TITLE: Inside Out : a memoir
AUTHOR: Demi Moore
PUBLISHER: Harper Collins
PUB. YEAR: 2019
RATING - 4/5
At age 56, Demi Moore looks back at her life: her sad dysfunctional childhood, three marriages, motherhood and successful career as an actress.
Demi was born to a teenaged mother with suicidal tendencies and an alcoholic father. As a result, she witnessed things many children never have to deal with. She was also a sickly child and spent several months in the hospital at the age of 5 (and again at age 11) because of a kidney condition. Despite Demi's health issues she assumed the role as protector to her younger brother because of their chaotic home life.
As her story progresses we learn about her inner turmoil of never feeling good enough or thin enough, as well as, her struggles with substance abuse and eating disorders. Details of her marriages, motherhood and career made this a quick but interesting read. I found this memoir to be an eye opener; it felt raw and brutally honest.
