Why I bought it? It this month's read for my book club. (It just came out in paperback in May.)
Synopsis: It is a memoir of Julie Andrews' early years. She tells some of her family's history and goes through how she got started in show business.
What I thought? At the beginning I was worried that I wasn't going to like it. There were a lot of vignettes and disjointed facts that didn't really flow, but as the book got going it was very interesting. I'm a big fan of Julie Andrews, and so I was intrigued by the subject matter, and that helped a lot. There are a lot of great details. I enjoyed the sound of her voice too. She has lived an amazing life with lots of ups and downs. It's very open an honest. She was lucky in a lot of ways, but I loved the fact that she rose above her past and really made her own luck.
My rating: **** out of 5
Cleanness Score: 4 out of 10, a little language and some adult situations
