More about the book:  
Theres no stopping Busy Philipps. From the time she was two and aced out in her nudes to explore the neighborhood (as her mom famously described her toddler jailbreak), Busy has always been headstrong, defiant, and determined not to miss out on all the fun. These qualities led her to leave Scottsdale, Arizona, at the age of nineteen to pursue her passion for acting in Hollywood. But much like her painful and painfully funny teenage years, chasing her dreams wasnt always easy and sometimes hurt more than a little.

In this stunningly candid memoir, Busy opens up about chafing against a sexist system rife with on-set bullying and body shaming, being there when friends face shattering loss, enduring devastating personal and professional betrayals from those she loved best, and struggling with postpartum anxiety and the challenges of motherhood.

But Busy also brings to the page her sly sense of humor and the unshakeable sense that disappointment shouldnt stand in her wayeven when shes knocked down both figuratively and literally (from a knee injury at her seventh-grade dance to a violent encounter on the set of "Freaks and Geeks"). The rough patches in her life are tempered by times of hilarity and joy: leveraging a flawless impression of Cher from "Clueless" into her first paid acting gig, helping reinvent a genre with cult classic "Freaks and Geeks," becoming fast friends with "Dawsons Creek" castmate Michelle Williams, staging her own surprise wedding, conquering natural childbirth with the help of a Mad Menthemed hallucination, and more.

Busy is the rare entertainer whose impressive arsenal of talents as an actress is equally matched by her storytelling ability, sense of humor, and sharp observations about life, love, and motherhood. Her conversational writing reminds us what we love about her on screens large and small. From film to television to Instagram and now to the page, Busy delightfully showcases her wry humor and her willingness to bare it all.

More about the author:
Busy Philipps is an actress best known for roles in cult TV classics like "Dawsons Creek," "Freaks & Geeks," "Cougar Town," "ER," and most recently, HBOs "Vice Principals."

She also was one of the writers of the hit film "Blades of Glory." Busy lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their two daughters.
