From Princess Leia herself: another brilliantly hilarious self-examination of her unlikely life and times.

A thoroughly original and intimate memoir by the bestselling author of Postcards from the Edge and Wishful Drinking.

Reviews

Smart and funny...the pages crackle with one-liners

Guardian

It’s an eye-opener for fans, but it also shows a gifted writer even at a young age. There was a lot going on between Princess Leia’s hair buns.

USA Today

An unflinching, sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious look inside the mind of a 19-year-old … It’s invasive, juicy, sad, nostalgic and gripping all at once. It’s as if you’ve knocked the lock off of your cooler older sister’s journal and discovered she’s been sleeping with the hottest boy in school this whole time.
