This memoir by a former child actor details her struggles with eating disorders, addiction, and a tumultuous relationship with her overbearing mother who pushed her to become a star. Despite achieving fame on Nickelodeon, the author's anxiety and self-loathing only worsened. When her mother passed away from cancer, the author finally finds the strength to quit acting and embark on a journey of self-discovery and recovery. Told with refreshing honesty and dark humor, this memoir is an inspiring tale of resilience and independence.

While reading the incredible autobiography of Chris Blackwell, I learned that Ian Fleming wrote all 14 James Bond novels each winter for 6 weeks for 14 years. One book a year over 6 weeks. Can you even? #TheIslander #onelove 🇯🇲      fuente

En el jardín de las bestias
Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin
Erik Larson - 2011-05-10
Calificación de Goodreads
En el jardín de las bestias reconstruye el espíritu del Berlín de 1933 y se sumerge, echando mano de los recursos de la literatura, en la historia de unos años que fueron el embrión de una década de oscuridad y destrucción. Una historia que tiene como testigos a Williamd E. Dodd, embajador estadounidense en Alemania, y a su familia, quienes ignoraban que se estaban adentrando en el corazón del mayor germen de horror y violencia que la humanidad ha padecido en su historia reciente.

@msuster That is truly one of my most favorite books & a book I’ve recommended for years to everyone in my life. The Germans description of feeling “anesthetized” during the whole horror. People who didn’t have any issues with Jewish people say just they inexplicably swept up by Hitler.      fuente
