Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Busy is a legit writer with a voice as clear as a bell. This book is honest, funny, intimate, and well-observed by a person who has observed some sh*t.” Tina Fey, #1 New York Times bestseller author
“To know Busy Philipps is to love Busy Philipps (and follow her on Instagram). And now, it’s also to read her funny, refreshingly candid memoir about Hollywood, motherhood, and BFFhood (with her Dawson’s Creek castmate Michelle Williams, of course).” Cosmopolitan
“Philipps paints a picture of what it’s like to be a woman in the world of acting, from sexism to body shaming to juggling parenthood and career in a celebrity memoir that stands apart in a crowded field.” Library Journal
