Jennifer’s Way ($25.99, 274 pp) by award-winning actress Jennifer Esposito is a memoir profiling her struggle with celiac disease. The memoir covers her trials growing up with diverse symptoms of celiac disease, which she only received a diagnosis for in 2009, as well as her learning to take control of her health and work with the restrictions and demands the disease poses while becoming an advocate for others. A portion of proceeds from this book will go to The Jennifer’s Way Foundation, a non-profit Esposito has founded for celiac education.
