Recommended if you like: Celebrity memoirs, easy-going humor, 90's television

What Its About:
Not so much the "memoir" everyone seems to be touting it to be, Normally, The Would be Cause for Concern is more anecdotal and witty stories from the life and acting career of Danielle Fishel, Topanga Lawrence in 1990's Boy Meets World.  From first losing, and then getting a second chance at, her life changing role, to driving mishaps, to awkwardly tripping at a Hollywood party and being "saved" by an ever-attractive, but much younger, Ben Afleck, Fishel shares these stories with a casual and chatty style that shows her to be just as entertaining and down-to-earth as the beloved character she portrayed and has recently resurrected, albeit 20 years older.
The Bottom Line: 
Entertaining and fun, but not earth moving. Will be enjoyed by fans, but will mostly leave readers wanting...more. A quick read, that serves as filler between a couple of really good novels.
