I purchased this book for my reading pleasure.

You might know her as a Tony Award-winning Broadway star who originated the role of Galinda the Good Witch in the smash musical Wicked. Or you may recognize her from her starring roles on TV- The West Wing, Pushing Daisies, and Sesame Street. At four foot eleven, Kristin Chenoweth is an immense talent in a petite but powerful package. Through a combination of talent, hard work, and (she's quick to add) the grace of God, Kristin took Broadway and Hollywood by storm. But of course, into every storm, the occasional drizzle of disaster must fall, and Kristin reflects on how faith and familoy have kept her grounded, even in tough times.

Filled with wit, wisdom, and backstage insight, A Little Bit Wicked is long on love and short on sleep. It's essential reading for Kristin's legions of fans and an uplifting story for anyone seeking motivation to follow his or her dreams-over the rainbow and beyond.

My review:
I have been a fan of Kristin Chenoweth for a good while and when I came across this book, I had to buy it. The book is a memoir that follows Kristin from birth through the present time and describes all that has happened in between. The book is full of humor and her insights on life and love, family and career, and her enduring faith. Kristin's always upbeat demeanor in the writing lets the reader feel as if they know her and are getting the goods as they sit down to a girls night out sharing their life tales. The book includes a great picture section in the middle of the book to where you can see Kristin in the different stages of her life and with those that she loves. There is so much more to her than just the singer/actor on stage. I highly recommend this book and I think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you find in its pages.

Buy it.
