Product Details


“With a knack for infusing the most dire or painfully awkward circumstances with a heaping dose of humor and infectious enthusiasm, Chack and her candidly conversational, meandering approach will quickly convert readers into chuckling confidants. A heartfelt celebration of goofiness in all its glory.” —Booklist 

“Readers will laugh, cheer, and internally groan at relatable awkward moments as the author invokes nostalgia and excitement for young adulthood.” —School Library Journal

“With the same humor that has brought her writing gazillions of views on Buzzfeed, Erin Chack finds humor within the pain and awkwardness of her adolescence. This Is Really Happening is like a YA version of Tina Fey’s Bossypants.”  —Josh Sundquist, author of We Should Hang Out Sometime and Just Don’t Fall

“Erin Chack’s laugh-out-loud funny and deeply affecting book made me want to call my college friends, pack up a car, and have a wild, imperfect adventure.” —Katie Heaney, author of Never Have I Ever and Dear Emma

“Hilarious and brilliantly observed even as it’s punching you right in the heart, This is Really Happening will—no lie—make you a radder and better person. Lord knows it worked for me.” —Isaac Fitzgerald, editor of BuzzFeed Books and co-author of Pen & Ink and Knives & Ink

Erin has this incredible ability to spot humor in unexpected places, from cancer treatments to fearing death to young love. I was endlessly tickled by her wit and captivated by her story.” —Shane Burcaw, author of Laughing at My Nightmare 

“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll barely notice that hours have gone by while you’ve been lost in Erin’s world.” —Matt Bellassai, People’s Choice Award Winner for Favorite Social Media Star, stand-up comic, and creator of the web series To Be Honest
