I made my share of mistakes, which I think of as the stones I stepped on to get to where I am today, and through luck, hard work, serious reflection, and a desire to face the truth about myself, I ended up at a place where I now enjoy the peace that comes from allowing myself not to be perfect.
–Melissa Gilbert, Prairie Tale
my thoughts: a candid celebrity memoir, told in a refreshing tone. The child-actress turned SAG President lip-locks through the 80s and 90s, drops a ton of celeb names and then gets intense about her own adoption, marriage and drinking issues. Gilbert comes across as savvy, passionate and grounded even if she never spent any time in her life without a guy.
