    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jersey hair poof.


    Which character – as performed by Grace Helbig – was your favorite?

    Graaaace??


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Eat Shit! jk don't that bad for you...Just the tip.


    Any additional comments?

    Truly Grace thank you for sharing your experience and advice. I am 24 and do not have a clue of what I am doing. You have helped me understand myself and provided much needed tips on how to adult. Thank you.

    "Love it, love her"

    The book is silly, but informational about her and makes me love her even more. I wish the first few chapters didn't quite sound like she was reading a book but I think it's easy to get over because the content is so delightful!

    "Awesome and hilarious"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Grace's Guide to be better than the print version?

    We didn't read the print edition.


    Which character – as performed by Grace Helbig – was your favorite?

    Grace Helbig has a very personable style to her narrative of her book. She sounds like your best friend or older sister is sitting down to give you insight and advice.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Grace's Guide?

    My daughter and I listened to this book together on a long drive on her 16th birthday. She is starting to look at colleges, and wondering about what it will be like when she leaves high school, so I thought this would give us some things to talk about. I wasn't disappointed. We laughed, and listened intently. Grace is a wonderful story teller. In between stops, my daughter asked if I agreed with the advice, and I have to say I did for much of it. Some topics were a bit beyond where she is yet, but I think they were delivered in a way I didn't feel uncomfortable with, and they allowed us a chance to have some meaningful conversation. It was particularly helpful, because we could identify with Grace on many levels, so the "advice from the trenches" style was great.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was great to share between mom and daughter, but I would have loved to have this advice twenty-five years ago. And it was fun to listen to.

    "Overall very helpful (Surprisingly)"

    I love Grace Helbig been a fan of her since her early days in Youtube and surprisingly I found her writing above what i have expected. It's witty helpful and full of puns that you will just roll your eyes to or find yourself laughing at, its the type of humor that will creep you from behind and will surprise you with quick turns and mind boggling thought. Overall helpful and funny! Go Grace

    "Excellent and Funny"

    Such a good listen. I'm currently busy with the print version of the book as well. The best part is that you can pick up at any chapter. And even with all the whimsical funny connotations. It's great that their are some real solid life lessons. Awesome job Grace
