A deeply reported book tracing Michelle's life from her beginnings to now. She was every parent's dream, an intelligent and well-motivated school girl, going on to Princeton and then Harvard Law School. The book describes the South side of Chicago where the Robinson family grew up, Michelle's parents (her father had MS and worked for the city of Chicago, her mother stayed home) and their hard-working culture. It portrays Michelle's experience on the racially-tense campus of Princeton in the early 80s, her success at Harvard and how she experienced the death of her father and best friend. It describes how she met Obama, the kind of partnership they have created, the career as a lawyer and health care executive she pursued in Chicago, her views about political life and her aptitude for it, and her profile as a mother. Based on the public record and on interviews she has given in the past, this is the definitive biography of the new First Lady.
