Synopsis:
A hilarious biography from YouTube sensation Caspar Lee (and his mom)!

This is a book about me. 

Unfortunately, I didn't write it--my mom did. WTF!

Let me tell you now that 98% of it is total lies. Actually, I'm pretty sure this book is illegal. So if you've bought it, you've basically supported a criminal. How does that feel?

I think she's getting me back for my first day in this world when I may have tried to kill her. She won't not be able to mention that. You might also find out about my first day at school, why my head is so massive, how I've always been a hit with the ladies and other things like that.

You know, important stuff. 

Anyway, I found the book at the printer and you'll see I've corrected some of her most outrageous lies.

So, you know, enjoy. Just remember only the bits that make me look good are true . . .
Rating: 5/5

My Review:

As I mentioned in my Addicted to YouTubers post, that I find it impossible not to love Caspar Lee or at least I can't. First time I saw Caspar was in Joe's Innuendo Bingo video that Caspar collaborated on. You can watch it here, so funny! From that video on, I was a fan of Caspar's and have been subscribed to him ever since. So when I found out he was releasing a book, I was so happy!!

This book is written mainly by his mom, and he makes edits throughout the book. It was so great to hear (I bought the audiobook as well) his mom, Emily, tells all about Caspar's upbringing and how he got to where he is today. There was a lot that I didn't know about Caspar, and as a viewer of his, it was nice to get to know more about him beyond what you see in his videos.

Caspar's book is definitely up there as one of my favourite YouTuber books now. I really enjoyed it! If you are a fan of Caspar's, new or old, you will love this book as it is funny, heartfelt and a good read to get to know more about your favourite YouTuber.
