""Growing up, I wanted to BE Mara Wilson. Where Am I Now? is a delight." --Ilana Glazer, cocreator and star of Broad City "Genuine and authentic, funny and heartbreaking, Where Am I Now? reminds you that no matter how unique your life is, some things bind us all together." --Jenny Lawson, author of Furiously Happy A former child actress best known for her starring roles in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire, Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and out of place: as the onlykid on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, a Valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and a grown-up the world still remembers as a little girl. Tackling everything fromwhat she learned about sex on the set of Melrose Place, to discovering in adolescence that she was no longer "cute" enough for Hollywood, these essays chart her journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity. They also illuminate universal struggles, like navigating love and loss, and figuring out who you are and where you belong. Honest, insightful, and hilarious, Where Am I Now? introduces Mara Wilson as a brilliant new chronicler of the experience that is growing up young and female"-- Provided by publisher.

While I enjoyed the story, I am not sure it works as an audiobook. Mara Wilson is an excellent narrator but I found this one difficult to follow as the story jumps around a fair bit chronologically. The story itself is solid, but I would recommend the print copy if that is an option for you.
