Review: Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother and Still Came Out Smiling (with Great Hair) by Rosie Perez

My thoughts/review:

Rosie Perez is a survivor. I was curious to read her memoir because I remember growing up watching Soul Train and seeing her in movies. I barely remember the tabloid stories that she mentions in the book since I was so young but I remember her. This was a fast read and very entertaining. This book felt like a friend talking to you rather than an impersonal memoir. Her personality shines throughout the book. Something parts were sad but she showed how she overcame her situations.
