This must have been a very tough book to write for a mother. It's honest and moving and anyone who was a real fan of Whitney should read it.

Took me two days to read this book.. I think it was a very honest book written by her mother. Some of what was written i had heard from Whitney herself on Oprah but still, it was a most enjoyable read and i did get to know somethings about her mother that i did not already know. All in all Cissy loved her daughter and all her family and it must have really hurt so much to lose her precious baby and now, her precious grandaughter Krissi.

Fantastic read great insight to Whitney Houston life although the book was great I wish there had been more details into Whitney's adults life as I felt it was all about her growing up not much on the actual reason she ended up the way she did but still a great book

I love the way this book gave me an insight to the family. It can't have been easy for Cissy to write this. I would say though the reason Whitney felt she could not communicate to her mother over the little things is because as a child Cissy was gone far too often therefore Whitney turned to others. It definitely wasn't Bobby 's fault Whitney turned to drugs but he didn't do anything to stop it. He is still a rat in my eyes! Really good book which I'm glad I read. Thank you Cissy. Beautiful daughter Nippy and beautiful voice

This is her mother's account of her life, She is honest in saying she didn't know everything about her daughter's life, but is describes the Whitney Houston we never knew which makes it all the more tragic.

All due respect to Cissy Houston, but her view of her daughters problems were from a distance, and I think that in reality Whitney lived her personal life as a bit of a low-life, despite the fact that I've been a HUGE fan since her first album.....
I think Cissy brought up her daughter in the right way, she was obviously strict and wanted her daughter to grow up a sensible, grounded and well adjusted woman, but this wasn't to be. Whitney chose Bobby Brown.....they came together BECAUSE of drugs, not despite them....Its said that Whitney was doing drugs long before she met Bobby Brown and its important to remember that Whitneys siblings all grew up with drug abuse problems.....I'm not sure this book is a close-up and personal view of Whitneys life despite being her mother.....Cissy was obviously kept at a distance, so her account is vague and not really the way it actually was.....Whitney was blessed with Gods ultimate package, its a pity she never saw this herself....
