I enjoyed reading this story and feel that we can all learn something from it. It is not about a black family as much as it is about family values and the value of an education and the sacrifices made by wonderful and loving parents. I hope that this book will be widely read. It gave me a feeling of hope in seemingly hopeless times.

Wow!! I’m really sad to see the negative reviews from people who didn’t even read the book and more than likely part of the MAGA agenda! B&N should really remove reviews from people who did not purchase the book from B&N! The fake negative reviews are shameful. However I read ALOT of this book and all I can say is WOW! She really opened up so much and put it all out there. This book will truly give people strength and hope on so many levels. I can’t wait to see her on tour in December! Don’t listen to the negative reviews from people who didn’t even read the book. Make sure to pick up a copy. You won’t regret it.

I’m about to buy this book and read it with enthusiasm. I admire Michelle Obama and am eager to find out what makes her tick. To those who have submitted terribly hateful reviews and haven’t even read the book, to hell with your negativity, racism and dark souls.

Michelle Obama is a phenomenal woman and I'm looking forward to reading her phenomenal story.

This book is everything I expected and more. This beautifully passionate woman always captivates you with her words and as a woman, inspires me to do better. In this book, she shares her honorable journey and has the power to lighten your heart. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE.

I pre-ordered the audiobook and now I'm ordering the book. I've listened intently through the third CD at the time of this review. I'm drawn in, the writing is captivating and emotional. There are several passages in the book that I want to reflect upon, which is why I'm ordering the book so I can highlight and notate. I cannot wait to discuss this book with my friends. This is the first time that I've wanted to host a book chat. There are several references that I believe are universal experiences in a young woman's life, a young African American woman's life worth discussing further, sharing and processing. Thank you, Mrs. Obama!

Michelle Obama opens up and lets you in. She gets real personal. She talks about her pain, her fears, her dreams & her drive to always be more. And of course about her marriage & her girls. I couldn't put it down.
