The Maddie Diaries: A Memoir

Teen dance prodigy, breakout "Dance Moms" star, and judge on "So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation" presents her uplifting coming-of-age memoir about following her dreams and working hard to achieve success in both the dance world and in life.
Maddie Ziegler had hoped to become a star --- she just didn’t know how soon that day would come. At just eight years old, she was cast on Lifetime’s hit reality show "Dance Moms" and quickly won the hearts of fans everywhere with her natural talent and determination. Soon, she was catching eyes all over --- including those of pop superstar Sia, who handpicked her to star in the incredibly popular music video “Chandelier.” The rest, as they say, was history.
In this inspirational memoir, Maddie explains the hard work she put into her rise to stardom and how she keeps her balance along the way --- starring in music videos, going on tour and becoming an actress in The Book of Henry with Naomi Watts and Jacob Tremblay. She also answers her fans’ burning questions with wise advice she’s learned on her journey. With honesty, charm and humor, Maddie offers her unique perspective on making her way in the world as a young teenager, reflecting on the lessons she’s learned --- and preparing for the exciting road ahead.
