I had heard years ago that Brooke Sheilds had fired her mother as her manager and that her mom was the typical show biz mother... It was interesting to read Brooke's side of it and how she saw her mother.. They had a loving, yet very difficult relationship, mostly because of her mom's drinking.. I can relate to many of the conflicts she faced, as my mom is also very difficult.. Brooke's mother eventually developed dementia.. I can also relate to that, as both of my parents have different forms of the disease.. My heart broke for her in many parts of the book. It's well written and very well performed.. She sounds like your typical bossy only/oldest child at times, and I'm sure her mom probably very much resented a child telling her what to do.. and there's a little air of entitlement here and there that kind of turned me off... For that I took off one star, but overall, interesting story.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes! This relationship was so different than that portrayed by the media. Funny at times, quite sad at others, really worth a read if you are interested in mother-daughter relationships, Brooke Shields, or the impact of alcoholism.
What other book might you compare There Was a Little Girl to and why?
What about Brooke Shields’s performance did you like?
I enjoyed listening to her tell her own story.
