Grace's GuideThere are people who are eager to grow up, either wanting to enjoy the freedom that adults have, or hoping the world would take them seriously if they are grown-ups. However, there are often times that they do not realize the many responsibilities and tasks that adults have to deal with. Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to be a Grown-Up is a perfect manual for young adults, whether they be teenagers who are pumped to be adults, or be actual adults who have not yet mastered the skills of being adults.

Grace Helbig’s self-help guide is hilarious with all her non-serious tones that she uses in her videos. Readers definitely get to experience Grace’s witty voice in their own heads while reading her guide. People who have come to love Grace’s persona and her way of portraying things will certainly enjoy this fascinating and entertaining book. And for those who either haven’t heard of Grace yet (what is your problem anyway? With Grace’s TV show on E! and her videos that are available FREE on YouTube, there is absolutely no excuse in not knowing her), it may require some time to get used to her tone but in no time, I am certain that you will also find it appealing.

While the tone of the book is important, I do believe that people care most about the actual tips that you can find in Grace’s Guide. It is safe to say that they are very useful and one will definitely refer to it from time to time when you go through either tough times at work or school, or breakups and anxiety, or even the headaches that go hand in hand with organizing parties.

There are also personal stories that Grace incorporates in her book and thus it is highly relatable. Being a university student, I find myself nodding my head in agreement to the problems she encountered as a college student. From only able to find acquaintances but not friends, to the busy schedule that you causes yourself by ambitiously trying to fit way too many activities into your already hectic life and aiming a way too high GPA, Grace has addressed all these problems that one will likely encounter in your life and offers wise solutions to all of them.

Overall, Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to be a Grown-Up is definitely the go-to book for any fella who has trouble in being an adult. It offers tips that are hilarious yet useful. Yet while they are very serious tips that you can certainly use in your daily life, don’t expect the whole book be too series. Afterall, the one thing that Grace Helbig wants to promote is to be “NOT TOO DEEP”, right? (For those who don’t know, NOT TOO DEEP is a podcast series that is created by none other than Grace Helbig.)
