Where Am I Now? True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame, by Mara Wilson


This slight book of essays covers quite a bit of ground, from Wilson’s childhood movie acting and her neurotic childhood, to her teen dating and her increasing interest in storytelling as an adult. She writes most clearly of her growing understanding of who she is and how she becomes at peace with her life and her choices.

Overall a really lovely memoir both for those who remember Mara’s youthful fame and also for those who don’t. Her work is specific to her life, but it would be a jaded reader indeed who would not find resonances in his or her own life. For 18 and up.
