The Grammy Award-winning American soul and gospel singer and mother of Whitney Houston reflects on her daughter's life, the events that led up to her death and the aftermath of a senseless tragedy.
Cissy has said little publicly about Whitney's heart-breaking death. Now she opens up and shares the unbelievable story of her daughter's life, as well as her own, and addresses Whitney's brightest and darkest moments. With candor and respect, she sets the record straight about Whitney, exploring both her turbulent marriage and her misunderstood struggles with drug abuse. Cissy goes behind the tabloid headlines to show fans around the world the true, human side of a strong, successful-- yet flawed-- musical icon who died much too young.

This book should be titled, "The Autobiography of Cissy Houston. And I also threw a bit of stuff in about my famous daughter.” While I realize this book is written from Cissy’s perspective on Whitney, it was truly unnecessary for Cissy to incessantly talk about herself, brag about her career and one Grammy, include photos of herself and her discography. I was thinking it was a shameless attempt at self-promotion in order to get cash and nearly quit reading it but managed to trudge though. I’m glad I did as the second half is quite moving and is actually about Whitney Houston. If I bought this book I would try to take it back. Definitely a library read.

Cissy Houston is extremely honest in this memoir. She paints everyone in her family, including herself, in a truthful and realistic light. An immensely enjoyeable book.

A mothers words somewhat real and one sided makes you realize no family is perfect not bad reading but sad as well
