Michelle Obama has been by her husband's side throughout his historic presidential campaign, a dynamic personality whether she is delivering speeches or hitting the dance floor on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

I read this book and found it extremely informative. As a classroom teacher I truly appreciate the research this author did on Michelle's heritage. Showing the connections to the First Lady and her slave ancestors provides minority readers with a realistic vision of hopefulness. Read full review
