Publisher's Summary

Features an Audible Exclusive: The Making of Abbott Elementary

“In She Memes Well, Quinta gives more than a peek behind the curtain. She invites us in, lets us poke around and offers a balm for our aching souls. She moves beyond the jokes into something much deeper, something we may not recognize we need. She is the friend, sister, lover, cool co-worker we all wished we had.” (Gabrielle Union, actress and New York Times best-selling author of We’re Going to Need More Wine)

From comedian Quinta Brunson (creator and star of Abbott Elementary) comes a deeply personal and funny collection of essays about trying to make it when you're struggling, the importance of staying true to your roots, and how she's redefined humor online. This special Audible edition includes never-before-heard details about the making of Abbott Elementary, the cast, the writers' room, and how the show inadvertently created hundreds of new roles for young Black actors.

Quinta Brunson is a master at breaking the internet. Before having any traditional background in media, her humorous videos were the first to go viral on Instagram’s platform. From there, Brunson’s wryly observant POV helped cement her status in the comedy world at large, with roles on HBO, Netflix, ABC, Adult Swim, BuzzFeed, the CW, and Comedy Central. Now, Brunson is bringing her comedic chops to the page in She Memes Well, an earnest, laugh-out-loud collection about this unusual road to notoriety.

In her debut essay collection, Quinta applies her trademark humor and heart to discuss what it was like to go from a girl who loved the World Wide Web to a girl whose face launched a thousand memes. With anecdotes that range from the ridiculous—like the time she decided to go clubbing wearing an outfit she describes as "Gary Coleman meets metrosexual pirate"—to more heartfelt material about her struggles with depression, Quinta's voice is entirely authentic and eminently enjoyable. With its intimate tone and hilarious moments, She Memes Well will make you feel as if you're sitting down with your chillest, funniest friend.

Loved the epilogue

She is just a great narrator... Should narrate more books.
Loved the epilogue... More of a chat instead of reading...

So much more than a meme

Quinta Brunson truly brings her razor to the game. Unlike middle school, she uses her sharp wit to cut through some of the craziness of her childhood, and the questionable legitimacy of her formidable years of early schooling. The details of her career path, and balancing it out with a Family she truly loves and appreciates radiates through every chapter. Having known of some of her early BuzzFeed videos, it is truly wonderful to see her voice and sensibilities ring through with Abbott Elementary.

I’m not only looking forward to seeing what she does in the future, but would love to collaborate with her as well.

Relatable

Really enjoyed this I literally powered through it in a few days. I’m also a huge lover of comedy specifically Even Stevens and Napoleon Dynamite. I’ve also watched Abbott from the beginning and have rematches a few episodes with my Dad. Listening to this book really boosted my spirits which have been low lately. Thank you Quinta you rock!

A little all over, but overall really good!

Quinta tends to jump from timeline to timeline. But once your used to it, the book becomes fun, and you discover a lot about her unique claim to fame. Overall, good listen!
