Gabourey Sidibe - "Gabby" to her legion of fans - skyrocketed to international fame in 2009 when she played the leading role in Lee Daniels' acclaimed movie Precious. In This Is Just My Face, she shares a one-of-a-kind life story in a voice as fresh and challenging as many of the unique characters she's played onscreen. With full-throttle honesty, Sidibe paints her Bed-Stuy/Harlem family life with a polygamous father and a gifted mother who supports her two children by singing in the subway.

I laughed out loud and shed tears while listening to Gabourey Sidibe narrate a window into her her thoughts and experiences. I am so glad that true intelligence and talent is rising to the top instead of the usual cookie cutter size-2 celebrities. Artist like her make me have hope that our world is on the road to becoming color, size and gender blind.

Very repetitive. Watered down. Get to the point please. Was this book longer in order to charge more? Disliked it in the first 20-minutes.
