EXCLUSIVE: Includes the first chapter of Carrie's new novel In The Time We Lost
PRE-ORDER now in hardback, ebook and audio.
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. It includes 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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Armed with a ukulele or a cup of tea, vlogger Carrie Hope Fletcher has charmed her way into the hearts of her many, many YouTube fans. We think the refreshingly upbeat singer and actress—who appears in the West End production of Les Misérables—is the perfect person to write a handbook about growing up, chasing dreams and becoming a good person. All I Know Now is down-to-earth, honest and funny on topics as far-flung as posting comments online to negotiating romantic relationships. We’re recommending it to our teen friends and relatives.
Fletcher, a British actress and host of the YouTube channel It's Way Past My Bedtime, debuts with what she calls "the manual I yearned for when I was a teenager." Her own black-and-white line illustrations are interspersed throughout the kinds of doodles one might see in the margins of a student's notebook. Dividing the book into eight "acts" (with titles like "How to Get Your Heart Broken Only Just a Little Bit"), Fletcher discusses how to navigate social and home life, school, professional goals, and relationships, bolstered by examples from her own life; for example, after jumping between relationships, afraid to be alone, she spent much of a year single in an effort to become more independent. Fletcher openly addresses the ebbs and flows of adolescence, pursuing goals, and sometimes letting go of them: "If you decide to change those dreams after having wanted them for so long, it doesn't make you a failure. It makes you smart, realistic and above all honest with yourself." Ages 12 up.

CARRIE HOPE FLETCHER
I LOVE CARRIE SO MUCH. SHES SO INSPIRATIONAL AND AMAZING AND LEGIT THE BEST THING EVER. SHES MY ROLE MODEL AND I WISH HER THE BEST. THIS BOOK IS SO AWESOME
A somewhat self indulgent glance into the life of Carrie Hope Fletcher, she manages to be smug and superior whilst giving out generic and patronising advice. Supposedly aimed at teenagers but with the language and anecdotes of something aimed at twelve year olds, this book is nothing special. I'm sure her "hopefuls" all love it, but this is Carrie demonstrating her fatal flaw through literature, that flaw being her extreme morality to the point of being devoid of personality. I want to scream at her to actually enjoy life, to do something mean to someone she doesn't like and not regret it and spend twelve pages apologising and to actually live life as a normal human. I'm sure she's a great role model through preaching behaving perfectly and never ever doing anything remotely controversial but it makes this book tedious reading.
