Overview

Jonathan Van Ness is known for serving up Jesus-chic realness with a side of self-love as the stylist on the hit Netflix show Queer Eye. But before he was Jonathan Van Ness, the world-famous body positive and gender nonconforming queer TV personality, he was just Jack from Quincy, Illinois.

As an insecure midwestern kid who suffered sexual abuse, Jack was a far cry from the iconic JVN that audiences know and love today. In this book, Van Ness gives fans an up-close look into his dark past, which includes his parents' divorce, sexual abuse, multiple addictions, and an HIV diagnosis. Over the Top is full of lessons in self-love, and a call for change for the LGBTQIA+ community.

"When you have this much personality, there's a fear lurking just below the surface: if you knew all of me, you wouldn't love me anymore. You would no longer want me as your new best friend."
