Publisher's Summary

"Regardless of how much money you have, your race, where you live, what religion you follow, you are going through something. Or you already have or you will. As momma always said, 'Everybody's got something.'"

So begins beloved Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts' new memoir in which she recounts the incredible journey that's been her life so far, and the lessons she's learned along the way. With grace, heart, and humor, she writes about overcoming breast cancer only to learn five years later that she will need a bone marrow transplant to combat a rare blood disorder, the grief and heartbreak she suffered when her mother passed away, her triumphant return to GMA after her medical leave, and the tremendous support and love of her family and friends that saw her through her difficult times.

Following her mother's advice to "make your mess your message", Robin taught a nation of viewers that while it is true that we've all got something - a medical crisis to face, aging parents to care for, heartbreak in all its many forms - we've also all got something to give: Hope, encouragement, a life-saving transplant or a spirit-saving embrace. As Robin has learned, and what listeners of her remarkable story will come to believe as well, it's all about faith, family and friends. And finding out that you are stronger, much stronger, than you think.

    "Thank God for Robin Roberts"

    Having just come out of a season of loss, this book was a real life saver. Thank you Robin for writing it, and for sharing some of your (and family) philosophies. Its so true -- everyone's got something, so dust it off and keep after it. Pray, love and be true. That is all that matters.

    Story
    "An upbeat story"

    Along with many people in the country I became aware of Robin Roberts diagnosis of MDS and pending bone marrow transplant while watching Diane Sawyer on ABC Nightly News. This book is astonishingly honest and refreshingly upbeat as Roberts tells the shock of discovering once again she had to fight for her life. Roberts, a hall of fame college basketball player and host on ABC’s Good Morning America T.V. show tells the story of her recent bone marrow transplant. This new diagnosis was apparently an unusual complication of her prior chemotherapy for breast cancer. All her family was tested for a match and her sister Sally Ann was a match and was willing to donate her bone marrow stem cells to Robin. Just prior to beginning the critical phase of the procedure her Mother died. She tells how she manages to deal with the grief and the transplant together. The books co-author is Veronica Chambers. Roberts tells about all the people from close friends, family, colleagues from ABC and ESPN as well as viewer of GMA supported her in her recovery. She tells how fortunate she has been in having a great supportive family. Following her mother’s advice to make her mess her mission, Roberts is pushing for publicity for transplant donors. The book is well written with candor and optimism and is a remarkable book that offers a blueprint for handling crisis in one’s life. Robin Roberts did an excellent job narrating the book.

    "Disappointing"

    Some wonderful moments...making your mess you message and everybody's got something, and can never have enough gratitude. Too much repetition though, and too much of all the names.
