Shane Dawson: I Hate My Selfie

Mamrie Hart: You Deserve a Drink

From YouTube star vlogger Connor Franta comes an illustrated book that grows out of his massive social media outreach–filled with annotated postcards, notes, texts, tweets, journal entries, emails, and letters that chart his coming of age. The front of the postcards feature his photos, both of himself and the things that inspire him, with the back answering questions from fans or relating anecdotes about the things that drive and influence him. Read from start to finish, the book tells a coherent narrative about coming-of-age and becoming an adult. From bullying to dating to leaving home, this is an inspirational book for fans aged 12-18 who are growing up and establishing their individuality. The various modes of communication in the book also reflect changes in Connor’s own use of technology over the last several years. A cross between an essay collection and a coming-of-age memoir, the book is divided into sections, with each section beginning with a short introduction about what’s affected Connor growing up. For example, a section on family begins with a short piece on Connor’s family and what he’s learned from them.

A confessional, uplifting memoir from the beloved YouTube personality Joey Graceffa has captured the hearts of more than a million teens and young adults through his playful, sweet, and inspirational online presence. Yet Joey wasn’t always comfortable in his skin, and this memoir features the YouTube darling at his most candid, taking us on his journey from pain to triumph. In the pages of his first book, Joey opens up about his most intimate struggles with familial hardship, educational setbacks, bullying and rejection, sharing his story in the hopes that his young readers will remember that it’s cool to be different, that growing up can really freaking suck, and that even if it sometimes feels like too much, things can and will get better. As Joey likes to say: “You’re all beautiful for spacious skies, and don’t let anyone ever tell you you’re not!”

Shane Dawson has always been an open book. From his first YouTube vlog back in 2008, to his feature film debut “Not Cool,” to a cover story in Variety magazine, Shane has documented his life pre-tty thoroughly. We’ve seen awkward and adorable Q&As with his mom, weight loss centre drama, love life details, and the all-important haircut reveal. We’ve seen his hilarious spoofs of Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Sarah Palin. His music videos are awesome. But in his upcoming memoir, fans will finally get a chance to see the real Shane through personal stories that are at once humorous and heart-warming, self-deprecating and totally inspiring. Highlighting key moments of his childhood and adolescence, through his phenomenal success on YouTube, and continuing on to his more recent experiences as an actor and director, Shane’s memoir will feature the silliness and satire his fans already enjoy, but will be even more in depth and real.

With her characteristic humour and willingness to welcome fans into her world, Justine will take readers deep into the six-month period when she live-streamed her life, revealing never-before-told stories, as well as anecdotes from her childhood and how she became the leading YouTube influencer she is today.

The riotously funny debut from the drinking star with a YouTube problem Since launching her YouTube channel “You Deserve a Drink” in 2011, comedian Mamrie Hart has built an intensely devoted following of more than half a million viewers. Like her bawdy and bacchanalian show, Hart’s eponymous debut pays tribute to her boozy misadventures with an original cocktail recipe accompanying each hilarious tale. From the “Leaves of Three Martini,” commemorating the hookup to whom she accidentally gave poison ivy, to the “Bizzargarita,” in honor of the time she and a friend were approached by two uber-Republican couples who wanted to “swing” while on vacation in Mexico, “You Deserve a Drink” is as useful as it is entertaining.
