I met Lisa Jakub at a conference and even though I wasn't supposed to be buying nonfiction, she was so down to earth and interesting to listen to that I broke my resolve. While I'm not sure I would have recognized her, I did, of course, love Mrs. Doubtfire. Not only was Lisa an excellent actress, she is a beautiful writer. She tells her story without naming names and blaming her hard life on other people. She has beautiful imagery: " Love flies into the stage lights like a moth, and dies in a puff of smoke." or "If we can just remember that people are all fundamentally the same, it doesn't make any sense to grab a kid from a party like she's a gift bag." (You'll have to read the book to find out the story.) This book relates to all of us who at times have ended up doing something because it was what we fell into or what was expected to us or who knows why. It talks about the courage it takes to break free, to try to start something new. So whether you're a bit starstruck or just a bit stuck, pick up You Look Like That Girl.
