    Rosie Perez first caught our attention with her fierce dance in the title sequence of Do the Right Thing and has since defined herself as a funny and talented actress who broke boundaries for Latinas in the film industry. What most people would be surprised to learn is that the woman with the big, effervescent personality has a secret straight out of a Dickens novel. At the age of three, Rosie’s life was turned upside down when her mentally ill mother tore her away from the only family she knew and placed her in a Catholic children’s home in New York’s Westchester County.

    Delah says: "Informative Memoir"
    "Brave and Honest"

    Would you listen to Handbook for an Unpredictable Life again? Why?

    Yes!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Rosie's honesty and the way her voice can make you feel what she felt.


    What does Rosie Perez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For me, listening to Rosie's voice narrating the book allowed me to feel like I was there... when she was 3 arriving at the home and every other place she takes us in her stories.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both! I can relate with Rosie's story in so many regards.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for deciding to write this book - you will touch many lives and perhaps even save others.
