There Was a Little Girl: The Real Story of My Mother and Me
This emotionally bare story charts the complex relationship between Shields and her alcoholic, ambitious mother. The heft in the book comes from Shield's willingness to show all
sides of their interactions, be they loving or upsetting. "I liked knowing Mom was near," writes Shields about the filming of Pretty Baby
at age 11. "I was embarrassed and nervous about not being perfect for her." A poignant look at a tough but love-filled relationship—and forgiveness.
