Having "grown up" with Jodie Foster- she's only about ten days younger than me, I am facinated with her and her life-

Her brother writes this biography in a respectful, honest way. He spends a lot of time talking about himself, but what can you expect from someone writing a book?

He also spends a lot of time trying to explain his family dynamics, which were different, but not quite as disfunctional as he states it to be.

He also spends way too much time analyzing Jodie's movies and how they relate to their life styles.

This was a good read- reads fast and I really did enjoy it. It's not a juicy tell all, so don't expect details about that! Jodie is a private person, and her brother respects that.
