Publisher's Summary

From Internet sensation Anna Akana comes a candid and poignant collection of essays about love, loss, and chasing adulthood.

In 2007, Anna Akana lost her teen sister, Kristina, to suicide. In the months that followed, she realized that the one thing helping her process her grief and begin to heal was comedy. So she began making YouTube videos as a form of creative expression and as a way to connect with others. Ten years later, Anna has more than a million subscribers who watch her smart, honest vlogs on her YouTube channel. Her most popular videos, including "How to Put On Your Face" and "Why Girls Should Ask Guys Out", are comical and provocative, but they all share a deeper message: Your worth is determined by you and you alone. You must learn to love yourself.

In So Much I Want to Tell You, Anna opens up about her own struggles with poor self-esteem and reveals both the highs and lows of coming of age. She offers fresh, funny, hard-won advice for young women on everything from self-care to money to sex, and she is refreshingly straightforward about the realities of dating, female friendship, and the hustle required to make your dreams come true. This is Anna's story, but, as she says, it belongs just as much to Kristina and to every other girl who must learn that growing up can be hard to do. Witty and real, Anna breaks things down in a way only a big sister can.

    "Some repetition of stories, but of great ones!"

    Loved! Only suggestion is to trust that your audience mostly remembers the stories you already told throughout the book. Will read again =) great story!

    "fish food for the soul"

    As a fan of Anna Akana's YouTube videos, this bridges some gaps in her life. It's her life story, unadulterated and real. Mix in a little motivation and success stories created from a good work ethic, this book is anything her fans would enjoy.

    "Exactly what you need to hear"

    Sex. Drugs. Money. And a whole lot of Heart.

    I'll keep this brief as to not spoil how truly special this gem is. This audio book will take you on an emotional journey through Anna's life with the type of voice inflections you feel when speaking to a close friend. The tambour in her voice, her delivery and well placed energy will keep you engrossed from the start.

    Thank you Anna, I loved every minute. Now excuse me, I'm going to listen to it again. :)

    Story
    "Poignant, direct, & real"

    Anna shares all - and I am thankful for it. As someone who believes to have gone through similar emotions, if not mirrored experiences, her advice is clear and useful, despite being in completely different fields and ages. Her thoughts on race in media, understanding if you are in a healthy relationship, and recognizing your relationship to your body (overeating and her ending thoughts on aging) resonated strongly with me as I suspect it would on others as well. I laughed out loud, was moved to tears at different parts for different reasons, and ended feeling both complete and recognizing how far more there is. I hope later in life, Anna picks up the story and tells what else happens as she continues to grow and learn. Listening to your story in her voice was even more rewarding than just reading the words. Thank you Anna, for being so honest and upfront with who you are.

    "intriguing narrative you just might learn from"

    Story
    "Heartfelt"

    As a girl in her 20s who has lost her sister, I pre-ordered this book right when I heard about it. I had extraordinary high hopes for it. While this book discusses Anna Akana's thoughts and feelings about her sister, it is not a overtly emotional story. I have written a lot about my own sister, so I know those thoughts cannot be embelished. The fact is the fact and what you feel is what you feel. This book is not about how sad Anna is, and it is not continouously about their relationship. This book is about how Anna found her purpose through the tragedy, things Anna wanted her sister to know about life. Advise that is in other books too, but this one is from one sister to another. Anna Akana's narration is beautiful. it is genuine and heartfelt.
