    First I?m going to start this off by saying I?m a huge fan of This Is Us. I think it?s such a smart, fresh TV show with realistic characters. So, when I saw an audiobook narrated by one of the stars of the show, I had to listen. I?m so glad I did. Chrissy Metz talks like she...

    I love Chrissy Metz! Of course, we know who she is from "This is Us" (such a good show!) I listened to Chrissy read the audiobook version which is my favorite way to read this type of book. I also started and finished this book in less than 24 hours. Listening to her story and le...

    This is an absorbing and riveting memoir by Chrissy Metz who plays Kate on the show This is Us, one of my current favorites. The story of Chrissy?s life is amazing...she experienced many challenges as she grew up in Florida, and her journey from her difficult childhood to her status ...

    When this book popped up on my library?s website I put my name down for it. I really love the show This is Us, like Kate as a character and liked Chrissy in interviews I seen with her. I liked that Chrissy narrated the audio book, there were times you could tell got to her, others th...

    I'm so glad I read this book. I'm a huge fan of This Is Us and I think Chrissy Metz is a great actor. It was sad to read about her childhood and how much her family struggled. A father who abandoned the family and cared more about her brother and sister and then a step-father who abuse...

    I want to be friends with the author! I love her as an actress and she sure knows how to inspire a person in her writing. Many inspirational quotes of her own and others, with her own touch. I am so glad she became Kate because she was perfectly cast for the role! ...

    I knew that Chrissy had 81 cents in her bank account when she landed the role of Kate, but I knew nothing about her back story. And what a doozy it was! I hate to use the cliche "Rags to Riches" line, because she busted her butt to get where she is today. Hers is a story of perseveranc...

    So, I fricken' love This is Us. It's my favorite thing that's been on TV in a long time. So I was always going to be interested in picking up Chrissy Metz's book. But I was so surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. It was funny, witty, and totally page-turny. I loved the combinatio...

    An empowering, emotional read by a strong, inspiring woman. I can see this getting mixed reviews because it tows the line between memoir and self-help. The result is that it does neither very well. However I can see why Chrissy was motivated to write this... HER FAMILY IS CRAZY. Girl h...

    I read and listened to this one on audio read by Chrissy herself. First, I love her as Kate on This Is Us, and that she was so brave to tell her story. I'm glad I read the book and passed it on to others at work. I really had trouble with the change of voice throughout the book. It w...

    I love Chrissy Metz! I listened to this book narrated by her and loved every second. She is positive, funny and a total joy. She?s had some tough times but has a great outlook for moving forward in her life and relationships. ...

    Chrissy Metz was an unknown actress until the TV show "This is Us" became a popular show and made her a successful actress. She writes of her childhood. Her father abandoned the family. Her mother struggled to make ends meet. She endures an abusive step-father who shames her for being ...

    Chrissy Metz is an amazing person and her personality really shines with the way she reads her novel. I loved how funny she was. She also talks about real issues and positive thinking to overcome those. She makes great points that inspire! ...

    I can?t even tell you how much I LOVED this very honest and inspiring book! Chrissy is Kate, Chrissy is me!! I related so much. Her scrapping and scraping to get where she is today yet not fully believing that she really deserves it! But she does, and I do too! We are all on a journe...

    She had a really rough childhood... Geez. She came out on top though, she's resilient and I enjoy her confidence. Interesting peek into the Hollywood world, auditioning and being an agent. Satisfying read. ...

    I'm the biggest fan of This Is Us, so I figured I'd love this book, too. But, of course, it's not written by the people who write Kate's story on the show; it's written by Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate Pearson. And while Chrissy is a fantastic actor, she's not an amazing writer. It was ...

    I liked Kate on This Is Us, but I like Chrissy Metz even more. Hearing her story, you can't help but appreciate her and what she's gone through. Great book! ...

    Chrissy goes way more into her personal life than just about any other celebrity memoir I've read, which is actually pretty admirable. She really bares her inner life. Some elements could have been shorter (her sections on dating kind of dragged) but her optimism and positivity can't b...

    I can be a sucker for a quick celeb memoir. Okay it?s probably only my second or third but I picked up this book because This Is Us. I?m unsure what to rate it, maybe 3.5 stars. I enjoyed reading about Chrissy?s life story and where she came from. It?s weird because it?s also...

    Isn't it great to find a book you just want to read all day! Well, This Is Me describes that book. Fortunately, I started it on a weekend and was able to read it all I wanted and wanted I did! It is a well written memoir of Chrissy Metz, one of the stars of the wonderful TV show, This ...

    As a "This is us" watcher, I enjoyed the book for the background on Krissy as an actor. My biggest struggle with this book was the acceptance of the physical and emotional abuse she endured as a child, and the book chalked it up to the abuse being something that made her stronger. The ...

    Friend had received this memoir as gift from a co-worker but friend had no interest so she gave it to me. I've watched most of season one of This Is Us but it felt like so much of a tearjerker that I gave it up. However, Metz's story renewed my interest in the show. Metz's strongest st...

    Such a great book! I love learning about the famous who started just like me and you! Before her role as Kate in This is Us, Chrissy had $0.81 in her bank account! She went through verbal and physical abuse. She struggled with weight her whole life. She struggled with relationships and...

    I loved, loved, LOVED this book. It's hopeful and lighthearted. It's brutal and hard-hitting. It's one of those books that you want to read in one sitting, even if you have to get up early tomorrow and it's midnight. It's one of those books you pick up when you need to be inspired. It'...

    Chrissy's book is inspiring and uplifting. I love her attitude and the way she has overcome so many obstacles in her life, starting in childhood, with her own family. Being a huge fan of the show, I see now how she brings such authenticity to her character, Kate. Having read the book, ...

    Critically-acclaimed actress Chrissy Metz, who rose to fame playing Kate Pearson in the NBC hit drama series This Is Us, has penned a compelling debut memoir. Metz writes with the candor and immediacy of a good friend who has come over for a chat. A witty, poignant and engaging read, t...
