Book Review: The Light We Carry by Michelle Obama


Josephine Caplan, Spread Editor

Michelle Obama just released a second autobiography, The Light We Carry, that is just as outstanding and remarkable as the first. A perfect pick-me-up for any reader, the novel highlights some stories from Obama’s life while simultaneously giving out advice on how to handle challenging situations. It emphasizes the importance of making meaningful relationships and trying to live life to the fullest. The book sheds light to the idea that everyone is special, and no one is truly alone. It brings to light the flaws in our country, while allowing the reader to see the hope for a better future.It’s the most inspirational autobiography I’ve read in a while. If it’s possible to get therapy from a book, you’ll get it from this one. I guarantee you that this novel will make you love Obama even more. 10/10 recommend.
