type:
Book
Current Status:
In Season
author:

Ballantine Books
genre:
Memoir

We gave it a B+

Remini is one of the few who have experienced the cultlike world of Scientology from a variety of vantage points: from the inside, both as a child member of the elite Sea Org, and eventually as a celebrated Hollywood star; then from the outside, as a defector and church enemy. Full of startling, sad information about the church and its shady behavior, Trouble­maker shows how ­Remini’s stubbornness became her salvation, keeping her sane and driving her to question authority. Inside reports like this don’t come around often, and they’re worth reading when they do. B+
