About this deal

If you want someone to give you a little spur to carry on pursuing your dreams, no matter what age - get this book. I could picture the tiny squares and fragments of the story that I’ve watched unfold over the years. When you are reading reviews of her first book, Nowhere for Very Long (HarperOne 2022), I encourage you to keep that in mind and weed out the bullshit.

Brianna is someone I’ve been so drawn to for years now, I’d say a good 5/6 I’ve been watching her on instagram. I read in 2 days and it is the type of book that makes you ponder what more you can do with your life. Rejecting the competitive and capitalistic path set out before her, she chose to seek a truer version of happiness, a road scary, uncertain, and entirely her own. Brianna wrote this beautifully and filled the pages with stories that will make you laugh and make you cry and inspire inspire you all at the same time.It takes all kinds, and I’m sure this is more for her fans and less for those who actually live a comparable life or like to read regularly. She talks about her strengths, her will, and her determination to create the kind of life that honors what she loves. The 1 star comments read like a manifesto of people who have never once made a mistake, never done anything wrong, don’t have any exes who would say a bad word about them, and have never hurt or betrayed a friend in their life. It may sound odd to talk about an Instagram stranger inspiring me to make a change, but that's what happened. To be fair, I think if you are a younger person who hasn't ever gone camping or had much experience adventuring alone - you may enjoy this book.

I'm not going to guess at what's true, but I'll say the book's explanation of the biggest issue is at least plausible. I stuck with it because I was hoping that at any second, it would become meaningful or the very least, exciting. She made a name for herself on social media with her inspiring captions cum- essays about bravery, identity, nature, and subverting expectations.

I'm tired of book deals being given to people who don't have anything interesting or original to say. she does address this towards the end after the dog near-death incident but that could use some more fleshing out.
