The book is an amazing factual story demonstrating what unwavering faith truly can do to build and sustain a loving family. The book reads fast as it is so fascinating. After reading the book, you will feel inspired to take on any challenge no matter what obstacles lay before you. The author does a great job of painting a picture of the 70's and just how big the Jackson Five were at the time. If you want to be encouraged, inspired, stimulated, motivated and entertained than I highly urge you to read this book.
From the first chapter, this amazing account of a mother's strength and determination to live outside the box and follow the yellow brick road will lead you on a journey you wish would never end! if you grew up in the 1970s you will especially appreciate the trip through the era's popular culture; whether you care to remember it or not I dare you not to smile! The rich detail in the narrative puts the reader center stage and takes you right along on this family's seemingly impossible quest to meet their favorite performers. I could not imagine this happening today! I think the key was one mother's love to another; a family to a family, regardless of fame or stature, that is the most heartwarming aspect of this book. Read it and pay it forward to someone who could use a boost of spirit!
What an amazing book and an amazing journey! This book was truly inspirational in showing you can achieve anything you want, if you put your mind to it. You really felt Colette’s excitement over the music and of course Michael Jackson. It made me want to listen to every recording The Jacksons has ever made. I felt like I was actually on my way to "The Jacksons” with the lucky Luckie family. I don't want to give anything away but this is definitely a must read and one of my favorite books of the year! You will not be disappointed.
