Publisher's Summary

Teen dance prodigy, breakout Dance Moms star, and judge on So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation presents her uplifting coming-of-age memoir about following her dreams and working hard to achieve success in both the dance world and in life.

Maddie Ziegler had hoped to become a star - she just didn't know how soon that day would come. At just eight years old, she was cast on Lifetime's hit reality show Dance Moms and quickly won the hearts of fans everywhere with her natural talent and determination. Soon she was catching eyes all over - including those of pop superstar Sia, who handpicked her to star in the incredibly popular music video "Chandelier". The rest, as they say, was history.

In this inspirational memoir, Maddie explains the hard work she puts into her rise to stardom and how she keeps her balance along the way - starring in music videos, going on tour, and becoming an actress in The Book of Henry with Naomi Watts and Jacob Tremblay. She also answers her fans' burning questions with wise advice she's learned on her journey. With honesty, charm, and humor, Maddie offers her unique perspective on making her way in the world as a young teenager, reflecting on the lessons she's learned - and preparing for the exciting road ahead.

One of the best books I've read

Hi, I'm Pamela, I'm from Mexico but now I'm living in Paris, once I new that Maddie wrote I book I preordered here in Paris to have it, then I found that the audio book was read by Maddie, and I had to buy it as well. Honestly it's one of the best books that I'd read (listen) and it just amazed me that it was written by a 14 year old, even though I'm 23, I can totally relate to things that Maddie has lived and felt, 100% recommended!!

Need more content

My problem with this book is that doesn't have too much contest, most chapter is just Maddie talking about the tv shows she is seeing or recommendation of make up, or people talking about her, and actually she have a lot more to talk about not only make up, clothes and netflix, like for example how she got better in dance, how she gain flexibility, or her musicality, her parents brake up. 

Even though she have interesting reflexions what media does it would be considerate bullying in school, or how to kids is also hard know that they are growing up and doesn't need her

Maddie is an inspiration and wonderful role model🌼

I have watched dance moms since the beginning and Maddie was always my favorite. She has grown into such a smart, talented and sweet young lady. This book was very enjoyable and I would recommend it to everyone.
