Publisher Description

***An Instant New York Times Bestseller***

From the woman who is credited for launching what we know as the celebrity focused, “brand” driven, social media obsessed popular culture of today, comes an honest and surprising memoir that reckons with that truth, and shows that there is so much more to Paris Hilton than you might believe.

I was born in New York City on February 17, 1981, three days after Valentine’s Day. 

From the time I was a toddler, my brain skipped and flickered with the chemical imbalance of ADHD. Sometimes it was too much.

I’m not bragging or complaining about it, just telling you: This is my brain. It has a lot to do with how this whole book thing is going to play out, because I love run-on sentences—and dashes. And sentence fragments. I’m probably going to jump around a lot while I tell the story.

I came of age during the most turbulent pop culture period ever.

The character I played—part Lucy, part Marilyn—was my steel-plated armor.

People loved her. Or they loved to hate her, which was just as marketable. I leaned into that character, my ticket to financial freedom and a safe place to hide. I made sure I never had a quiet moment to figure out who I was without her. I was afraid of that moment because I didn’t know what I’d find.

I wrote this book in an effort to understand my place in a watershed moment: the technology renaissance, the age of influencers. I also wrote this book so that the world could know who I am today. I focused on key aspects of my life that led to what I am most proud of--how my power was taken away from me and how I took it back, how I built a thriving business, a marriage and a family.

There are so many young women who need to hear this story. I don’t want them to learn from my mistakes; I want them to stop hating themselves for their own mistakes. I want them to laugh and cry and embrace every aspect of who they are with fearlessness and pride. We all have our own brand of intelligence, and, girl, fuck fitting in.

Expressionless Face“I have to admit, going in to this book, I was skeptical. I’ve always thought of Paris Hilton as very superficial and spoiled. The beginning of the book made me a little more hopeful. I related so much to her struggle with ADHD and feel that it helped explain some of her behavior. And the whole school experience…WOW. But after that, it was downhill. I did learn things about her I wouldn’t have otherwise known, but it was still superficial and almost childish at times.”
Easy to readInformative
Surprised Face with Open Mouth“The choices Paris made to highlight her ADHD, jumping to and from asides with random references, were fun at first but started to feel cheap and overused a few chapters in. They were a useful device in breaking up dark chapters about her traumatic past but they felt unnecessary beyond that. I would have liked her to dive deeper into her advocacy work and her efforts to pass legislature to protect kids from going through what she did. It would have made the fourth part feel less rushed to me.”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“I know you’re not supposed to rate memoirs anything but a 5/5 but this felt soooo inauthentic at times. I really truly emphasize with her vulnerability in the Provo chapters but everything else just felt like her trying to revise the narrative and insert traits into herself that she actually doesn’t have.”
Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“i loved this book so much paris inspires me so much and i want to meet her one day 🩷”
Characters change and growRelatable characters
Surprised Face with Open Mouth“Overall I think 5 stars bc I had no idea it was going to be so emotional and heart breaking. Some was a little whatever but an unexpected memoir.”
