Summary from Goodreads:

In my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life-changing decision to stop running forever.

This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond. This is the path I took to finding my purpose but also my voice in a world that didn’t always see me.

As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were open to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination. We are forced to reinvent them to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world. So I wrote this for anyone running through life untethered, desperate and clawing their way through murky memories, trying to get to some form of self-love. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be . . . you.

Finding Me is a deep reflection, a promise, and a love letter of sorts to self. My hope is that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.

Viola Davis came from very little to do great things with her life. Proof that anyone can make something of themselves as long as they work hard.

I loved reading Davis' story. They way she portrays her younger life, with the struggles of poverty and racism. Even through all of it, she stayed strong and held to who she was and her beliefs. I think Davis was a strong woman long before she even knew it herself.

There is something to be said about self made women. They change the world in wonderful ways without even knowing it. I'm so grateful to have read this book and look forward to what Viola Davis does next.
