amazing all round !! 😍

gabbie you did truly incredible just as i expected, its insane how it's filled with so many different emotions, including poems with such a twist! i was either laughing or crying throughout, from relating to the poems or genuinely just from being so proud to support you! this was written so incredibly and so well thought out, layout wise and content wise, proud will always be an understatement with you gabbie! forever and always be as proud of this book as i am plz, you have created such a insane book which deserves so much positivity and support! love always, toni<3

Mediocre at best

While there are perhaps two or three pretty good poems in this collection, the majority of this book just feels like filler. The majority of them aren't really poems, more so just cheap rhymes and poor jokes. The whole book just feels quite lazy and last minute, if you're a fan of Gabbie's you may enjoy it - but if you are here for a solid poetry book, look elsewhere.

I had to get therapy

Honestly where do i start, This total dumpster fire of literature is proof that god has in fact left because he too fears what he has created. Even the eventual heat death of the universe will not erase this from my memory sadly. Every day i wake up and have flashbacks to the diarrhea of the words on the page, the flash backs will never leave me and will haunt me for the rest of my pitiful existence. I have had to start a daily regime of therapy in a fruitless attempt to ease my suffering, alas i am unable to keep a therapist for long as they too are infected by the madness that this insult to god inflicts on unsuspecting readers. The only saving grace is that audible has included an option to speed up the book and at 3 times speed it is just enough to get through this desecration of a tree's corpse. For a book i rate it a zero, it is more a kin to a sort of death note where the person you give this too will go mad and die within seven days. Would recommend to Kyle screw that guy you stole my cookies and i never will forgive you.

Just to let ya'll know it's 0/5

This is what happens when a person has a book deal but only sees it as a quick cash grab. I'm glad she got cancelled. I don't like her!

Blown Away

I already know that Gabbie is talented from watching her YouTube videos, then seeing her go on tour and do stand-up comedy and dance videos, before she came out with this book and her song Out Loud. I'm beginning to think there isn't anything she can't do. I knew this book would be good but I was not prepared for the things it would make me feel. Gabbie knows us, and it's made clear in every poem. My favorite was Dolly. I must have listened to it 20 times in a row. Overall, I recommend this book to anyone in general but especially to anyone struggling and living with depression and/or anxiety because it's really good to know that someone else understands what we're going through. Thank you, Gabbie, for inspiring me with your talent, making me laugh with your videos, and seeing me as a person through this book. I can't wait to see what you'll do next!

Listened to the whole book in hospital.

I'm a 23 year old working professional and listened to this on my Bluetooth speakers. All while recovering from about a 2 week stay in a mental health facility. Gabbie, thank you for the bright wit, intelligence and artistry in this book of hilarious, thoughtful and poignant work. I love your show on YouTube. Keep being you! ♡

It’s just not good.

It’s just not worth your money. I mean it’s funny at first, but afterwards her bad writing just makes you sad. If you want real poetry, I recommend Lang Leav.

This book is too true

Being a fan of Gabbie, I thought this book was going to be all about her, I was pleasantly surprised after listening to it, some of these were so deep I wanted to cry. This book is amazing, it won't let you down, she goes over different topics and has different stories to tell, the life advice can get you places if you try them, I'm happy I got a chance to get the book and listen to it!

gabbie hanna should be a voice actor

I love her poem just wanted to write to let you know how much I appreciate the positive influence you've had on my life. Thank you for your concern and useful advice! I’ll be forever grateful. You inspired me during a difficult time when I needed words of encouragement. You don’t even know how much your help meant to me. Thank you.
