A memoir from singer-songwriter Madison Beer, chronicling the past decade of her life spent in the spotlight—the ups, the downs, and the in-betweens that you won’t see on social media.

Discovered at twelve years old, Madison Beer was one of the first artists to have her entire life documented online. Over the past decade, she has navigated the spotlight as a child, through her teenage years, and now as a young woman in her twenties.

In The Half of It, Madison pulls back the curtain to show the behind-the-scenes of her journey, from reckoning with mass hate online and the time her private pictures were leaked, to battling suicidal thoughts while making her highly acclaimed debut album, Life Support, and her recovery since then. This memoir is an honest and unflinching account of self-love, mental health, and advocacy from one of the fastest-rising musical voices and most influential social media presences of her generation. It hammers home the point, more striking and urgent than ever, that no matter how close the internet may make us feel to people, we truly don’t know the half of it.

    Ive been a fan of Madison since the beginning, but you don’t need to be a fan to LOVE this book. This book was an incredibly vulnerable lens into Madison’s life and experiences that simultaneously makes the reader feel less alone in dealing with their own mental health struggles. She touches on so many important topics that plague todays society but in a way that is relatable and understandable. Thank you for opening up to us and doing so in such a beautiful way! I love you!!!

    Thank you Madison Beer for this insight in your mind and what you have been going through. This is so important to know and to realize how much an impact online bullying can do to someone. I had the privilege to read about Madison’s journey and story. Glass houses was my favorite chapter. I believe everyone who has an online social media account should read this book. And anyone who judges madison beer without knowing who she really is. Don’t make a comment on anyone because you don’t know their story. Love u Madison and know you are not alone. Twt @madsuppcrt
