About This Item
New York Times bestselling author, director, actor, and YouTube superstar Shane Dawson returns with another highly entertaining and uproariously funny essay collection, chronicling a mix of real life moments both extraordinary and mortifying, yet always full of heart.
Shane Dawson shared some of his best and worst experiences in I Hate Myselfie, the critically acclaimed book that secured his place as a gifted humorist and keen observer of millennial culture. Fans felt as though they knew him after devouring the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journal bestseller. They were right… almost.
In this new collection of original personal essays, Shane goes even deeper, sharing never-before-revealed stories from his life, giving readers a no-holds-barred look at moments both bizarre and relatable, from cult-like Christian after-school activities, dressing in drag, and losing his virginity, to hiring a psychic, clashes with celebrities, and coming to terms with his bisexuality. Every step of the way, Shane maintains his signature brand of humor, proving that even the toughest breaks can be funny when you learn to laugh at yourself.
This is Let's Pretend This Never Happened and Running With Scissors for the millennial generation: an inspiring, intelligent, and brutally honest collection of true stories by a YouTube sensation-turned one of the freshest new voices out there.

First and foremost, thank you to Shane for providing me a First-reads copy of this book! Second, I must confess the only knowledge I had of Shane prior to receiving this book was seeing a copy of his first book, "I Hate Myselfie" and thinking what a great title for a book! I had not had a chance to read it nor had I seen his YouTube videos, possibly because I am probably twice the age of his typical fan. So...with my obvious lack of familiarity with Shane why did I request a copy of his book you may ask. Two reasons: I love humor and I love books containing essays and/or short stories. Based on that vague criteria I feel I struck gold with this book. Reminiscent of the genius that is David Sedaris this book was exactly what I had hoped to find when entering the giveaway. Raw, uncut, sometimes offensive and always hilarious this book was a real gem! I cannot say enough good things about it. Each story was engaging and grabbed you from the start. I often felt like I was in the same room with Shane. After reading the last chapter, written by his mother, it is clear where he got his wit, humor and gift of storytelling. Next on my to read list is his first book; I've already checked it out from my local library. You have gained a new fan Shane! Looking forward to the next book.
