Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini

How does a brassy girl from Brooklyn get involved in and break away from something as controversial as Scientology? Leah Remini wants you to know like most things, it's complicated. Best known for her role on King of Queens, Leah has never backed away from a fight, or thrown herself in to something less than 100%. In Troublemaker, she tells the story of how her family got involved in Scientology, and eventually broke away from the church.

Like all good celebrity memoirs, she doesn't shy away from awkward moments growing up, gives us good backstage gossip, and opens the curtain on the secretive world of Scientology. You can only imagine sitting over coffee (or something stronger) and having her tell stories of her family, Tom Cruise and Dancing with the Stars. 

If Going Clear was a bit academic for you (or thoroughly fascinating), check out Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini!
