Book Description

You think your life is nuts?

Since I was sixteen, I've spent time on Death Row, tried to sell my baby sister 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. But like Sami, I've had my share of struggles. I've been told I was fat, watched fellow actresses starve themselves, been cruelly rejected, 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?

This is my story. It's an account of my years on daytime's most popular soap, and of my life off-screen--the major ups and downs, the craziness of Hollywood, balancing work and play, looking for love, concerns about weight, peer pressure, and finally learning to 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.

Alison Sweeney was born in Los Angeles, one of three children of a concert violinist mother and a business investor father. Her acting career began when she was four years old. Throughout her childhood, Alison appeared in numerous television commercials, as well television series including Friends, Simon & Simon, Webster, St. Elsewhere, and Tales from the Darkside. She had starring roles in the films The Price of Life and The End of Innocence.

Alison joined the cast of Days of Our Lives as Sami Brady in 1993. In her years on the series, her character has evolved from a troubled teenager to a scheming villainess. In 2002, Alison won a fan-voted Emmy as America's Favorite Villain. She has also won the fan-voted Soap Opera Digest Award four times, and in 2001 was elected by the same publication as one of the Most Beautiful Women in Daytime Television. Soap Opera Weekly named Alison 1999's Breakout Performer of the year, and in Australia, she was voted "Best Bad Girl" in 2000 and 2001 by readers of Inside Soaps magazine.

Alison lives in a suburb of Los Angeles with her husband, Dave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for Sami fans (or haters) 16 Feb. 2006
By Isabella Valentine - - Published on
I've been a fan of Alison's character, Sami Brady, on Days of Our Lives since 1993... so when I received this book as a gift, I knew it would be nothing short of amazing.

People either love or despise her (Sami) and this book talks candidly about Alison's personal and professional life, as well as behind-the-scenes insider tell-all secrets. Alison talks openly about her life, her loves, passions, her struggle with weight in the acting industry, and her supportive family throughout her childhood acting. She talks about her real-life relationships with her co-workers, some attended her prom, some attended her wedding, etc. There are even pictures of other cast members with her with real-life wedding pictures as well as magazine covers

I gotta say though, as a die-hard fan of Sami, I was NOT disappointed. This book told me everything I always secretly wanted to know about Sami's life. Alison was very detailed in explaining the reasoning behind Sami's behaviors.

One of my favorite parts of the books was hearing how an old woman actually hit Alison on the street with a purse because she hated Sami so much and said, "Give the baby back!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a help! 25 May 2004
By "emkaiser" - Published on
This is such a good and helpful book. I bought it for my teenage daughter who is feeling a little picked on and insecure in school recently, and I swear she hasn't put it down. I had to stop her in between chapters to ask if it was good, and all she could say was "wow, I didn't think a star like her would feel the same way as me!" Thanks Ali, for sharing your life and helping others.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Days Fans 10 Feb. 2005
By MommyIves - Published on
Any fan of Days of Our Lives would love to read this book. It is filled behind the scenes fun facts as Alison tells her story of how she was a Days of Our Lives fan one day and on the show the next. She goes in detail about her struggle with her weight and gives tips for others on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. There are pictures from points of interest in her life and behind the scenes photos from Days. This book is very well written and easy to read. I really enjoyed it and I think others will too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sami and Ali= Now I Like Both 21 Feb. 2005
By Jamie Floer - Published on
I just finished this awesome book and took away from it some very valuable life lessons. Ali is mature way beyond her years and her true sense of self comes shining through in this book. I had only really known her through her role as Sami, and I can tell that she shares with me an intrigue toward a character that you love to hate. I just hope that Ali will do a follow-up book down the road so we can get her outlook on motherhood, post-pregnancy weight, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Fast Read! 25 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on
I got this book and finished it all in the same weekend! If you like Hollywood stories, tales of teenage angst and an all around fun, fast read with some morals and lessons thrown in, this book is for you! Ali tells the story of her life growing up on Days of Our Lives, funny memories about shooting episodes and the trials and tribulations that made her who she is today. She talks about high-school, dating, meeting and marrying her husband and much more. Trust me, this is a great read.
