Description

A refreshingly honest, wonderfully humorous, and entirely inspiring exploration of change, fear, and what it really means to be alone from everyone’s favorite TikTok oracle, Devrie Donalson.

With a following of over 800,000 across social media—who share with her as much as she shares with them—Devrie has learned that everyone can be scared to feel alone. Anyone can struggle with and question who they are or feel the sudden hunger to start over and become someone new. Through her TikTok videos she has shared a small part of her own journey—including leaving her unsatisfying life behind and flying to Scotland—but in her first book Devrie shares some of the deeper insight her followers have been looking for.

Through a collection of stories and reflections, this book paints a portrait of a person who has tried, failed, and tried again, and creates a map for readers as they make their own journey towards finding home within themselves. With her signature wit and humor, Devrie is vulnerable and honest about some pretty gritty stuff—like accepting the rejection of others even when you don’t understand the reasons, reconciling feminism and Brazilian bikini waxes, being a twenty-nine year old virgin, and losing your religion. There’s also a true ghost story, emo teenage poetry, and even footnotes, but only about important stuff like Beanie Babies and the disappointing lack of showmanship from the billionaire class. So, you know, something for everyone.

Perfect for fans of Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Jenny Lawson, You’re Gonna Die Alone (& Other Excellent News) is for anyone who wants to build a life they are proud of, but might be afraid of what it takes to get there. In these pages readers will find a little laughter, a little healing, and (hopefully) the courage to reimagine what it means to be alone.

Devrie Donalson

Storyteller and social media fast-talker, Devrie Donalson, is best known for her witty, relatable, feminist-toned videos that are equal parts heart and humor. On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, Donalson quit her job as a florist and flew to Scotland without much of a plan but the intention to build a life she could be proud of and to find the feeling of being at home. She has been interviewed by BBC, and her travels have been covered by dozens of news outlets in the UK.
