Around the Way Girl by Taraji P. Henson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved Taraji P. Henson anyway (big Person of Interest fan here), but I love her 1000% more after reading how smart, witty, insightful, grounded, and hard-working she is. She's just a really neat person. Yes, she's friends with Mary J. Blige, but she's also really, really real.
This book isn't a literary masterpiece; it's a quick read, organized around several themes such as family and friends rather than a strict chronology. But it's a fun book about a genuinely good person.
I purchased this book with my own funds from Half Price Books (not an affiliate link) and was not obligated in any way to review it.
