Synopsis

Wise Girl What I've Learned About Life, Love, and Loss by Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Sheryl Berk

I am so proud to be Jamie's 'dad.' She is not only a talented actress but also a bright, generous, and inspiring young lady. -- James Gandolfini Jamie-Lynn Sigler definitely knows how to inspire people....I'm grateful to call her my friend. -- Lance Bass, *N'SYNC SHE'S YOUNG, TALENTED, BEAUTIFUL AND FAMOUS. BUT NOTHING IS THAT SIMPLE... Everyone knows Jamie-Lynn Sigler as Meadow Soprano on the HBO hit television series The Sopranos. But there's so much more to her, as her candid, outspoken autobiography proves. In Wise Girl, Jamie-Lynn reveals both the perks and the pressures that have come with fame, and how uncertain, fearful times have made her stronger, more confident, and able to face life's challenges. Writing openly and from the heart, she describes the emotional and physical toll taken when Lyme disease left the healthy 19-year-old paralyzed at the height of The Soprano's popularity; an obsession with her weight that nearly destroyed her career; and the dark side of overnight success. Her story will both surprise and inspire you. For this wise girl, the key to success isn't just what's on the outside -- it's using your brains, going with your gut, and learning from your experiences, including the mistakes, every day.
