'Where Am I Now?' is due out in September

(Ari Scott)

You’ll know her face from her starring roles in classic films Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire, but if you’ve ever seen her Twitter, you might also know that Mara Wilson isn’t just a “former child star” — she’s a sharp, witty writer as well.

This September, Wilson will release Where Am I Now?, a memoir told through a series of essays, covering both her time in Hollywood and what came after. EW is excited to reveal the cover of Wilson’s memoir below — but first, check out its official description, here:

Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and a little out of place: as the only child on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, the sole clinically depressed member of the cheerleading squad, a valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and an adult the world still remembers as a little girl. Tackling everything from how she first learned about sex on the set of Melrose Place, to losing her mother at a young age, to getting her first kiss (or was it kisses?) on a celebrity canoe trip, to not being “cute” enough to make it in Hollywood, these essays tell the story of one young woman’s journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity. But they also illuminate a universal struggle: learning to accept yourself, and figuring out who you are and where you belong.
