Customer Review

on February 5, 2008
I read this book by Ms. Powell and I loved it although it was actually quite an unexpectedly truthful story. Did you know her mother tried to kill her? Yes, and so this saga can be viewed as a cautionary tale for parents who are contemplating pushing their child into show business and what can happen. It is stealing your child's childhood and putting her/him into adult situations.

Ms Powell seems to have had an unhappy life until only recently due to her happy marriage to fellow child star, Dick Moore.

You'll appreciate Ms. Powell's candor yet be shocked at the kind of childhood she endured. Clearly Ms. Powell learned eventually to like performing but she paid a big price for her parents ultimate decision to support themselves on her talents.

If the girl next door has this kind of life, maybe things aren't as nice for her as we'd like to think.
