A warm and witty memoir by Danielle Fishel—“a talented actor who has always led with her heart” (Ben Savage)—the beloved star of the ’90s sitcom Boy Meets World and its hilarious new spin-off, Girl Meets World.
Best known for playing Topanga Lawrence on Boy Meets World, Danielle Fishel was the quintessential girl-next-door for seven years as she joined 10 million viewers in their living rooms every Friday from 1993 to 2000. The real Danielle is just as entertaining and down-to-earth as the character she portrayed on her hit show. But life even for a successful actress can be messy, from disastrous auditions to dating mishaps and awkward red carpet moments.
Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern is a fun romp through Danielle’s own imperfections. It’s a book for anyone who, like Danielle, has ever tripped and fallen down a flight of stairs in a room full of people, had a romantic moment with a significant other ruined by gas, or taken a Halloween photo without realizing there was a huge chunk of strawberry in their teeth. Here is the real, imperfect Danielle, who knows that a good sense of humor and a positive attitude makes life so much more enjoyable. Even when you’ve just face-planted in front of Ben Affleck.
Danielle Fishel is an actress and TV host best known as America’s first television crush, Topanga Lawrence, from the hit 1990s sitcom Boy Meets World and the eagerly anticipated spin-off, Girl Meets World.
