Publisher's Summary

Melissa has been entertaining audiences most of her life; when there were no girls named Melissa on her favorite show, the forceful four year old decided she’d get on TV her way. From that moment on, Melissa has shown a singular determination and focus whether it’s for booking three national commercials so her dad would build her a tree house or for nailing the audition for Clarissa.
From her first commercial to her current starring role in ABC Family’s hit Melissa and Joey, Hart never let fame go to her head. She always had one foot in Hollywood and one foot in reality - and still does. Melissa makes us laugh along with her as she talks about:

guest appearances in shows like Saturday Night Live and The Equalizer
auditioning for Punky Brewster and Clarissa
her early Broadway days
wacky parties she’s thrown and attended
the actors who influenced her and whom she befriended, worked with and competed against
her experiences both on and off-set - with Sabrina’s Salem the Cat and Elvis the Alligator on Clarissa
how she met the love of her life at the Kentucky Derby

Melissa Joan Hart explains all that she’s learned along the way - what’s kept her grounded, normal and working when others have not been so fortunate - and that she’s the approachable, hilarious girl-next-door her fans have always thought she’d be.

Engaging Yet Hammy, Like Nickelodeon Acting

What did you like best about Melissa Explains It All? What did you like least?

I loved hearing about how Melissa got started as a child actor: being brought to auditions by her mom, with her gaggle of siblings; being rewarded with new toys for bagging commercials?! Crazy.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting aspect is that she seems to have turned out pretty normal (with an expected degree of self-involvement, but then again, it's a memoir).

The least interesting aspect is her relatively normal life these days: I was semi-interested in her meeting her husband and whatnot but then there's a whole chapter where she describes different types of theme parties she's planned and I'm shouting "Why am I listening to this??" (and I love theme parties).

Do you think Melissa Explains It All needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No thank you.
