Born with cerebral palsy, Geri Jewell inspired a generation of young people when she became the first person with a disability to appear in a recurring role on prime-time television, with her groundbreaking character on the sitcom The facts of life. This candid memoir details her experiences from her traumatic birth to her rise to stardom as a stand-up comic to becoming a television star, followed by a downward spiral, tax problems, drug addiction, marriage, and an accident that nearly claimed her life.
