Troublemaker by Leah Remini | Summary & Analysis
Preview:
Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology is actress/celebrity Leah Remini's memoir of her life in the Church of Scientology, her gradual disillusionment with the church, and her eventual decision to leave it permanently - all against the backdrop of building a successful acting career. Leah grows up in fairly impoverished circumstances as the child of a broken home in Brooklyn. Her father, who is chauvinistic and verbally abusive to Leah and her sister, separates from Leah's mother, Vicki Marshall. Leah is plagued by a constant sense of inadequacy, instilled in part by her father's put-downs, but also by her own sense of insecurity and status consciousness. She compares herself to her friends and neighboring families, whose mothers cook family meals and iron their clothes, despite their difficult circumstances. Vicki, though loving, is a rather absent-minded mother. Leah finds herself continuously searching for acceptance and validation, and struggles to be more like everyone else....
