Overview

Glee star Jenna Ushkowitz, a.k.a. "Tina," inspires fans to invoke positive thinking into everything they do in this inspirational scrapbook.

Time to Gleek out!

Fans of the breakout musical series will flock to Ushkowitz’s heartfelt and practical guide on how to be your true self, gain self-esteem, and find your inner confidence. In Choosing Glee, Jenna shares her life in thrall to performance, navigating the pendulum swing of rejection and success, and the lessons she learned along the way. Included are her vivid anecdotes of everything before and after Glee: her being adopted from South Korea; her early appearances in commercials and on Sesame Street; her first Broadway role in The King and I; landing the part of Tina on Glee; her long-time friendships with Lea Michele (a.k.a. Rachel Berry) and Kevin McHale (a.k.a. Artie); and touring the world singing the show’s hits to stadium crowds. Peppered throughout are photos, keepsakes, lists, and charts that illustrate Jenna's life and the choices she has made that have shaped her positive outlook.

Choosing Glee will speak to the show's demographic who are often coping with the very stresses and anxieties the teenage characters on Glee face. Think The Happiness Project for a younger generation: With its uplifting message and intimate format, teens can learn how, exactly, to choose glee.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I've known Jenna since we were eight years old. She's always known who she is and always has a smile on her face and has made all her dreams come true. I couldn't imagine a better person to write a book like this." —Lea Michele 

“Jenna's joy radiates through everything she does. This book embodies what Glee is about; being true yourself and following your dreams.” —Ryan Murphy, Glee co-creator

Library Journal
Glee star Ushkowitz, aka Tina, presents younger readers with a prescription for happiness. Using a scrapbook format comprised of black-and-white photographs and drawings, she lists ten inspirational rules for achieving happiness, such as being oneself, expecting the unexpected, doing one's best, and having the courage to make mistakes. She touches on "happy" foods, toxic friends, and fair fighting. VERDICT Ideal for tween girls and Glee fans but a little glib for others.

    I'm a Glee fan and I love Jenna's acting and voice. I preordered

    I'm a Glee fan and I love Jenna's acting and voice. I preordered this book, and I am so glad I did! This is a half self-help/half memoir-ish book, and it's so wonderful. Jenna has a genuine, optimistic personality and so much talent. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to improve their life, or even just their day.
