Description
The star of the hit show Glee shares her experiences and insider tips on beauty, fashion, inner strength, and more in an illustrated in an illustrated book that’s part memoir, part how-to, and part style guide.
 
Lea Michele is one of the hardest working performers in show business.  Whether she’s starring as Rachel Berry on Glee, rocking a glamorous look on the red carpet, recording her solo album, or acting as the spokesperson for L’Oreal, Lea is the ultimate multi-tasker.  She knows better than anyone that it is difficult to be your best self and keep things in perspective when your to-do list is overflowing and you are faced with challenges, so she’s developed a foolproof system for remaining healthy and centered.  In Brunette Ambition, she reveals the lessons and advice that have worked for her—from beauty and fashion secrets to fitness tips, and career insights.  Supplemented with never-before-seen photos and revealing anecdotes, it’s the book Lea wishes she’d had in her teens and early twenties: A practical and inspirational guide to harnessing tenacity and passion and living the fullest life, no matter what obstacles life puts in your way.

        April 7, 2014
        Best known for her role as Rachel Berry on the award-winning Fox series Glee, actress and singer Michele offers a hybrid memoir, cookbook, and fitness and style guide, sprinkled with lists of favorites, Dos & Don’ts, and fan q&as. Bronx-raised Michele discusses her role models (and her first time meeting Barbra Streisand), and her family and childhood, including details about juggling “normal school” life with performing on Broadway (Les Misérables, Ragtime, Fiddler on the Roof, Spring Awakening). The middle of the book presents tips on taking care of one’s body (health, diet, fitness, makeup) and balancing everyday style with red carpet glamour. Readers learn about home spa treatments, a recipe for a DIY hair masque, Michele’s food regimen (with easy-to-follow, illustrated pescatarian recipes), and basic exercises. Michele’s warm, easygoing tone and colorful anecdotes will appeal to her devoted fan base. Full-color photos throughout. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, William Morris Endeavor.
