“Michael is amazing. I’m not saying that because he’s my son; I really do find him that way. When he is with a celebrity, he “grows up” to their age. But then he has his candy store and his doll collection, and he rolls around on the floor with his nieces and nephews as if he were a child. He’s young. He’s old. As I said, he's amazing.”

Katherine Jackson is her children's biggest fan. That's what the first and last thought that stayed in my mind while and after I finished reading her only autobio

One thing that stood out for me from this book was Mrs. Jackson's relationship with her son Michael. She shared how he was a very determined and focused young man. She said that one that he kept his room immaculate for one year but after that he went back to messy. I loved her sharing that aspect of Michael. She shares little nuances about her family that will make you smile.

I read the book when it first came out so I definitely need to dig out my copy and reread it!

This book is very old, but I love MJ and am finding it FASCINATING to learn the truth about the rise of the Jackson 5, how they got started and to get a glimpse, from mom's point of view, as to what Michael was like as a child and how they lived. Love it, though written as snippets of recollections - not one story.

As a mother of 9 I was disappointed that the book only had 62 pages. I have 8 kids, 2 stepkids and 8 grandsons and I could write more than 62 pages on just 1 of my children or grandchildren. Very minimal content and reading.

An interesting, an honest look, into the lives of the Jackson family written by the matriach of the family. Perhaps this book is not as juicy as some people would like, but I think it is a good foundation for beginning to understand some things about this family.

I gave this book a low rating because it didn't really grab my attention. I loved all the pictures though.
