What’s important is our story, our whole story, including those moments when we feel a little vulnerable…
Michelle Robinson started life sharing a bedroom with her older brother Craig, in their family’s upstairs appartment in her great aunt’s house. Her parents, Fraser and Marian, poured their love and energy into their children. She would go on to become Michelle Obama, the inspirational first lady of the United States of America.
Now adapted for younger readers, with new photographs and a new introduction from Michelle Obama herself, this memoir tells a very personal, and completely inspiring, story of how, through hard work and determination, the girl from the South Side of Chicago built an extraordinary life.
A tale of ups and downs, triumphs and failures, this is an incredibly honest account. It’ll take you from the early years – first kiss, first school, first love – to the wonders of the White House, and the moment Mrs Obama shook hands with the Queen of England.
Above all, this is a book to make you think: who are you, and what do you want to become?
