In this memoir, Lucille O’Neal shares her life struggles from the stigma of being a teen mother to raising four children in poverty to her sons rise to fame. Her story reveals that she is not “just Shaquille O’Neal’s mom”.
Expect to go from laughter to tears as you read Lucille’s growth from a young woman with a lack of self-esteem (what she calls mental welfare), lack of self-love, lack of SELF to becoming the strong intelligent woman she is today through hope and perseverance.
‘Lucille, walk like you have somewhere to go.’, Lucille O’Neal’s pastor told her many years before as a self-conscious teenager – a teenager all too aware of the unusual six foot tall frame she had attained by the age of 12. The advice of that pastor ‘ along with Lucille’s own inner strength, faith in God and determination ‘ bring about a total transformation in her life.
This book is a real winner. I felt like I was sitting right beside Lucille as I read on, almost as if I were right there as her story unfolded rather than reading it in a novel much later on. This novel is a must for all women, it taught me many things ‘ including how to listen to myself better.
