Praise for You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost):
“Felicia is a lot of fun, and so is her book.”
—George R.R. Martin
“Smart, funny, endearing, nerdy, and maybe also a little bit brave—in other words, very much like its author.”
—John Scalzi, Hugo Award-winning author of Redshirts
“Felicia Day gives us an achingly funny, honest, open look at being 'situationally famous,' (I love that phrase), plus the vital art of finding your creative joy, and weathering the storms that follow. It's a wonderful book. Buy it before I grab all the copies.”
—Rachel Caine, author of The Morganville Vampires
“[An] inspirational comic memoir . . . to set alongside Tina Fey's Bossypants, Amy Poehler's Yes Please, Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl and Sarah Silverman's The Bedwetter. Young people of both sexes and every gender should find much to empower them. (Older people, too, for that matter.)”
—Los Angeles Times
