"Even as Demi was becoming the highest paid actress in Hollywood, however, she was always outrunning her past, just one step ahead of the doubts and insecurities that defined her childhood. Throughout her rise to fame and during some of the most pivotal moments of her life, Demi battled addiction, body image issues, and childhood trauma that would follow her for years all while juggling a skyrocketing career and at times negative public perception. As her success grew, Demi found herself questioning if she belonged in Hollywood, if she was a good mother, a good actress and, always, if she was simply good enough. As much as her story is about adversity, it is also about tremendous resilience. In this deeply candid and reflective memoir, Demi pulls back the curtain and opens up about her career and personal lifelaying bare her tumultuous relationship with her mother, her marriages, her struggles balancing stardom with raising a family, and her journey toward open heartedness. Inside Out is a story of survival, success, and surrendera wrenchingly honest portrayal of one womans at once ordinary and iconic life." --- Provided by publisher.

Very, very readable and interesting but in the end I felt the author fell short of truly revealing something that to me was very important: What caused all 3 of her children to stop having anything to do with her for 4 years? How did that get resolved between them? I wanted to know and understand this; perhaps it was too raw and revealing for the author to talk about but the fact that she didn't go into detail on this really made me wonder just how much she was willing to truly reveal. Still, a good, fast, and entertaining read.

I never a big fan of Demi, but I do recall her days on GH. A very interesting life she has lead.

Childhood trauma shapes a life but does not define it. A survivor's story.
