This biography for young readers focuses on Michelle Obama's youth. A good supplementary source for home and classroom use, especially as the now former First Lady's book Becoming brings her renewed attention.

Follow the story of a hardworking girl growing up on the South Side of Chicago and how she inspires our nation to believe in the American Dream that her life exemplifies. In her own stirring words: America should be a place where you can make it if you try.

Written by David Bergen Brophy, this in-depth biography for young readers captures the heart and soul of the First Lady behind the campaign for change.
