The harrowing true story of abduction and survival from the courageous young woman who lived it—now the subject of a Lifetime original movie, I Am Elizabeth Smart. In this memoir, Elizabeth Smart reveals how she survived and the secret to forging a new life in the wake of a brutal crime. On June 5, 2002, fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Smart, the daughter of a close-knit Mormon family, was taken from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. Elizabeth was kept chained, dressed in disguise, repeatedly raped, and told she and her family would be killed if she tried to escape. After her rescue on March 12, 2003, she rejoined her family and worked to pick up the pieces of her life. With My Story, Elizabeth tells of the constant fear she endured every hour, her courageous determination to maintain hope, and how she devised a plan to manipulate her captors and convinced them to return to Utah, where she was rescued minutes after arriving. Smart explains how her faith helped her stay sane in the midst of a nightmare and how she found the strength to confront her captors at their trial and see that justice was served. In the years after her rescue, Smart transformed from victim to advocate, traveling the country and working to educate, inspire and foster change. She has created a foundation to help prevent crimes against children and is a frequent public speaker. She and her husband, Matthew Gilmour, now have two children.

Written at the height of her fame, but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, and more. The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn taken by renowned photographer Milton H. Greene, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon- from the unique perspective of the icon herself. -- Publisher description.

Known around the world for her eponymous brand of fragrances and her latest venture, Jo Loves, Jo Malone tells the “inspiring, courageous, and brutally honest” (Nylon) story of her rise from humble beginnings to beloved business success. Jo Malone began her international fragrance and scented candle business in 1983 in her kitchen, where she gave facials and made bath oils as thank-you gifts for her clients. She opened her first store in London in 1994 and, in 1999, she sold the Jo Malone London brand to Estée Lauder Companies for millions of dollars. Recently, she launched a new brand, Jo Loves, igniting the excitement of fashion and beauty websites all over the world. Raised in government-subsidized housing in Kent in the early 1960s, Jo Malone dropped out of school as a teenager to care for her sick mother. Jo had not been successful in school because of her severe dyslexia, but she had the ability to see and feel everything in scent. Her at-home beauty business and handmade products became popular, and word of her talent spread until an international brand was born. After the sale of her company and the birth of her son, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. Thus began the second chapter of her life, and in her “inspiring story of human spirit and chutzpah” (Booklist, starred review), Jo tells her full amazing and inspiring personal story. This memoir is “a testament to the power of ambition and the joy of following your dreams” (People).
