A warm, Intimate coming of age story about a girl who would become one of the most influential women in the world.
Author: Michelle Obama
Summary:Former first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama has had a life like most of us only dream about. Growing up in humble and austere beginnings on the south side of Chicago, pursuing studies and a career in law, marrying a man who will one day be the most powerful person in the western world, and in a matter of years, being thrust upon the world stage as a figure of hope, of change, and of becoming. This incredibly honest memoir goes into emotional detail about the experiences and sometimes struggles of her life — being subject to public opinion at every turn, acting as a beacon of hope to African-American and marginalised communities around the United States and the world, and at the same time, fulfilling her role as a mother to her two daughters. Told in her own words and on her own terms, Michelle Obama’s Becoming is a rare look into an inspirational life of triumphs, disappointments, achievements and fighting for what’s right.
