Synopsis: Jennie Garth is recognized around the world as the bubbly blonde television star we've all watched for years. Yet few beyond her close friends and family know the real Jennie Garth—smart, funny, and stronger than she ever realized.

From her sudden rise to fame as a teen on the mega-hit show Beverly Hills, 90210 to rebuilding her life and emotional spirit after her recent divorce—actress Jennie Garth has embraced what life has thrown at her head-on, with openness, determination, and levity. Now, for the first time, Jennie opens up about her experiences and takes readers on a revealing—and often humorous—journey as she sets out to answer the question, how did I get here?

Since she landed in Hollywood at age sixteen, Jennie Garth has been something of a fish-out-of-water. Just months after coming to LA, she landed the role of Kelly Taylor on Aaron Spelling’s Beverly Hills, 90210. For the next ten years, Garth starred on one of the most iconic shows in television history, experiencing both the ups and downs of stardom, while securing her place in American pop-culture as a teen icon.

Recently single after eleven years of marriage, Jennie found herself facing forty from a vantage point she hadn't sought out: as a single mom, in-demand again as an actress, and all over the tabloids. In this intimate, uplifting memoir, Jennie explores the high and lows of her life in Hollywood, both in front of the cameras and behind closed doors, sharing the joys and challenges of balancing motherhood, love, and life in the spotlight.

Through these candid, funny, and poignant stories, fans will find they have a lot more in common with Jennie than they ever knew.
