Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8–10—This biography is enjoyable reading for those writing reports and for those who simply want to learn more about the First Lady. As well as covering her life with Barack Obama and in the White House, Uschan discusses her family life, education, and early career and includes sidebars on such topics as her experience as a black student at mostly white Ivy League schools. Quotes from interviews with Obama reveal her intelligence, humor, and down-to-earth sensibility. On having her mother walk the Obama girls to school, for example, she says, "it's less of a scene for her." The book's overall tone is positive, although there is mention of criticism she has received in the press during the campaign and as First Lady. Back matter includes extensive notes.—Rebecca Donnelly, Loma Colorado Public Library, Rio Rancho, NM
