As Sami Brady on Days Of Our Lives, actress Alison Sweeney has schemed, charmed, and lied her way through life’s many twists and turns. But off-screen, Alison has dealt with the ordinary, yet just as challenging, issues that plague every young woman—from her weight to romance to finding friends. Now, in this candid, fun, and straight-from-the-heart book, Alison shares the wit, wisdom, and lessons learned that have marked her own road to adulthood and made these the best days of her life.

You think your life is nuts?

Since I was sixteen, I’ve spent time on Death Row, kidnapped my baby sister and tried to sell her on the black market, been stranded at the altar (repeatedly), lied about my son’s paternity, and fought viciously with just about everybody in town. Well, okay, it wasn’t really me—it was my character, Sami Brady on Days of Our Lives. Sami is one wild girl, and I’ve been lucky enough to act out her life every week. But just like Sami, I’ve had my share of struggles, too. I’ve been told I was fat, watched fellow actresses diet down to nothing, been rejected—sometimes viciously—and wondered if I would ever date. (Hey, the first time I kissed a boy was in front of a TV camera!) There was even a time when I hated myself.

Sound familiar?

In this book, you’ll read my story. It’s an account of my ten-plus years on daytime’s most popular soap, and the story of my life off-screen—the major ups and downs, the craziness of Hollywood, problems with friends, balancing work and play, looking for love, concerns about weight, being pulled in every possible direction (and not always the right ones), and finally learning to love and accept myself for who I am. I’ll tell you fun stories about myself and my co-stars…recollections of my most memorable scenes…and everything you’ve always wanted to know about Sami. I think you’ll find a lot in these pages that will remind you of all the days of your life…and perhaps inspire you to follow your own dreams in the days to come.
