From struggling single mom to Golden Globe winner, it’s been a long road for Taraji P. Henson – and she’s sharing her journey in a new book!
The Empire star took to her Instagram late last week to announce the release of her memoir Around The Way Girl, sharing a sneak peek of the front and back covers of the book with her 7 million followers.
Publishing house Simon & Schuster is releasing the book, and a statement made by Henson can be found on their website, which gives readers an idea of what to expect from her life’s story.
“As for the real me, I’m just a girl who went to Hollywood with my son, $700, and a dream,” Henson said. “There were some detours along the way, some heartache, and a whole lot of hustle. My family, friends, and fans always keep it real with me. Know that I’m going to keep it real with you. Check out my story. I hope you laugh with me and cry with me and maybe get a little bit inspired.”
