Book review: All I Know Now: Wonderings And Reflections On Growing Up Gracefully

Following on from the huge success of her fellow vloggers and bloggers Zoella, Tanya Burr and Alfie Deyes, to name just a few, Carrie Hope Fletcher is the most recent internet superstar to take over the book charts.

YouTube stars create video content, usually of them sitting in front of a camera, in their bedroom, talking about whatever they fancy and their thousands (or millions) of subscribers (in Carrie’s case, the ‘Hopefuls’) sit in front of their computers and eagerly await their latest upload fix.

As YouTube’s “honorary big sister” 22-year-old Carrie, otherwise known as ‘Tom from McFly’s sister’ or, if you’re a fan of her videos, her channel name ‘ItsWayPastMyBedtime’, has taken a different approach to other YouTuber’s literary debuts by writing a book about growing up, full of help and advice she wished she had as a young teenager.

It’s a must-read for all teenagers.
