9780147516565: There Was a Little Girl: The Real Story of My Mother and Me

Brooke Shields never had what anyone would consider an ordinary life. Raised in Manhattan by her tough-as-nails single mother Teri after her divorce from Brooke's aristocratic father, Brooke's early years with her mother seemed magical. Brooke was such a beautiful baby that at eleven months old, she became a model, beginning a remarkable career that made Brooke the most famous child, and then teen, of her generation. Teri became almost as famous, appearing to many as the quintessential stage mother.

Teri's skills as both a mother and manager were formidable she selected great projects for Brooke, such as the Cannes Palme d Or winner Pretty Baby and the huge commercial success The Blue Lagoon. On the set of each movie she fiercely protected Brooke from the dangers and temptations that have waylaid so many child stars. But behind the scenes Teri was troubled drinking so much that thirteen-year-old Brooke staged an intervention and while the bond she created with Brooke was incredible, it could also be stifling, making it difficult for Brooke to become her own person.

When it was time for college and adulthood both Brooke and Teri confronted a difficult question could they survive without each other? Both made choices, and incredible sacrifices, that would affect their relationship forever. When Teri died in 2012 Brooke was by her side, both loving and conflicted to the end. Teri s death led to yet another media firestorm about who the world thought she was. But only Brooke knows the truth of the remarkable, difficult, complicated woman that was her mother. And now she'll share all in her memoir.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The actress and author of the New York Times bestseller Down Came the Rain, Brooke Shields, explores her relationship with her unforgettable mother, Teri, in her new memoir Brooke Shields never had what anyone would consider an ordinary life. She was raised by her Newark-tough single mom, Teri, a woman who loved the world of show business and was often a media sensation all by herself. Brooke s iconic modeling career began by chance when she was only eleven months old, and Teri s skills as both Brooke s mother and her manager were formidable. But in private she was troubled and drank heavily. As Brooke became an adult the pair made choices and sacrifices that would affect their relationship forever. And when Brooke s own daughters were born she found that her experience as a mother was shaped in every way by the woman who raised her. But despite the many ups and downs, Brooke was by Teri s side when she died in 2012, a loving daughter until the end. Only Brooke knows the truth of the remarkable, difficult, complicated woman who was her mother. And now, in an honest, open memoir about her life growing up, Brooke will reveal stories and feelings that are relatable to anyone who has been a mother or daughter.
