Simon & Schuster

In this inspiring and hilarious memoir, YouTube star Ricky Dillon gives you an exciting look into his personal life and reveals the ins and outs of being a young star online.

Have you ever picked up a new instrument and tried learning to play your favorite song? Or found out exactly how much sour candy you can possibly eat in one sitting? Or given yourself permission to be friendly to a total stranger who looked sad?

Ricky Dillon has, and in Follow Me, he invites you to join him on a series of challenges—from serious, contemplative tasks to hilarious, outrageous stunts—that are bound to stretch your mind (as well as your muscles) and change your life for the better.

Sure, trying something new or putting yourself out there—facing the unknown—can be scary, but Ricky himself understands what it’s like to face life’s great obstacles. He also knows that every day offers chances to try something new, to push yourself a little farther, and to get a little stronger both inside out.

Along with the challenges, Follow Me also ushers readers into Ricky’s real life, sharing exactly how he creates his videos, what it’s like collaborating with other YouTube stars, what his family and friends mean to him, and how he juggles all of his creative endeavors—from music to fitness to writing and beyond—while keeping a positive attitude and appreciating all of life’s adventures, big and small.

Inspiring, informative, and incredibly fun, Follow Me is not just a book but a full-on reading experience from one of our most beloved and hardworking social media stars.

About the Book


Another youtuber book and I can already hear all the URGHs.

I can understand why all of them are releasing books. They have publicity which means it can sell and it’s an effective way for them to send a message and tell their own story.

Ricky Dillon’s book gets straight to the point and is sprinkled with fun challenges here and there. I have to say his story is very relatable. There wasn’t any sort of significant trauma that led to his Youtube beginnings, it was mostly the desire to connect to more individuals. His character really resonates throughout the book. He’s the sort of person with a close bunch of friends but honestly loves to spend time with himself. I think we can all relate to that.

Throughout his book, he talks about his love for working out, the journey Youtube has brought him into, his friends and family and overall, how he managed to find himself. It’s a very heartwarming story full of hope and optimism that definitely gives you all the happy feels!!!

It’s a simple, short reads for anyone who’s needs something to read or is in between an intense read and needs a break.
