I’M SOMEBODY’S MAMA by Catherine Tyson, is a series of conversations by one woman who dares to believe that despite what society says about a single mother with three children, like all other women, she is a queen! This is a true journey of daily self-discovery, self -acceptance and ultimately of fulfillment.

This book is gripped with humor, is tender at heart and embraces with courage life’s conflicts that everyone inevitably faces. Like life…this book is segmented into short footsteps that take on incredible moods from one stride to the next.

Whether it’s about motherhood, children, not having a man, someone else’s man, no-good men (have I said too much about men?)… Tyson successfully brings to life abstract feelings into moving, jumping, dancing characters that make the journey of life so colorful.

I’M SOMEBODY’S MAMA is a must read…Its like having a little secret weapon tucked under one’s arm that whispers ‘I might not be where I want to be…yet, but I am happy with who I am”…it’s self acceptance…the greatest gift you can give yourself and the world.

Through Tyson’s life, it shows that no matter where you are…you are going to be just fine…From walking out on faith with three little ones in tow, to attending university against all odds and obtaining a bachelor’s degree and later to undertaking a Master’s degree in the midst of all the turmoil, it shows tenacity and focus to a fault.  In each recollection, she glares her demons in the face while making sacrifices that ultimately result in a fight that can have no other winners but she and her babies.


It’s a sharp and witty celebration of life as somebody, even if it’s just being SOMEBODY’S MAMA.
