There Was a Little Girl
The perfect gift for Brooke Shields fans, There Was a Little Girl explores Brooke's relationship with her unforgettable mother, Teri, in this extraordinary, heartfelt memoir that became a New York Times bestseller. Brooke Shields never had what anyone would consider an ordinary life. She was raised by her Newark-tough single mom, Teri, a woman who loved the world of show business and was often a media sensation all by herself. Brooke's iconic modeling career began by chance when she was only eleven months old, and Teri's skills as both Brooke's mother and her manager were formidable. But in private she was troubled and drank heavily. As Brooke became an adult the pair made choices and sacrifices that would affect their relationship forever. And when Brooke’s own daughters were born she found that her experience as a mother was shaped in every way by the woman who raised her. But despite the many ups and downs, Brooke was by Teri’s side when she died in 2012, a loving daughter until the end. Only Brooke knows the truth of the remarkable, difficult, complicated woman who was her mother. And now, in an honest, open memoir about her life growing up, Brooke will reveal stories and feelings that are relatable to anyone who has been a mother or daughter.

Lights, Camera...Travel!
Lights, Camera...Travel! Travel stories from screen storytellers including Alec Baldwin, Brooke Shields, Richard E Grant, Neil LaBute, Bruce Beresford and Sandra Bernhard. Since the ancient Greeks, actors have been society's storytellers. And ever since Hollywood first left the back lot, these storytellers have been traveling to far-flung corners of the world to tell those tales. We decided to ask some of the most widely traveled people in the film industry to sit down and tell us their own stories - personal, inspiring, funny, embarrassing and human experiences from their time on the road. Edited by Andrew McCarthy (Pretty in Pink, Less Than Zero, National Geographic Traveler contributing editor) and Don George (A Moveable Feast, Tales from Nowhere, National Geographic Traveler contributing editor).

My Journey through Postpartum Depression
Aku tidak berminat menjamah bayiku. Aroma tubuhnya membuatku mual. Yang bisa kulakukan hanyalah menangis tanpa henti. Aku ingin mencintai putriku seperti ibu-ibu yang lain, namun, yang selalu muncul dalam bayanganku, bayiku melayang membentur dinding, lalu jatuh terkapar di lantai. Mungkin lebih baik jika aku mati karena bayiku pasti akan baik-baik saja tanpa diriku. Setelah melewati penantian panjang dan perjuangan berat, Brooke Shields mendapatkan apa yang selalu diimpikannya, seorang bayi perempuan yang sempurna. Tapi, tak seperti yang selalu dibayangkannya, dia tidak mampu mencintai putri kecilnya. Brooke menderita depresi pascamelahirkan yang parah. Berbeda dengan baby blues yang telah jamak dikenal, depresi pascamelahirkan lebih berbahaya bagi ibu dan anaknya. Dan tidak seperti yang kita sangka, penyakit ini melanda satu dari sepuluh orang ibu di seluruh dunia. Dalam buku ini, Brooke membicarakan penyakit ini dalam konteks kehidupan pribadinya, termasuk perjuangannya untuk mencapai kehamilan dan untuk tetap bertahan hidup di tengah serangan depresi pascamelahirkan yang nyaris menghancurkannya.
