In Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded, Hannah Hart bravely gives us the inside scoop on her childhood with a schizophrenic mom and a dad who was a Jehovah's Witness. Buffering is about a life taking care of the ones you love; about how mental illness rocked her family to the core; about differences in coping; about coming out and seeking love and comfort in another human being. The book is heavy, but not overbearing, as Hannah knows when to stop sharing. I appreciated her wisdom, maturity, and hope towards a better tomorrow. Recommended By Andy A., Powells.com

Hello, my darlings! I am incredibly pleased to present Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded!
As a big fan of memoirs, I wanted to try my hand at writing about the events of my life that deserve a little more consideration than can be accomplished in 140-characters or a 6-minute vlog. Now on the cusp of turning 30, I'm ready to expose some parts of my life that I haven't shared before. Before, it was all about privacy, process and time. And now the time has come! I'm ready to put myself out there, for you.
I'm a little nervous about all these vulnerable words going into the world, these tales about my love life, the wrestling I've done with faith, how I feel about sex and my family and myself. I've had a lot of trials, a lot of errors, but also a lot of passion. Here's the thing—I've always found comfort in the stories shared by others, so I hope my stories, now that I feel ready to tell them, will bring you some comfort too.
And when you read this book please remember: Buffering is just the time it takes to process.
