“This book is hilarious and that bitch made me laugh out loud.”–Chelsea Handler

A chaotically joyous collection of essays from one of the original influencers and the internet’s sweetheart, Bretman The Baddest Rock.

Hilarious and earnest, this collection of essays, drawings, recipes, how-tos and never-before-seen photos goes far beyond what we know of Bretman Rock from social media. Who is Bretman Rock Sacayanan behind the screen and how did he become the original superstar influencer and today’s beloved best friend of the internet?

You’re That Bitch welcomes you into Bretman Rock’s world–from how his childhood in the Philippines, his family, Filipino culture, and being a first-generation immigrant helped shape him into who he is today. Peek into how Bretman became a social media sensation at the precocious age of 14, balancing living a glamorous jet-setting lifestyle on weekends while still serving lunch at his school’s cafeteria, running as a varsity track-star, and making honor roll during the week. With his signature honesty, this is an unfiltered and unprecedented look at what it means to be one of the first digital celebrities and that bitch—from dealing with cancel culture, drama and heartbreak, to what it means to love yourself and your community.

From the funniest and undeniably cutest person on the internet, this is a book for the weirdos and for the bad bitches . . . this book is for you!

Personal Thoughts:

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I finished this along with The Amityville Horror earlier today while waiting for my doctor, and I must say, this was such a hilarious read. I love how relatable Bretman’s story is, not only to us Filipinos, but also to most Asians.

You’re That Bitch is an inspiring memoir about one’s journey to reach their goals and dreams; but it’s also about self-love and family and life.

It’s entertaining to listen to an unproblematic influencer tell their story with such genuine happiness and just being himself. It’s refreshing, funny, and very moving. I highly recommend this!
