Overview

"Regardless of how much money you have, your race, where you live, what religion you follow, you are going through something. Or you already have or you will. As momma always said, "Everybody's got something."

So begins beloved Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts's new memoir in which she recounts the incredible journey that's been her life so far, and the lessons she's learned along the way. With grace, heart, and humor, she writes about overcoming breast cancer only to learn five years later that she will need a bone marrow transplant to combat a rare blood disorder, the grief and heartbreak she suffered when her mother passed away, her triumphant return to GMA after her medical leave, and the tremendous support and love of her family and friends that saw her through her difficult times.

Following her mother's advice to "make your mess your message," Robin taught a nation of viewers that while it is true that we've all got something -- a medical crisis to face, aging parents to care for, heartbreak in all its many forms --- we've also all got something to give: hope, encouragement, a life-saving transplant or a spirit-saving embrace. As Robin has learned, and what readers of her remarkable story will come to believe as well, it's all about faith, family and friends. And finding out that you are stronger, much stronger, than you think.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

As a sports broadcaster and Good Morning America anchor, Robin Roberts has been in the public eye for more than thirty years. She has covered the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on her hometown; interviewed Miley Cyrus as a guest star on Hannah Montana; and been inducted in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame; but perhaps nothing she did touched the public more than the candor she displayed when speaking about her mother's death and her own rare blood disorder. In a sense, her late mother presides over this book, one of her habitual comments serving as its title. As always, Roberts' reflections on her experiences are never exercises in self-pity; rather, they serve as examples of problems that we all have.

From the Publisher
"Following her mother's time-honored advice to "make your mess your message," Roberts offers an inspiring memoir of her life, from her home base in Mississippi to her home in New York and the glamorous though grueling life of a television reporter...With the infectious personality for which she's known, Roberts details the support of family and friends and the people she's met in her life and career who've inspired her by overcoming their own challenges with the "something" that everybody inevitably faces."
