Former child actress Mara Wilson (Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire) has always felt out of place: the only child on a film set full of adults; a first daughter in a house of boys; and now, as an adult the world still remembers as a little girl. Wilson’s new book of autobiographical essays tackles everything from losing her mother at a young age, to not being “cute” enough for Hollywood. It’s the story of one young woman’s journey from accidental fame to happy obscurity. Wilson offers a contemplation on learning to accept yourself and figuring out where you belong.
