"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 bestselling author of We're Going to Need More Wine

"Quinta Brunson may meme well, but to limit her to just being an Internet personality would be a disservice to you and her. She (and this book) are equal parts hilarious and thoughtful. I'm a fan of Quinta as a writer, as a performer and, most importantly, as a person. I promise after reading her book, you will be a fan too."
--Nick Kroll, actor, comedian, and producer

"A gloriously insightful, gut-busting glimpse into the brilliant mind of the internet's golden child herself. She Memes Well is a beautiful trip down memory lane and an inspiring nudge to any creative looking to make their own eternal imprint, online or off."
--Issa Rae, Golden Globe-nominated actress (Insecure) and New York Times bestselling author of The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl

"The luminescent Quinta Brunson, who has already captivated the hearts of internet and television viewers alike, now hammers home her brilliance with the written word. One thing that really stuck with me was her age when she first saw Chocolate Rain. She is very young. Enjoy."
--Chelsea Peretti, comedian and actor

"In this hilarious and poignant memoir, comedian Brunson shares her head and her heart for readers who may only know her face from the internet...Brunson's razor-sharp wit and gratitude for her extraordinary life leap off every page. Perfect for fans of Bossypants and Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl."
