Mara Wilson is instantly recognizable on the cover as the role she played in Mrs Doubtfire as Natalie, the youngest sibling and as Matilda and many other roles. Now at 29, and retired from acting, and she has written a biography about her life then and what she is up to now. Although I am not the biggest fan of biographies written by 20 or 30 year olds, she has something fresh to write about. I am sure being an actor so young makes for many challenges, and with the death of her mother at a young age and struggling with anxiety and OCD I felt there was some wisdom to be shared.
I do think though that this is a generation growing up with the need to overshare everything, and wonder how they will feel when they are older with children of their own with every thought and photo published and available on google at the touch of a button. 3/5
