Good autobiography of an actor’s life

Entertaining and captivating story of an actor’s life journey. Rae and Strauss worked their selected stories into a solid narrative of history, actor’s journey and family. Rae hit every note of her performance beautifully, but I did listen at 1.2 speed to shorten the pauses. Worth a listen.

Facts of life show barely mentioned!

As a fan of both Facts of Life and Different Strokes, I was disappointed that there was very little content of either show. Also the ending of this book seems abrupt and anti-climactic. If you’re interested in how Charlotte Rae grew up and her early work, this is a good read.

Absolutely Amazing!

I loved this book! I've always been a huge facts of life fan and have always adored Charlotte Rae. This book makes me love her even more and makes me miss her tremendously. She was such a kind and caring woman and a truly talented one. She has so many lovable quirks and mannerisms and it feels like Charlotte is really talking to you. Definitely a good read! Miss you Charlotte R.I.P <3

Rest in peace, Mrs Garrett

I grew up watching Charlotte Rae on The Facts of Life. She's had a very interesting life, much of which meant juggling her life with her autistic son. I never knew any of her back story and very much enjoyed learning more about her.
