Reviews

"Over the course of her illustrious career on screen, Julianna Margulies has played any number of unforgettable characters but as this memoir proves, she might be most fascinating as herself. . . . Not every celebrity autobiography has a truly compelling story to tell, but this one does and tells it with style, humor, and flair."-Town & Country

"Sunshine Girl is a probing, fearless, beautifully written coming-of-age story. The word that comes to mind is 'transcendent.' Julianna Margulies has transcended a complicated childhood, transcended a difficult ten-year relationship, transcended her own demons, transcended fame itself to become whole and wise. I loved this book."-Dani Shapiro, New York Times bestselling author of Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love

"It should be no surprise that Julianna writes with the same insight, precision, and kindness with which she imbues the characters she portrays. This book is a revelation. Be prepared to gasp!"-Alan Cumming, New York Times bestselling author of Not My Father's Son: A Memoir

"I read this book in one day and truly loved it. Julianna Margulies's level of introspection is remarkable. Personality and destiny are largely forged from childhood and family, yet few of us are able to weave that journey into a compelling memoir that examines the harder parts of our lives with such honesty. Margulies's engrossing story of the difficulties and nuances of growing up between two households paints a candid but loving portrait of the brutal insecurities of adolescence and the unbreakable bonds of all imperfect families. I rooted for her at every turn, especially during her present chapter."-Lee Woodruff, New York Times bestselling author of In an Instant: A Family's Journey of Love and Healing

"
Sunshine Girl
is at once a tender coming-of-age story and a deeply personal look at a young woman making sense of the world against a chaotic and peripatetic childhood. We are all so fortunate that Julianna Margulies discovered her passion. You will feel inspired by the way she has lived her life: with grit, grace, and gratitude."-Katie Couric

"[An] intriguing tale . . . This book is more about the strength of the storytelling than the star power of the author. . . . What the author shares and doesn't is deliberate, all offered to advance the fascinating story she wants to tell. It's the mark of a talented storyteller. . . . Margulies's unflinching quest to explain her life makes her well-crafted memoir compelling whether you know her roles or not."-Kirkus Reviews

"[
Sunshine Girl
is] full of piquant anecdotes . . . and subtle, evocative character studies. . . . The result is an entertaining and revealing portrait."-Publishers Weekly

"[A] thought-provoking and revelatory memoir . . . Though Margulies's anecdotes may be outside readers' own realms of experience, she relates them with such intimacy and candor that readers might recognize in her a kindred spirit. . . . A deeply reflective narrative that will appeal to both Margulies's fans and anyone who enjoys a warm and well-crafted memoir."-Library Journal

"Margulies . . . shares her path to stardom in this frank memoir. . . . Readers looking for salacious Hollywood tales won't find them here; instead Margulies's fans and all readers interested in TV careers will enjoy learning her origin story."-Booklist
