Gabourey Sidibe - the Oscar-nominated Precious star and Empire actress - has a voice like no other. She is wise, complex, smart, and funny - just as likely to make you cry with laughter as to see the world differently. In This Is Just My Face, she shares a one-of-a-kind life story in a voice as fresh and challenging as many of the unique characters she’s played onscreen. With full-throttle honesty, Sidibe paints her family life growing up with a polygamous father and a gifted mother who supports her two children by singing in the subway.

Sidibe tells the engrossing, inspiring story of her first job as a phone-sex "talker." And she shares her unconventional (of course!) rise to fame as a movie star in Precious, alongside "a superstar cast of rich people who lived in mansions and had their own private islands and amazing careers while I lived in my mom’s apartment."

Sidibe’s memoir hits hard with clear-eyed dispatches on friendship, depression, haters, celebrity, fashion, race, and weight. Irreverent, hilarious, and untraditional, This Is Just My Face will resonate with anyone who has ever felt different,
