Summary

From the popular YouTube tastemaker Eva Gutowski comes a unique lifestyle and advice book on the ups and downs of life in her hilarious and earnest voice.

What's up, guys? It's me, Eva! You may know me from my YouTube channel, MyLifeasEva. If that's the case, then you might also know that I have a munchkin cat named Paris, a weird obsession with patterned sock collecting, and the tendency to say "holy schnitzel!" at all the wrong moments. Like...embarrassing moments.

I'm so lucky to have my fans - over seven million besties and counting! It has been amazing to meet so many of you since I started making videos. Growing up, books were what got me through life - a lot of the good times and the really, really bad times. And no matter how challenging life got, I promised myself that I would get through it, in hopes that someday I'd have chances to help people who need that one piece of great advice at just the right time. So here's a book by me, totally for you. I'll tell you a ton of my secrets, a lot of fail stories, and how I made it through - and you can, too! Think of my book like a best friend you can turn to at any time. Xo Eva.

You think you know Eva? Think again

Everyone on YouTube appears to be so perfect, live the perfect life and have no worries at all. The things is, everyone does!
Thank you to Eva for sharing her life story (so far) with us! Having an insight into your life, both the up's and the challenging was really interesting.
Here's to your next chapters, and may they be filled with many happy memories xoxoxo

review

For all of the evanators: if you still haven't heard this book, you got to. I know you love Eva and her generous and kind heart but this book will make you get to know her story better. After finishing this book i am convinced that Eva is one of the strongest people ever. The book is very well written and very reletable to anyone who is or have been a teenager in the 21th century.

This is amazing.

Pure excellence! I love it, so much nostalgia. Even better with Eva reading it herself. Honestly best book I've listened in awhile. Thank you so much Eva Gutowski for blessing us with this book.

Best book ever

Would you listen to My Life as Eva again? Why?

Yes! this book was so cool and sad and fun and so many feelings!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life as Eva?

The part where she was raped that was something you can't forget

What does Eva Gutowski bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voice made it sound like she was there and didn't make it like a book. It was like a story being told.

her strageys on how she handled stuff

Any additional comments?

IT WAS SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!

You Killed It Girl

I've been following Eva on Youtube for years and have only NOW gotten around to listening to her book. I wish I had started it sooner! Not only is the book fun and insightful, it also holds a great message about confidence and self love to girls growing up. I listened to it religiously. Like one of those really good shows you get invested in, I'm sad its over. I would love to see more from her in the future. Good work Eva!

perfect for high school students

narrator was great, obvi we all love eva😍

I an 23 years old though and I dont think this is something for my age group. definitely perfect for middle schoolers or high schoolers. very inspirational and would be a great way to handle things that life throws at you. its important to remember we are all different people having different experiences and I'm glad she shared hers!

I came upon this book because I was looking into youtubers and she was one of my favs!!
