it is a funny quote, it is valuable advice. I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to read a fun book, while getting something out of it.

I don't know what I was missing... it was funny at times, but it wasn't what I was expecting at all.

I wish I had this book back when I teen about to go to college or right after college. I find Grace's humor to be very relatable.
PVF More than 1 year ago
Not the best humor book I've ever read, but the very spunkiness of the author leaves you admiring this book.

I haven't been a Grace Helbig fan for long but when I found out she was writing a book I was very excited. This book is witty, hilarious, and actually really helpful. She becomes so relatable and it feels like you're just talking to a good friend. I pre-ordered the book for myself and have actually purchased copies for my friends who are not Grace fans at all simply because I think they would find it just as good as I did.

Grace's unique personality shines through the writing of this book. Her incredible sense of humor lends itself well to this book. With helpful advice coated with puns and jokes thrown in, its enjoyable to read while still getting wonderful advice.

As a senior in high school, I need all the help and advice I can get. Grace's book full of stories, advice, and signature humor is helpful and hilarious. It was an entertaining read and all of the photographs were amazing. Her guide offered me many useful tips in an honest and funny way! A must read for any millennial or lover of puns.

This is a super fun book, and it actually has some really great advice in it, too! It's beautiful and full of hilarious pictures of Grace, and it's really easy to flip through the sections. Her voice in the book is a really great extension of the videos she makes, but she really does know how to ground it in reality. It lives up to her "awkward older sister" persona.
KimmyKelly More than 1 year ago
I think it's safe to say that anyone who reads this will agree with The New York Times, Grace's Guide The Art of Pretending to be a Grown Up is truly #1 as well as its amazing author, Grace Helbig. Grace is an inspiration to so many. I think they will all agree that Grace's first book couldn't have been any better. So thank you Grace, for giving us this helpful and hilarious guide. We are excited to see what the future has in store for you.

Quirky, fun, and full of all the advice I never knew I needed to survive tough transitions in this digitally driven world. Grace's advice and humor helped me face some of the things going on in my own life. Both sincere and not too serious at the same time. It felt more like advice from a friend than anything else. I truly recommend this to anyone, specifically those transitioning out of high school or college!
RileighHickey More than 1 year ago
Hilarious, wonderful, and in it's own way very comforting to know that there are others out there who are not quite sure how to do this grown up thing. I am sure you will enjoy this fun filled, witty book that will leave in stitches from laughing! Definitely recommend!
