Beautifully written and exceptionally narrated by Michelle Obama herself. I didn't want it to end... I kept thinking, "I know the plot twist; I'm not ready!" It moved me to tears more than once for what our country has lost, but also for what we were witness to in having such a remarkable family leading our nation for 8 years.

Wow. She speaks so openly about her feelings, even though I am sure she was limited to what she could actually tell. I have a feeling she wanted to say even more.
But I am nothing but full of respect for her courage to take on that journey with her husband, and I am really glad that she always watched out for a little girls.
