    In this luminous memoir, Rita Moreno shares her remarkable journey from a young girl with simple beginnings in Puerto Rico to Hollywood legend - and one of the few performers, and the only Hispanic, to win an Oscar, Grammy, Tony, and two Emmys. Born Rosita Dolores Alverio in the idyll of Puerto Rico, Moreno, at age five, embarked on a harrowing sea voyage with her mother and wound up in the harsh barrios of the Bronx, where she discovered dancing, singing, and acting as ways to escape a tumultuous childhood.

    What did you love best about Rita Moreno?

    I enjoyed her humor, the impersonations and the overall narration was fantastic. Her voice and storytelling made for a very enjoyable listening experience (I've listened to the book twice already).


    What other book might you compare Rita Moreno to and why?

    Since this book I realized that all narrators aren't as engaging, clear or entertaining... I really enjoyed her story and the life lessons she shared with the reader/listener.


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

    This was my very first audiobook and first memoir via Audible. I appreciated and enjoyed the candor with which she described her life and life lessons, it felt conversational and honest. It was a wonderful purchase, very glad it was my first audiobook. I thoroughly enjoyed her life's ups and downs (as she told it), the book made me laugh, reflect and cry. She's a strong, talented and funny woman. Thank you Rita Moreno.
