Carrie Hope Fletcher is a twenty four year old English author/musician/actress/blogger and YouTuber. She has released many books such as ‘All I Know Now’, ‘On The Other Side’ and ‘Winter’s Snow’. Carrie has amassed over 640,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel, ItsWayPastMyBedtime.
Carrie has run, for a while now, a blog called All I Know Now, and regularly receives messages in her Tumblr inbox asking her about the various different aspects and elements of teenage life, and how to navigate them. We all know that growing up is hard to do, and sometimes the only thing that makes it better are the reassuring words of someone who has walked that bumpy road just a few steps ahead of you and somehow ended up as a fully-functioning adult. Carrie Hope Fletcher is that person.
Thanks to her phenomenally popular YouTube videos, Carrie has become an “honorary big sister” to hundreds of thousands of young people who turn to her for advice, friendship and, most of all, the knowledge that things will get better.
It’s about handling the people around you, about dreams and aspirations and making them come true. It’s about boys, school, yourself and everything in between.
Carrie Hope Fletcher is an inspirational person, who gives this advice not sounding like a know-it-all, or with a distinctive look-how-amazing-I-am-and-you-aren’t like tone between the lines. It’s a book about all she knows now and how it can help others. Because if her dreams (playing Éponine in ‘Les Miserables’, and writing a book) came true, why shouldn’t ours?
‘All I Know Now’ is an honest book, filled with encounters from Carrie’s life, exploring how she has coped, and what methods worked for her.
She doesn’t sugar-coat anything. She tells it how it is and always advises people to not only to think about themselves, but to think about others and the impact we have on the people around us. Overall, ‘All I Know Now’ is a wonderful book that we fully believe should be handed to everyone when they reach the age of fourteen.
Even if you have never heard of Carrie before, that shouldn’t stop you from picking up this book and listening to what she has to say.
