The only thing bigger than Carrie Hope Fletcher's hair is her heart. Eternally upbeat, this 22-year-old dynamo has sung her way to fame, both as Eponine in the London cast of Les Mis and on her wildly popular YouTube channel, It's Way Past My Bedtime. But here's her not-so-secret: This rising star was once a high school misfit.
Carrie's youthful fans come to YouTube to hear her talk music, books, and whatever comes to mind! But when they write to her, they want advice most of all. In All I Know Now, Carrie tackles every tough topic, from how to apologize ("Don't make excuses, but do explain.") to how to handle bullies ("Punch them in the face. Kidding! Kidding!")
Carrie grew up just one step ahead of her teen and tween fans. She can remember her own awkward phase (all too well!), so she never lectures her audience; she confides in them. Thanks to Carrie's personal touch, this generous guide to growing up is as one-of-a-kind as its author!

Carrie's prose and manner of speaking makes it seem like I'm having a chat with an old friend. This book, while aimed at a younger demographic, rings with sincerity and honest advice. It was a pleasure to read and listen to.
I absolutely loved it it was fun to read made me laugh make me cry it was one of the best books that I've read in a really long time it is kind of like a self help book for teens which is interesting I would definitely recommend it
I followed the writing of this book in Carrie's videos from start to finish, and I've been greatly anticipating it. I'm very glad that I chose to purchase the audiobook, because Carrie's voice and personality absolutely shines through and speaks to the heart and the soul.
The advice in this book can apply to the young teens just getting started and the young adults just starting their own lives. Carrie's optimistic, gentle, kind outlook on life is inspiring, and brought me to tears to see such a beautiful soul in the world. This book comes highly recommended, and just let yourself listen and understand Carrie and understand your own life.
Mrs. Fletcher's storytelling isn't really all that unique. This memoir contained no real substance, it just reiterated advice that people have been giving for ages. It come across in a monotonous, condescending tone and treats the reader/listener as if we are a small child (think primary school) who need to be guided through life.
Maybe. Her voice is lovely, but her own thought process is dull.
The narrator herself
Wether you like the story or not is for you to decide, but I absolutely loved falling asleep to Carrie's soothing voice. It is the fastest way to sleep. I have insomnia and have always had trouble sleeping, but this book made me fall asleep in ten minutes. I only recommend the audio book version. Her soothing voice is the important part
I loved this book. I think the concept is amazing, the idea that Carrie Hope Fletcher has survived adolescence and is now turning around and help teenagers like me through. All I Know Now is like a survival guide for my- our generation. It is beautifully worded and hilarious. The stories Carrie tells make you laugh , make you cringe, but moat of all let you learn. As a Hopeful I am very happy for Carrie and cannot wait for her next book to come out this year! So, in conclusion, All I Know Now is a must read for teenagers, Carrie teaches how to be a better person, sharing her owns experiences and lessons learnt, so we can learn from them too. Well done Carrie! Xx
