Jessica Simpson

by Michelle Medlock Adams

Hardcover(Library Binding)



Growing up in Richardson, Texas, Jessica Simpson would go to concerts and think, "Someday, I want to do exactly that!" Well, her someday finally arrived, but it wasn't without a few bumps along the way. When she was beat out for a spot on The New Mickey Mouse Club by Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, twelve-year-old Jessica wanted to give up, but her family encouraged her to keep going. Jessica was discovered two years later.

From gold albums to dream weddings to hit reality TV shows and movie roles, Jessica is living the celebrity fairytale life. But life hasn't always been easy. When her marriage to longtime boyfriend and singer Nick Lachey ended in divorce after only three years, Jessica had to regroup and press on. Her strong faith in God and her close-knit family have kept her grounded and focused. Jessica continues to touch lives everywhere she goes.
