What made the experience of listening to Where Am I Now? the most enjoyable?
I think it put forth a third layer to the entire experience.
What other book might you compare Where Am I Now? to and why?
My initial thought was to compare her to Mindy Kayling, just because they describe their life and what they remember about their youth so vividly, but Mara has a depth to her that made me understand that all of the repressed anxiety I had at such a young age could be rationalized by me as an adult.
What does Mara Wilson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
If I just read the book, I wouldn't be able to compare Mara Wilson's voice to whoever voices MTV's DARIA, and think - wow, this is what my inner voice sounds like - Matilda, all grown up.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It was the moment she said her mother died on the set of Matilda. My heart broke.
Any additional comments?
I wholeheartedly believe that the credit or the cash is worth listening to Mara and her honest representation of not only girlhood, but girlhood as a child star. I think her wit and wisdom are beautiful partners to her honesty and maturity. She is a wonderful storyteller.

Spoke to me on so many levels. Maria Wilson is insightful, articulate and a great story teller. Her voice was wonderful and I would love to hear more audio books narrated by her!

Like many of my peers, I grew up with Mara Wilson. She was the iconic little girl we all fell in love with and were heartbroken when she walked away from acting - reading this book has been a revelation, I have waited many years to hear her story and now I feel I love her more for it. Read by Mara herself, this book is an incredible listen, a greater read and the story of a life riddled with insecurity.
