GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER: BEST MEMOIR & AUTOBIOGRAPHY
A laugh-and-cry-out-loud memoir from the beloved star of Netflix’s Queer Eye, Jonathan Van Ness
Who gave Jonathan Van Ness permission to be the radiant human he is today? No one, honey.
The truth is, it hasn’t always been gorgeous for this beacon of positivity and joy.
Before he stole our hearts as the grooming and self-care expert on Netflix’s hit show Queer Eye, Jonathan was growing up in a small Midwestern town that didn’t understand why he was so…over the top. From choreographed carpet figure skating routines to the unavoidable fact that he was Just. So. Gay., Jonathan was an easy target and endured years of judgement, ridicule and trauma—yet none of it crushed his uniquely effervescent spirit.
Over the Top uncovers the pain and passion it took to end up becoming the model of self-love and acceptance that Jonathan is today. In this revelatory, raw, and rambunctious memoir, Jonathan shares never-before-told secrets and reveals sides of himself that the public has never seen. JVN fans may think they know the man behind the stiletto heels, the crop tops, and the iconic sayings, but there’s much more to him than meets the Queer Eye.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll come away knowing that no matter how broken or lost you may be, you’re a Kelly Clarkson song, you’re strong, and you’ve got this.

An interesting read, JVN has obviously been through some hardships and to come out with the positive attitude he shows every day is a triumph.
The writing however, leaves some things to be desired. Some quotes are beautiful and well written, whereas other sections are very much filler and seem rushed, as if he didn't want to write it or didn't have time.
"When you're a survivor of abuse, living in chaos can be the most upsetting yet comforting thing in the world."
Imagine my delight, therefore, when the delightful JVN released his autobiography. Obviously I don't actually know him, and I don't read celebrity crap in the media - for all I know he could be a tellybastard - but he comes across as a puppy on the show so I was totally here for his book.
Admittedly JVN was only 32 when he wrote his autobiography, so there's not a massive amount of actual timespan compared to, say, an autobiography by David Attenborough, but he still manages to pack a lot of content in. And what content. Sounds like JVN had a super supportive upbringing and even then he's had a bunch of struggles and heartache.
I enjoyed this so much- it rattles along really well and JVN writes exactly as he speaks so it had me laughing out loud a bunch of times.
