Description

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. 

“This book is filled with the kind of honesty, vulnerability, and determination that makes Anna such a captivating person. One warning: You’ll want to hug her a lot while reading this.” (Natalie Tran, actress and comedian)

“As a woman working in entertainment, Anna Akana is accustomed to feeling vulnerable. Which means that she’s used to being brave. This book is a tribute to the duality of bravery and fear as told through Anna’s experiences to date.” (Hannah Hart, New York Times best-selling author of Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded)

“Frank advice on how to live a productive, happy life...written in tribute to a ‘fearless, talented, and bold’ sister.” (Kirkus Reviews)

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!

Brilliant

What did you love best about So Much I Want to Tell You?

I loved how intimate it was. It honestly felt like my older sister was giving me life advice.

Any additional comments?

I decided to finish this on my way to work, which caused me to walk in the door with obvious signs of crying. 10/10 will definitely recommend this book. 1/10 don't recommend listening to it when you have professional obligations.

Anna Akana is brilliant

Akana's life lessons and stories are brought to life with her own voice. She shares her perspective on therapy, suicide, love, loss and everything in between. I highly recommend to any young adult!

Anna Akana for president

It took me so long to get this book and then almost a year to finish it completely because I was crying, but even with the expectations high it was still amazing. Now I only hope for a translated book so I can show to my friends and they can cry and feel everything I felt listening to this.
I'm so proud of Anna Akana, for everything, but also for writing this, it's not an easy thing to reveal the past, but she did it and I love to see her growing each day more and I want to thank her for everything she's ever done for me and @everbody READ THIS BOOK AND WATCH HER VIDEOS, she's the reason I gave up giving up on life and I'm forever thankful for her

heartfelt

I've been watching Anna Akana on YouTube for years and even as a man I found her stories quite insightful and was able to take a ton away from it.
also got a copy for my sister in effort to help her learn some things I definitely have no lense for.
great listen and wonderfully narrated.

A relevant book by an admirable woman

Anna's experiences — either on her videos or on her book — resonate deeply with me as a woman, creative person and human trying to overcome the passing (in less than a week) of two grandmothers. I came here looking for comfort and another point of view related to death, and I'm glad I did it. It spoke to me in many levels, in which I didn't know I needed to hear.

Wonderful book

I have been a big fan of Anna's work for years. I am not one to retweet everything or to like/share every video, but I love each and every message of hers. You can see she puts a lot of work into what she does and this resonated throughout this whole book. Getting a personal insight into her life...it's truly inspirational. To see where someone is and where they have come from. It's truly worth a lot. I can only recommend this book! I was very long hesitant to buy it, because I wasn't sure if I would like it, but I'm glad I finally did. It truly is a work of art. Thank you for writing this, Anna!
