Melissa Explains it All

Tales from My Abnormally Normal Life

By Melissa Joan Hart with Kristina Grish

As a cultural icon of the 90s, Melissa Joan Hart played the title roles in the trailblazing Nickelodeon series Clarissa Explains It All and wildly popular Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but she never let fame go to her head. From her first acting gig at age four to her current success as an actress, director, and producer, Hart’s worked hard to maintain an “ordinary life,” while also jam-packing it full of extraordinary moments and memories. 

Melissa Explains It All is as forthright and funny as Melissa herself. Here, she tells stories about her childhood and family, her career, those rebellious teen years, the actors she’s worked with, competed against, and befriended—not to mention, her hilarious efforts to fit in, stand out, and juggle the roles of wife, mother, and TV star. 


“A delightful and refreshingly honest memoir about growing up Melissa/Clarissa/Sabrina. Women who grew up with her will go wild for this book.”

–Delia Ephron, author

“I loved Melissa’s book! Her voice is so unique and strong. As a reader, I felt in the moment, as if Melissa were telling me her stories first-hand.”

–Tori Spelling, actress and author
