Becoming by Michelle Obama

I thoroughly enjoyed "Becoming".  Michelle Obama tells her story, from her childhood on Chicago's southside to her college and working years, to her family's time in the White House.  I especially enjoyed her stories about Barack's proposal, the White House petting zoo, and riding with Queen Elizabeth in a car.  I appreciated learning more about the pitfalls and successes of the initiatives she undertook as First Lady.  Overall, the book is a portrait of a resilient, strong , intelligent, compassionate woman who cares deeply about her family as well as doing good for society.

Verdict:  Add your name to the hold list -- we have 3 copies so you won't have to wait forever!
