Oscar-nominated actress Rosie Perez’s never-before-told story of surviving a harrowing childhood and of how she found success—both in and out of the Hollywood limelight.

“Magnificent, very real, and heart wrenching.”
—Hilton Als, staff writer, The New Yorker

“Reading this story I was shaking my head in amazement that Rosie is even walking around, still smiling, let alone creating and caring about the world. Charles Dickens never dreamed up a more incredible hard-knocks story.”
—Edward Norton
