Becoming by Michelle Obama (2018)
You'll be empowered, inspired and humbled by the incredible memoir by Michelle Obama. She gives an honest, funny and often emotional account of her beginnings as a young black girl living in Chicago, to her ambitious teenage years that got her to Havard, to her time as a high-flying lawyer who fell in love with a man who, later on, decided he wanted to run for President of the United States. With insight into her bold career moves, loving but imperfect marriage and principled parenthood, it's an intimate way to get to know this quietly powerful, resoundingly kind and ever-optimistic woman. It's uplifting as well as enthralling, and very much like talking to a friend about her life, instead of reading about politics.
