A Paper Life Cd: My Story: My Story is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.

At age ten, Tatum O'Neal became the youngest Oscar® winner in history for her performance in the film classic Paper Moon. As the sidekick to her father, Ryan O'Neal, she became a fixture at the most glamorous Hollywood parties and counted celebrities among her childhood friends.

But behind the glittering facade of Tatum's life lay heartbreak: abandonment, abuse, and neglect. Her alcoholic mother drifted in and out of her life. Her father grew increasingly punishing and distant, especially after moving in with his longtime love, Farrah Fawcett. By her late teens, Tatum had begun a perilous slide into self-destruction.

Then Tatum met the man who would become her husband: the explosive tennis great John McEnroe. They had three children in quick succession, followed by one of the messiest high-profile divorces on record. With the collapse of her marriage and no real family to turn to, Tatum succumbed to the demons of her past that would nearly kill her. Now she has emerged clean and sober, rediscovering herself as an actress, mother, and wonderfully vibrant woman in what she considers the prime of her life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a Waste of Paper! I feel sorry for the trees that gave up their lives for the drivel of this book. It's probably one of the worst biographies I've ever read. Talk about a self-centred, egotistical, spoiled brat who spent too much time blaming others for her problems. I feel sorry for her family - especially her children. What a waste of an afternoon reading this book - I wish I could give it a negative rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Surprisingly Revealing!" This was a fascinating look into the lives of Celebrities, as seen through, the eyes of children. Tatum O 'Neal, and her brothers certainly had a destructive upbringing, surrounded by alcoholics, drug addicts, and abusers. It's amazing what power is possessed by 'the celebrity' and how it can allow them to abuse their children, and those around them. I admire Ms. O'Neal, for overcoming the many heartbreaking obstacles she had to face, growing up. Very entertaining and easy to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Stunning Look at a Hollywood Kid I thoroughly enjoyed the look into the life of Tatum. I went into this book with a one sided view of her and came out with a whole new respect for her. I do not feel that she held back when opening her wounds to the world, this made the book that more interesting. It is refreshing when someone can open themselves up to all the scrutiny and backlash that is going to come. I hope it was a release that Tatum needed.
