Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. An inspirational First Lady of the United States of America, she helped create a truly welcoming and inclusive White House. She established herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changed the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and stood by her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments.
In her memoir Michelle Obama invites younger readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms.
