Chrissy Metz grew up in a large family, one that always seemed to be moving, and growing. Her father disappeared one day, leaving her mother to work a series of menial jobs and his children to learn to live with the threat of hunger and the electricity being cut off. When her mother remarried, Chrissy hoped for “normal” but instead experienced a form of mental pain that seemed crafted just for her. The boys who showed her attention did so with strings attached as well, and Chrissy accepted it, because for her, love always came with conditions. When she set out for Los Angeles, it was the first time she had been away from her family and from Florida. For years, she got barely an audition. With chapters that alternate from autobiographical to instructional, Chrissy offers practical applications of her hard-won insights. She invites you to embrace gratitude in “Say Thank You” or to be honest with your partner and yourself in “The Shrouded Supreme.” Blending love and experience, Chrissy encourages us all to claim our rightful place in a world that may be trying to knock us down, find our own unique gifts, and pursue our dreams.

Similar to other autobiographies written by stars this is a quick trip through her life and it turns out her life is a bit interesting, but there is nothing insightful here. Maybe she is still on the journey and so there isn’t much to reflect on, but with the exception of getting the role of This is Us she hadn’t accomplished much in her life and I don’t mean in the realm of acting. There isn’t much here in her doing anything out of the ordinary to separate her from anyone else you bump into on the street. Maybe I expected a lot more. This just didn’t seem to add up to much of anything.

Insightful memoir, wanted to hear more about "This Is Us" and less about dysfunctional family life but liked hearing about her journey to self-acceptance.

TV personality Chrissy Metz writes of her struggle with abuse and fat and tells us how she comes to the place she is at now. Each of us can relate to some aspect of her struggle and this makes for poignant reading.

Violence: Chrissy speaks on how her stepfather physically abused her. Not in a lot of detail, but it was not for young readers.
