Publisher's Summary

A revelatory and touching tribute to the lives of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds written by the person who knew them best, Todd Fisher’s poignant memoir is filled with moving stories of growing up among Hollywood royalty.

In December 2016, the world was shaken by the sudden deaths of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds, two unspeakable losses that occurred in less than 24 hours. The stunned public turned for solace to Debbie’s only remaining child, Todd Fisher, who somehow retained his grace and composure under the glare of the media spotlight as he struggled with his own overwhelming grief.

The son of "America’s Sweethearts" Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, Todd grew up amid the glamorous wealth and pretense of Hollywood. Thanks to his funny, loving, no-nonsense mother, Todd remained down to earth, his own man, but always close to his cherished mom, and to his sister through her meteoric rise to stardom and her struggle with demons that never diminished her humor, talent, or spirit.

Now, Todd shares his heart and his memories of Debbie and Carrie with deeply personal stories from his earliest years to those last unfathomable days. His book, part memoir, part homage, celebrates their legacies through a more intimate, poignant, and often hilarious portrait of these two remarkable women than has ever been revealed before.

Todd’s book is a love letter to a sister and a mother, and a gift to countless fans who are mourning the deaths of these two unforgettable stars.

Could not stop listneing!

I have been a long time fan of Debbie and Carrie so I was excited to see this book by Todd Fisher was out. I did worry that it would be just the same stories that Debbie and Carrie have already written about in their books. Though there are a couple of stories that Todd retells it's from his point of view mostly and it makes the whole story even more interesting.

I have often wondered why Todd was the only one who has not written a book and you find out why in My Girls. I cannot say enough about how great this book is. Todd really knows who to draw you into the book and keep you wanting more. I learned so much more about them all. Very much like his mom's and sisters books, Todd's book made me laugh, cry and I feel like I was right there with Todd the whole journey of his life stories with Debbie, Carrie and most of all Todd's story, that has never been told, until now.

As a fan, I thank you, Todd, for writing this book. It's a must read/listen!!

Loved

Loved loved loved.
I laughed. I cried. I’ve read all his sisters books and seen most of her films. I love audiobooks where the author reads his own words. This book was insightful of a family that been through quite crazy adventures. Highly recommend for a good lazy weekend. The last 2 chapters had me in TEARS.

TRULY A GREAT BOOK

After listening to Todd Fisher's MY GIRLS, A lifetime with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds you will never envy anyone again. I enjoyed this listen more than most celebrity books. In fact, I can safely say, MY GIRLS is the best autobiography of three of the most interesting people in Show Business. The third of course is Todd Fisher, the only son of Debbie and the one sister that Todd adored. At times I felt that I was listening to the most truthful telling of a story that has captivated the world for more than sixty five years.

This book is worth owning! After your first listen you will want to hear it again at a later date. Usually an author that reads his or hers own works are boring and dull. However, Todd Fisher did a fantastic job narrating his own work. It felt real to the point of making me cry, laugh, and lastly never to be jealous of anyone's life or envy people you may perceive have it all, because they don't. It's easy to perceive in our own minds that money, fame, or great success makes us happy. DON'T BELIEVE THIS FOOLISH LIE! IT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE!!!

I always felt jealousy was a wasted emotion. After reading this book. or listening in this case, I really came to believe all of us are basically the same. Pitfalls in life exist in everyone, including the rich and the famous...that are often worse than our own life's experiences.


I have no idea how Todd turned out to be a kind and generous soul he became as an adult. In fact, I commend Todd for this one accomplishment...that speaking for me only, I probably never would have achieved.

This is a book not to be missed. It's worth more than one credit! You will not be able to stop listening to MY GIRLS! It's simply a wonderful story.

Thank you for reading my review. I know after you hear it you will agree.
Best,
Steve

Great Listen But...

I never was able to get over the author’s sad, self-justifying co-dependence on his mom and sister. Some of the stories of his ridiculously privileged and obnoxious teenage years were so tone deaf and out of touch, it repelled me. But as he matured and became more self aware I started to enjoy it more. Quite a life. Just didn’t seem like HIS.
