Book

First edition.

"A funny, biting, and entertaining memoir about coming of age in the shadow of celebrity and finding your own way in the face of absolute chaos, one that is both a moving portrait of a complicated family and an exploration of the cost of fame." --
"Roseanne Barr's success as a comedian catapulted the family from the Rockies to star-studded Hollywood, with its toxic culture of money, celebrity, and prying tabloids that was destabilizing for a child in grade school. Many of the storylines for her mother's smash hit series, Roseanne, were drawn from Pentland's early family life in working-class Denver. As Jenny struggled with anxiety and eating issues, her parents and new stepfather responded by sending Jenny and her siblings to fat camps, wilderness survival programs, drug rehab clinics. In her scathingly funny and moving memoir, Pentland reveals what it is like to grow up as the daughter of a television star, and how she has worked tirelessly to create the stable family she never had, while coming to terms at last with her deep-seated anxiety." --Adapted from jacket.
