As a child of the 90s TLC was a big part of my life. Tionne T-Boz Watson was ⅓ of powerful girl group and in this book she talks about her childhood, TLC, her illness and her family.
I am not sure what I was expecting when I picked up this book. Watkins gives us a chronological view of her life from being raised by her mother, to the formation of TLC, the struggle to understand her illness and now life as a mother.
This wasn’t a TLC tell all. This book focused on all aspects of Watkins’ life maybe moreso on her sickle-cell disease. She discuss the numerous doctors visits and the uncertainty that came with this diagnosis. She talks about coming forward with her illness at a time where people feared HIV.
This was a very informative book but not necessarily the most entertaining.
I gave this book a B.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
