Marie writes in a positive, humorous manner. Very likable. I felt like I was a close friend of hers by the time I finished reading the book. For those that grew up with Donny and Marie Osmond this will be an enjoyable read. If you are looking for more scoop on her divorces, you will be disappointed. She wrote very briefly about her marriages and the ultimate demise of them, and didn't really give any reasons. After reading this book, I would love to see her in Las Vegas where she and Donny perform at the Flamingo.

This is collection of events, thoughs and points of view by Marie Osmond. An autobiography of sorts but not really. This was not as enjoyable as I thought it would be. The events are not in chronoligical order which Marie warned they would not be. Although Marie claimed these stories personal...I still do not feel like I got a glimpse of who she really is. I picked up this book (and Valerie Bertinellis) because they are women the same age as me and grew up during the same time frame. I got thru this book pretty quickly, not too sure if it was because I was interested in the stories or I just wanted to get on with my next book.

More Marcia Wilkie than Marie Osmond. Nothing new in this book - just repackaged stories that I'd already read or had been made public in other arenas. Seemed mostly like yet another celeb extending their fingers into yet another income stream.

Loved the positive outlook and the way she brings you into a glimpse of her life and her family.

I enjoyed reading this, Marie did a great job - how she related each new dance she learned to her life experiences.

I look forward to her next book!
