Publisher's Summary

Funny, feisty and fabulous, Em Rusciano's insights into her world of mayhem, marriage and motherhood are a laugh-out-loud, cry-out-loud balm for the soul.

From her exploits at the Miss Sheila Fancypants School of Dance and her efforts to secure a solo at her end-of-year performance to embracing the spotlight as an Australian Idol contestant and her deep and abiding love for John Farnham, Em Rusciano is a self-confessed bottomless pit of anxiety with a taste for glitter.

Try Hard...Fun-tastic!

Its a great story, truthful and entertaining. Em captures growing up in Melbourne perfectly and I would highly recommend Try Hard (perfect title).

love this lady. The book is so genuine.

You just want to go party and be a mum with her. I find her story incredible and it shows off you put yourself out there and be determined you can achieve your dreams. She is my mum and person goals.

This book was amazing!

This made me Laugh and made me cry. Being able to listen to Em and how she was feeling in her voice made it even more real in parts I could imagine her siting at her computer typing with tears down her face. Love you Em

AMAZING

I didn't know what to expect from this book. I have seen Em at her shows and love her to bits but I dont normally like memoirs/life stories. This suprised me as it was entertaining, funny and very enjoyable. Her honesty and Aussie humour made this a great choice.

Listening gives the words so much more depth.

Em is a bit zany and loose, but her book was hilarious to read. Listening to it gives it even more depth, as she doesn’t hold back - she shows her emotions and you can hear how visceral some of her emotions around her recent life events have been. If you are a fan of Em, definitely take the time to listen to this. If you’re not a fan of Em, but like funny, real women telling their stories, definitely take the time to listen to this.
