For countless adolescents across America who came of age in the early 1970s, Marcia Brady, eldest daughter on television's The Brady Bunch, was the ideal American teenager. But what viewers didn't know about the always sunny, always perfect Marcia was that Maureen McCormick, the young actress who portrayed her, was living a very different—and not-so-wonderful—life.
In Here's the Story, Maureen takes us behind the scenes of America's favorite television family—and reveals with poignancy and candor how she landed on the dark side, caught up in a fast-paced, drug-fueled, star-studded Hollywood nightmare that led to the biggest, most important battle of her life. This brave, hard-hitting memoir exposes a side of a beloved pop-culture icon the paparazzi missed. Yet ultimately it is also a story of success and survival—an empowering, engaging, shocking, and emotional true tale of a young woman's lifelong battle to come to terms with the idea of perfection...and with herself.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Born in 1956, Maureen McCormick began her career at the age of six after winning the Baby Miss San Fernando Valley beauty pageant.
