Publisher's Summary

A one-woman media phenomenon and a leading YouTube influencer takes listeners behind the camera and deep inside her world.

Justine Ezarik has been tech obsessed since unboxing her family's first Apple computer. By sixth grade she had built her first website. A decade later she became one of the Internet's first - and most popular - "lifecasters", inviting people around the world to watch her every move 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But it was a one-minute video about an itemized AT&T bill that gave Justine her first taste of viral success: Within 10 days of release, her "300-page iPhone bill" had garnered more than three million views and international media attention. These days, iJustine is a one-woman new media phenomenon: The popular techie, gamer, vlogger, and digital influencer has an army of nearly 3.5 million subscribers across multiple YouTube channels, with total views approaching half a billion.

Now Justine is giving friends and fans a look behind the scenes, sharing never-before-told stories about the hilarious (and sometimes heartbreaking) reality of sharing her life online. With her trademark wit and delightfully weird sense of humor, Justine delivers an inspirational message in support of creativity, entrepreneurship, and the power of staying true to yourself while reminding listeners that the Internet is a very small world - you just never know who you're going to meet.

Terrific

Absolutely terrific. I have met iJustine and she is very kind, sweet and a very authentic in person. She gives me hope that girls can be both hot and cool. Great book, very interesting stories, and things that I never knew about her. Very interesting of how she started out. Congratulations iJ - @lifeofwilde

The saga of iJustine

"I, Justine" is the story of a girl who grows up fascinated with video games and computers and became a woman famous on Twitter and YouTube. She lived for LAN parties and exploring the early days of the Internet. Practically from birth, she's loved Apple products (which is why she eventually identified herself online as "iJustine"). She briefly dabbled in programming, but learned she had more of a desire for the visual--web design, taking pictures, making videos. She eventually had a job with long hours and nothing to do, so she would make silly videos to entertain herself. That became more of a passion, leading to podcasts, all kinds of silly videos, lifecasting, a huge following on various social media sites, and eventually fame and fortune and minor acting roles.

Justine is stunningly beautiful, but always seems surprised that anyone thinks so. She is sweet and charming, but frankly talks about the heavy, scary, and soul-crushing trolling she's endured, somehow continuously bouncing back from it.

It's always a pleasure to hear a book read by the author, as this one is.

What's the value of this book? Who should listen to it, apart from hardcode iJustine fans?
- being a software engineer, it touched my heart to hear of a young girl fascinated with computers and technology growing up. That could be inspiring to young women who could one day grow up to work in the technology field, although the fact that Justine focused on being an Internet celebrity instead of an engineer may make that a less than perfect choice.
- for those of us who don't quite get how anyone could make a living being an Internet star, or how that even happened, this can be an interesting story to better understand that
- for those who want more than anything else to be a YouTube star, this would be worth a listing. It is absolutely not any kind of instruction manual, the online world is a very different place than when iJustine got started, and she admits herself that how she got started is not the most effective method. However, this could provide some perspective on what is necessary, and the pros and cons of going down that path.

Loved it

I’d like just to thank Justine, for writing the book, I’ve just finished re-reading it and I couldn’t be more inspired by the story and the ever flowing message to not be afraid to be different, and that even through the toughest of times...it will get better thanks Justine.

A trip down memory lane and a brilliant insight.

As a fellow 80's baby with a severe tech habit, I thought this was a great trip down memory lane as well as an insight into Justine's life and journey.

Utterly Amazing

Where to start?

Like many reviews already written, I've been following Justine for a while, but I never realised the back story to it. This book is truly amazing taking you through all of Justine's Life, from the high to the lows. With Justine reading this, you just get that extra with her uniqueness on how she explains her life.

If your looking at this now, being undecided wether to buy or not, I would highly recommend! Once I started listening I could not put this down!

Dull

I wanted more from this, there was nothing new in here that I hadn’t already learnt from watching her videos over the years. I was expecting more insight, more behind the scenes stuff. Nope. If you watch her videos you won’t get anything out of this book.

I, heart Justine.

I have watched iJustine on YouTube for many a year now, and was excited at the release of her book. She was and still is, one of my favorite Internet personalities. Any fan of hers would be able to appreciate this book, and those who aren't may just learn a thing or two about the Internet. She offers a glimpse into what happens behind the camera and answers many of the questions I always wanted to ask.
