This is a collection of stories detailing Gabrielle Union’s childhood, relationships and career.
I highly, highly recommend everyone listen to this book immediately. Gabrielle Union is the one narrating her story and it truly add to the reading experience.
This was a wonderful example of why I reach for celebrity memoirs. Union is able to break the barrier and let the readers see into her world. While listening to the audiobook, I felt that I was having more of an conversation with the author.
Union didn’t shy away from discussing her black identity in a white school, failed marriage or her rape. She talked about the hardships of raising black young men in this time where there is so much violence ant at times very little sense.
This book was heart breaking and entertaining. She offered some wonderful advice and great insight to what it means to be a woman of color trying to succeed.
I gave this book an A.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
