"Enthralling."--Robin Young, NPR's Here and Now
"A candid personal narrative, in which Moore fills in not only the details surrounding the most visible parts of her history ... but the portions of her life that she once fought to protect.... It is surprising to see such self-revelation from any prominent Hollywood actress--let alone one with Moore's particular accomplishments and setbacks."--Dave Itzkoff, New York Times
"Her story is equal parts adversity and resilience, told with candor."--Barbara Vandenburgh, USA Today
"To Moore's great credit, she tells her story frankly but also with dignity, tact and generosity toward the important people in her life.... This discretion is emblematic of a memoir that is sometimes shocking but never salacious.... The actress in person proves to be very much like the woman on the page: thoughtful, questioning, at times openly insecure, but also forthright, often bracingly so. ... Is it OK that I'm here? That question seems to linger, along with How did I get here? If the book is intended, consciously or not, as an answer to both, it's a good and strong one."--Bruce Handy, Wall Street Journal
"What you get from this book that you can't get anywhere else isn't the rags-to-riches story but rather the honest and arresting way she details her slow drift into a different kind of emotional poverty, the sort that only decades of tabloid harassment and unchecked trauma can alchemize. She narrates, with the precision of a butcher's knife, her divorces, addiction, and eventual isolation, but from this she pulls forth her most potent character yet: a fully formed, gives-no-fucks woman of wisdom."--Lena Dunham, Harper's Bazaar
"Astonishingly candid.... A fabulously frank and well-written book and, after such rollercoaster of a ride one finds oneself in awe of Moore for determinedly clinging on."--The Sunday Times
"The actress gets candid in a way few modern A-listers have.... Poignant."--People
