You Have to Stand for Something, or You’ll Fall for Anything by Star Jones
This is powerful and intense personal memoir from Star’s upbringing, which she openly discusses in this book with warmth, humor, and sometimes painful candor. She writes of the illness that almost took her life, the difficult relationship with her biological father, the life tools gained from her stepfather, the foundation established from her grandparents, and the bond she shares with her mother.
Her complete foundation helped to make her the “star” and woman she became and to see limitless possibilities even from a small town in North Carolina.
An amazing read that provides examples of wisdom, excellence and growth!
