In the audaciously honest voice that her fans adore, the "Mega Diva" bares her soul in this poignant - and at times hilarious - memoir.

Performing hundreds of film and television roles as the "Mama'" to characters portrayed by stars like Whitney Houston, Tupac Shakur, and Taraji P Henson cemented Jenifer Lewis's status as "the Mother of Black Hollywood."

When she experiences an emotional breakdown while filming The Temptations, her quest for wholeness becomes a harrowing yet inspiring tale that includes revelations of bipolar disorder.

This gripping memoir is filled with insights gained through a unique life that offers a universal message: "Love yourself so that love will not be a stranger when it comes."
