Acknowledgments307


A prescriptive book of inspirational and spiritual life lessons from the Golden Globe-nominated star of NBC's This Is Us examines the role of authenticity and sincerity in her successes, encouraging readers to claim their rightful places in a world that constantly undermines individuals. 150,000 first printing.





Metz, who plays beloved sister Kate on This Is Us, occupies a unique place in the cultural landscape-one of the few plus-size women on a hit television show. As such, there's much speculation about her personal story-­especially how weight has affected her career and the ways in which the show's story line intertwines with her own life. In this compact book, Metz shares her story, but this is more than a celebrity bio. At its heart, it's a how-to book-how to take charge of your own life, with Metz and coauthor O'Leary detailing what she had to overcome: an absent father, an abusive stepfather, an overworked mother, and weight issues that impacted her in numerous ways. Moving from Florida to Los Angeles led to a career as an agent, though she wanted to act and sing. A role in American Horror Story led to This Is Us. Writing in an agreeably folksy voice, Metz drops include her empowerment messages throughout the book-face your fears, practice gratitude, visualize success. These nuggets have appeared in thousands of books, but coming from Kate, they'll have new resonance for fans. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
