This uplifting and beautifully illustrated gift book from award-winning actress Jenna Ortega will inspire you to lean into faith and love and family during life's most difficult, and most joyous, moments. I want you, my readers, to know that you are not alone. We are in this together.
This collection from actress Jenna Ortega is filled with Jenna's own original quotes and affirmations, alongside intimate, personal stories about growing up Latina in Hollywood, working through depression, falling in—and out of—love, losing close family members, and so much more.
Jenna has had to balance her acting career, her private life, and public expectations from a young age, and she’s learned that the only way to get through it all is to wake up every morning and affirm her commitment to herself, her faith, her mental health, and her family. In this honest and moving debut, she shares openly and intimately what it means to live this life of self-appreciation.
