Andrea Barber is known to millions world-wide as Kimmy Gibbler, star of hit 90s sitcom Full House and recent Netflix sequel Fuller House. In this funny, heartfelt book, Andrea takes readers behind the scenes of her odd Hollywood career and through the ways in which, like many of us, she's rebooted her own life a few times. In this book, Andrea shares how anxiety (particularly post-partum anxiety) was a wrecking ball in her life, and how with the help of her real-life family, as well as her television family, was able to take control and lead a happy, successful life. Kimmy Gibbler crashed through the back door of the Tanner family's kitchen and fearlessly installed herself as zany friend to millions of loyal viewers. She was brash, unapologetic, brimming with confidence, and fully accepting of her own weirdness. Twenty years later, the Full House creator called to tell Andrea that Netflix wanted to do a sequel, now with Kimmy as a starring role. Andrea was struggling with serious anxiety and depression and had just signed her divorce papers four days earlier. There was nothing she needed more than a reboot. In FULL CIRCLE, Andrea opens up about her life as a Full House child star, her decision to leave Hollywood and come back again, the meaningful differences between herself and her character, her lifelong friendship with cast members, and what it did for her to walk onto that set again and reunite with the Tanners just as her own real-life family was coming apart.
