Lisa Jakub had what she was supposed to want: She was a working actor in Los Angeles. She had more than 40 movies and TV shows to her name. She had been in blockbusters like Mrs. Doubtfire and Independence Day. She walked the red carpet and lived in the house she had bought when she was 15. But something was missing. Passion. Purpose. Happiness. In this funny and insightful book, Lisa chronicles the adventures of growing up in the film industry and her difficult decision to leave behind the only life she had ever known.

About a girl who was really good at something she didn't want to do. I was impressed with how well in touch she was with her feelings and weaknesses. She fought them for a while and tried to change, but finally realized who she was and moved on. Congratulations.
