    Ginger Kid is the remarkable coming of age memoir

    Ginger Kid is the remarkable coming of age memoir by YouTube personality and Stand-up comedian, Steve Hofstetter. The stories he relates of his high school years and growing up in New York City vary from the awkwardness of first crushes to the honesty of living with an eating disorder. I found so much I could relate to in this book. Many of the stories within these pages were poignant reminders of situations I faced or people I knew as a teenager. It made me so nostalgic. This is not something that often happens to me with either memoirs or coming of age novels—growing up in South Africa is a vastly different cultural experience from growing up in the US. Hofstetter has a way of using wry humour to translate the fundamentals of teenage social hierarchy that’s both universally true and hilariously accurate. Ginger Kid is a book of adventure, the losses and triumphs of high school, and growing into oneself. One day, I’m going to press this book into my son’s hands with the knowledge that it may help him understand the things a child refuses to hear from their parents.
