Confessions of a Prairie Bitch: How I Survived Nellie Oleson and Learned to Love Being Hated
By Alison Arngrim
IT Books, 2010. 302 pages. Biography.
If you are a fan of the Little House on the Prairie television series, you will love Arngrim's biography of her time as the arch-villain of the show, the stuck-up and manipulative Nellie Oleson. But more than just reminiscing about what happened behind the scenes, Arngrim shares how being the most hated teen in television changed her life and helped her succeed, in spite of her terrible home life. More than just a behind-the-scenes expose, Arngrim's biography is both a moving and comic look at overcoming difficult situations, coming out on top despite tragedy, and finding joy in life no matter what.
