The essential guide to navigating the 'teen age' by YouTube sensation Carrie Hope Fletcher
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 Hope Fletcher is an actress, singer, author and vlogger. Carrie's first book, All I Know Now, was a number one Sunday Times bestseller and her debut novel, On the Other Side, also went straight to number one. In The Time We Lost is Carrie's fourth novel.
Carrie played the role of Eponine in Les Miserables at the Queen's Theatre in London's West End for almost three years. She has since stared in and received awards for a number of productions including The War of the Worlds, The Addams Family, and Heathers: The Musical. Carrie will soon rejoin Les Miserables, this time playing Fantine, in a new concert version at the Gielgud Theatre.
Carrie lives just outside of London with numerous fictional friends that she keeps on bookshelves, just in case.
