Marcia Brady, eldest daughter on television's The Brady Bunch, had it all. But what viewers didn't know about the always sunny, perfect Marcia was that off-screen, her real-life counterpart, Maureen McCormick was living a very different—and not-so-wonderful—life. Maureen tells the shocking and inspirational true story of the beloved teen and the woman she became.

Maureen takes us behind-the-scenes of America's favorite television family. But the real story begins after The Brady Bunch ended. Maureen found herself tangled in a fast-paced, drug-fueled, Hollywood existence that ultimately lead to the biggest battle of her life.

There is no question: Maureen McCormick is a survivor. Here's the Story is the empowering, engaging, shocking, and emotional tale of Maureen McCormick's courageous struggle over adversity and her lifelong battle to come to terms with the idea of perfection—and herself.

    " I really wanted to like this book, but it just kept getting worse and worse the further in I went. She is one scatter brained woman, starts one topic and then off on another, it was an irritating read and a total waste of time for me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Cher | 2/16/2014

    " This book is excellent in that the author tells her story as she experienced it, not with too much hindsight cluttering it up. However, one gets the feeling that she is very much craving approval & it made me sad for her that she lacked the self-assurance of 1/3 of a Marcia Brady. That tone could be her ghostwriter's fault, though. "

    " Well written autobiography tell-all. Down to earth. She's had quite an interesting life. "

    " Yes, I grew up watching the Brady Bunch, so this book caught my attention. Is it just me, or does it seem like very few celebrity children have much of a normal life? It was very sad reading her story. Her grandmother and mother both suffered from syphilis and mental problems. When Maureen heard about the mental issues, she was sure she would go insane. It turns out she ended up on Prozac for depression. Before that she went through a major cocaine binge. Reading her story, I'm surprised she has turned out as well as she has and that she was able to have a normal baby. "
