Summary

'In the underrated noughties film Crossroads, Britney Spears sang the immortal words 'I'm not a girl, not yet a woman'. Cheers Brit. I too find myself getting stuck somewhere between being an overdeveloped teenager and not quite being a fully functioning adult woman. I have no idea how to back-up my iCloud, I can't drive and I'm pretty bad at stopping men with exciting beards and unbuttoned vintage shirts from taking a big old walk all over me. In fact, not a girl, not yet a woman...it sums up my 20s perfectly.'

Emily Atack was flung to fame at just 17, as the girl-next-door character in The Inbetweeners. Almost 10 years later, she won over the nation on I'm a Celebrity Get Me out of Here with her cracking impersonations, epic bravery in the Bushtucker trials and general positivity.

Now, in her first book, Emily digs deep and reveals the hilarious highs and the heartbreaking lows that rocked the years between. With astonishing courage and her trademark humour, she shares stories about her family, first dates (and bad dates), first loves, moments where she's hit rock bottom and how she finally came to realise that it was all going to be okay. Are We There Yet? is a warm, honest, funny book for women of any age who have ever felt they needed to look a certain way or felt uncomfortable in their own skin. It's about life, love, everything grubby and glamorous in between, and ultimately realising that you're good enough.

(Also she bought a laptop specifically to write this book so you better believe it's getting down and dirty :D)

Honest life story

Emily is honest and I feel like I could be her friend! Really liked the book. I just wish we got a bit more information about certain times in her life.

Refreshing

Easy to listen to and well read. She doesn't go into a great deal of detail on any of the events, I'd have liked to know more about the jungle and how she felt coming out. There's a lot but it's quite shallow information. Nonetheless I'm a huge fan and as a single 32 year old I find her refreshing and a good role model.

brilliant

Couldn't put it down! There were times I would literally laugh out loud along at her adventures and mishaps and felt her pain as she bared her soul. This has made me want to see her live show even more!

An honest and funny tale!

I was interested in this book as I loved Emily in 'The Inbetweeners' and also in the jungle. She comes across as such a genuine person and this book really does portray this. Also the reading of the book still feels very natural and not just a recital of the words on the page. I look forward to the next one!

This story is a ‘Jewel in a Crown’ of books

Are We There Yet?...is an extremely open and honest soul baring life story from Emily Atack. It is narrated by Emily herself, which adds to the strength and credibility of her story. Each chapter is brilliantly told and comes from the bottom of her heart. There are moments of sadness that tear at your heartstrings and, then the laughter she brings with her tales of her capers in her young life. Her story will resonate with all ages. A very highly recommended book.
