"Missing Mrs. O already? A new book reminds us why she remains a woman for our times...All the essays stand out as each writer stands up and attests to the ways in which Michelle Obama has defied stereotypes and pushed forward a vision and version of Black women that have always been there, but have often gone unacknowledged." ―Essence
"Reflections on a woman who feels like a good girlfriend to a large portion of the American public, though they only know her from afar." ―NPR Code Switch
"A series of thoughtful meditations on the complexities of the woman who is both partner to the leader of the free world and a powerful American figure in her own right. The Obama in these pages is both an icon and a homegirl. The writers take her seriously yet still write about her playfully." ―The Washington Post
"Praises the groundbreaking First Lady from arms to alms." ―Vanity Fair
"Thoughtful, textured and evocative. For many black women, it will be a soothing reiteration of things they already feel and know about a woman they already love. For many others, it could be a fascinating window." ―Newsday
"A marvelous collection that taps into the love ― not just admiration, though that's certainly there; not just respect, though it's there too ― so many Americans have for the South Side girl-turned-Washington royalty." ―The Chicago Tribune
"Features 16 essays about the First Lady and the impact she's had on the U.S., with 'Hamilton' alum Phillipa Soo and writer Roxane Gay among those sharing their insights." ―The Hollywood Reporter
"[A] timely homage to forever first lady Michelle Obama [...] a good book to help ease your way through the end of the Obama presidency." ―The Huffington Post
"Sixteen writers...share what it’s been like to witness Michelle Obama in the White House. 'Witness' is the correct word. The first thing most writers admit is that they've been unable to take their eyes off her." ―The New York Times
"An engaging and delightful collection to help readers recognize that Michelle Obama is a distinct American icon." ―Library Journal
"Read it and shake things up yourself this year." ―Dr. Oz The Good Life
"A diverse collection united by admiration in a 'praise song' anthology." ―Bookpage
"A glorious tribute to an incredible woman." ―Booklist (Starred Review)
"Gratitude resonates through each offering in this compilation, a warm tribute to an inspiring woman of color who has lived in the public eye for more than eight years." ―Publisher's Weekly
"The variety of contributors allows for different perspectives on their common subject―as a fashion icon, a cultural arbiter, the self-proclaimed "mom-in-chief," partner in a mutual girl crush with Beyoncé, fitness and food advocate, and a wife who supports but does not defer." ―Kirkus Reviews
