“I am always in search of the book I can’t put down. Well, thanks to Melissa Francis, I FOUND it. I may have missed a few nights sleep, but I am so much better for it. Her book is captivating, revealing and ultimately healing. Who knew the kid from Little House on the Prairie had such a fascinating real-life story? I am in awe.”
"Chilling memoir by a Fox Business Network anchor and child star chronicles the misery of growing up with a cruel, controlling and abusive stage mother. Francis' narrative grabs readers immediately. One of those intimate, heartbreaking, doubled-edged stories that is hard to read, impossible to put down."
"Compelling...A thoughtful trek across a troubled family landscape resulting in a bittersweet yet hopeful final act."
A graduate of Harvard University, Melissa Francis grew up in southern California.

She lives in New York City with her husband and their two sons.

Excellent story. Painful tale of a child star who felt unloved by her mother. Glad she was able to overcome her mother to be able to love her own children.Published 1 month ago by CJ

I like to read biographies and history because I want to know what really happened. I don't like fiction because most of it has badly written dialogue. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mariane Matera
