“You Look Like That Girl…” by Lisa Jakub

Lisa Jakub starting acting at age 4. She was in movies like Mrs. Doubtfire and Independence Day. When she was 22, she made the decision to leave it all behind. While the transition from child actor to regular person who gets recognized sometimes was not easy, it was what she needed to do. She had a very different childhood than most, but she doesn’t regret her experience. The book does not contain sordid details (unless you count the teamsters teaching a preschooler how to play craps). It is in need of an editor, however, due to the number of missing or incorrect words. I recommend “You Look Like That Girl…” to fans of Lisa Jakub and people who enjoy autobiographies.
