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.

A good listen

Would you recommend Melissa Explains It All to your friends? Why or why not?

I recommend it to mid-30s girls like me who grew up watching Clarissa Explains It All wondering what it would have been like to be her. It's fun following normal celebrities who are my age. Since I am Melissa's actual age (thus older than her Sabrina character), I didn't really watch Sabrina. I recently caught up on Melissa & Joey on Netflix and enjoyed it.

What about Melissa Joan Hart’s performance did you like?

It was herself, real and familiar. I would not have purchased it otherwise. She did great.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I pretty much did, and I felt like I was spending the day with Melissa. But I reeeeeeely had questions that I wanted to ask her and wished I was having an actual conversation.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this for some "light listening." I enjoyed listening to Melissa speak about her life and experiences, and a bit of behind the scenes. The book is exactly what it claims to be. Maybe when she is older she'll write another book which would be juicier!

Meh

If you’re looking for insight and self realisation - look elsewhere, this feels heavily self edited to portray herself as almost perfect, heavy name drops but no actual insight into anyone or anything. There is even a chapter talking about struggling to come to terms with her husband watching football on the weekends. For a multi decade career; that does not seem like a necessary chapter.

Zzzzzzzzzz

It was painful, too much name dropping and very impersonal. If you don't want to let people in, don't write an autobiography. I nappy story near the end was funny, but not worth the rest of the book.
