Praise

“Oh cool, you have a hilarious new best friend now! (It’s Akilah. And her book.)” –Samantha Irby, New York Times bestselling author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life

“This book is like Akilah: vulnerable but tough, positive without being annoying, and so, so funny. Through all these stories-some happy, some sad, some insane-there’s always a message that says don’t give up. Boyfriends let you down. Raccoons fall through ceiling vents. Sh*t happens. Keep going.” –Jon Lovett, co-host of Pod Save America

“Akilah Hughes is a light in the darkness. Her laughter runs through this book. Read it and make it your friend.”New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson

“Akilah is one of the best and brightest writers of our generation. If funny mixed with wit and honesty is the dish, Akilah Hughes is a five-star chef.” –Roy Wood Jr., Correspondent, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah

“These laugh-out-loud accounts read like warm conversations with an older cousin who provides helpful advice–sandwiched between love and laughter–on growing up.” Kirkus Reviews

“Hughes’ lively, humorous memoir is a fast, enjoyable read and indispensable for young people.” —Booklist

“In terms of drive, wit, and confidence, look no further…Hughes presents a charming and surprising essay collection.” —SLJ

“Funny, bittersweet, thought-provoking, and deeply sobering.” —PW
