Is this child Jonathan speaking, or adult Jonathan, currently writing the book, reflecting on child Jonathan’s thoughts - a different font or colour perhaps may have helped here. And I cant help but think that the majority of the reviews are from people who already had a disliking to the man from his other platforms and ventures. Had to take my time reading the early chapters as it was so hard to read about Jonathan's early years, as he was the same age as my daughter is now.

Traumatic memories are, by their nature, deeply harmful and traumatic and the human brain usually represses these memories. I hope that he’s managed to get the help he needs and can continue being his authentic self with his family, who sound lovely.I feel like a lot of celebs and non celebs bring out a book as it's the next step for them, but sometimes just because you can doesn't mean you should. Not that he is an adult and a father and on social platforms how does he see himself is he trans, is he a man with a feminine side. In All My Friends are Invisible, Jonathan Joly, known widely as one of social media's most successful content creators, shares the secret he's kept hidden these many years. One should not gender everything these days, but the book feels as if it were the confidences of a woman.

Most kids have coping mechanisms when they have been abused and a lot of kids had invisible friends growing up. For example, I couldn’t tell you what I wore when I was 3 and exactly what people said and did and how I felt.

I have been in a reading slump for the last couple of months and have got maybe 2 or 3 chapters in and DNFed a lot of books, but this was different - I couldn’t put it down, and had I not started it late at night, I think I could have read in one sitting. I am aware that the author of this book will attempt to frame this review as 'hate' or 'gaslighting', rather than just an honest review that I have written after reading this book. It's worth noting that a number of the unverified reviews will be those notoriously hinging their life on bringing down Jonathan and his family by any means possible. uk/landing-page/quercus/quercus-company-information/">The data controller is Quercus Editions Ltd. Jonathan's invisible friends were his lifeline, and on that day at the airport, they came flooding back, and have remained with him to this day.

Mostly, I am heartbroken for every queer storyteller who has been struggling to find a publisher/agent to publish their story, while this book gets published – presumably – due to what I believe to be a significant social media following. I really do hope that Jonathan seeks professional help, as what ever the cause of "Domidie" is it deserves help and treatment. Having watched The Sacconejoly’s lives for roughly 8 years, I felt a lot more connected to this book than other early reviews I’ve seen. In Joly's case, he was uncomfortable with the way that school uniforms were used to categorize binary gender identities based on a student's sex assigned at birth; Joly had to wear a male school uniform with pants.

In fact I have read autobiographies of extremely talented and well-admired celebrities that come across far more humble than this. No structure and it’s all over the place ,hope the person who wrote it seeks help for his mental health as it certainly sounds like he needs it. The anecdotes are extremely vivid and detailed - narrating almost minute by minute, word for word of a day that happened to a 4 year old, over 30 years ago.

People who may have enjoyed the presentation of him as an ordinary husband and father will be fascinated to see this aspect of his personality, one that was repressed for much of his life but has become visible to all. The author seems to think that hearing about his life, which was neither unusual or particularly terrible, will save people but I think quite the opposite. All My Friends Are Invisible deals with themes of psychology, queerness, the digital gig economy, fatherhood, gender identity and conservative social norms.I will not go into the specifics but encouraging his fans to accept these kind of hallucinations is truly worrying. Joly seems to be talking of very cliché things here, eg doesn't want to play football as it's for boys, and doesn't want to go to a boys school as he gets on with girls better despite having friends and sisters outside of school. Anti-Escapism Aesop: Jonathan Joly's fantasy world is induced often whether he wants it or not, as a coping mechanism to escape the harshness and conformity of reality. You will not be mistaken to chose this book and hopefully a series as it helps people find belonging, felt understood and the possibility life really can bring. The story was a little hard to follow at times as we seemed to jump from past Jonathan to current Jonathan with next to no warning, which sadly pulled me out of reading it.
