Confessions of a Prairie Bitch

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play with Laura Ingalls? Have Mary as an older sister? Punch Nellie Oleson in the nose? Finally, you can find out when you read Alison Arngrim's Confessions of a Prairie Bitch A book about being the rottenest, meanest, most terrible teen to ever homestead on the prairie.

Alison lets the reader in behind the scenes of Little House on the Prairie to find out even more about our beloved TV friends and what it was really like to work portraying the enemy of all young girls in the 70's. Alison uses her twisted sense of humor to explain not only life on the set, but also her struggles with sexual abuse, her very unusual family, (her mother was the voice of Casper the Friendly Ghost), and how she found her way through the jungle that is adolescence in the public spotlight. If you liked watching Little House this book is a must read if only to finally allow you to forgive Nellie Oleson while revisitng Walnut Grove one more time.
