Sixteen-year-old Charli D’Amelio was living an ordinary life as a typical high school student in her hometown of Norwalk a little over a year ago. Today, she’s making social media history as the first person to officially hit 100 million followers on TikTok, having hit this milestone Nov. 22. And did we mention she’s publishing her first book?
The book, “Essentially Charli: The Ultimate Guide to Keeping it Real” which will be published by Abrams Books on Dec. 1, is filled with photos and stories of her life, being real and how she has dealt with cyberbullying and online haters. Her lifelong love of dancing, which is at the core of her viral TikTok videos, is featured, of course. In her quest to live her life authentically, she also offers advice for readers on how to deal with life’s challenges, the ins and outs of posting on social media and maintaining friendships in real life.
