Disclaimer. Trigger Warning; Sexual Abuse, Drug Abuse, Violent/Harrowing scenarios, Prostitution

This book was a mixture of low-key fun with a dash of uncomfortable truths. There is a disclaimer at the beginning of the book about the trauma found therein, but honestly, it is not something you can prepare for, especially in regards to his brand of comedic delivery of delicate topics. It can have you giggling one moment and the next moment you feel like someone slapped you with a brick. It goes from 0 to 60 real quick, so be prepared. Besides, this was a really radiant and enjoyable book about the power of positivity and growing into the person you chose to be. Such an uplifting treat. I forgot to mention that it is not written in a traditional format, but more like a biographical allegory that may follow a linear path, but often does not. The author's style of writing is also very casual which may be off-putting for some. FYI. If you are looking for a quick pick me up or an inspirational somewhat casual (despite the traumatic moments) read, you won't be disappointed in this book.… (més)

This memoir is a tale of perseverance in the face of addiction and abuse--the tale of how Jonathan went from a scared little kid to the out-and-proud person we know from Queer Eye. Interesting read.

This picture book was lovely. Peanut loves to be themselves, and has so much fun doing the things they love, that their friends often join in. When Peanut decides to enter a rhythmic gymnastics competition they even turn a tumble into a triumph. All kids could learn from this book. Do what your heart loves, and others will love it with you.

Jonathan's voice is effervescent - it feels like you are making a new bff the whole time and he's telling you his life story. It's not all sunshine and rainbows and though all of his life experiences aren't relatable to me personally, there's such a undercurrent of midwestern, fish out of water trauma that I couldn't help but not along with. JVN is exactly who you want him to be: honest, funny, effervescent and inspiring.
