Around the Way Girl: A Memoir is Taraji P. Henson’s story of how she went from living in the projects with her mother to being well off as an actress. Taraji’s recollection of the paths that she had to take to become the actress we all know and enjoy seeing on screen is raw. She holds nothing back and it is obvious that she is true to herself. I enjoyed the directness of her words and how she seemingly never let anything hold her back. Around the Way Girl is definitely a story that is authentic and inspiring. I believe that this is a must read.
