I knew almost nothing about Hannah Hart when I picked this book up from the library, but after a quick google search, I watched a bunch of My Drunk Kitchen episodes and was pleasantly surprised by how hilarious they were. After seeing her work, I jumped into the book and really, really enjoyed learning more about Hart’s childhood and career. From an unstable home and a super religious background, Hart has dealt with accepting her own sexuality (and losing family in the process), surviving a childhood overshadowed by a mother with severe mental illness, and building a successful career in media. In the midst of all that, she’s invited social justice and activism into her public persona, and has become a huge advocate and role model for teens and young adults who are struggling through some of the same things she has. I was moved and inspired by her story, and would recommend it to anyone. Especially loved the photos of diary entries that she includes!
