With a sensibility that recalls her beloved screen characters, including Yvette, Queenie, Shug, and the iconic Cookie from Empire, yet is all Taraji, the screen actress writes of her families - the one she was born into and the one she created. She shares stories of her father, a Vietnam vet who was bowed but never broken by life's challenges, and of her mother, who survived violence both in the home and on DC's volatile streets. Here, too, she opens up about her experiences as a single mother.

Love, love, loved this book...I couldn't wait to hop in the car and hit play. A little sad that I'm done with the book because I won't get to hear his voice to start my day...I have a few other books I need to listen to and read before I listen to Wake Up Happy again...yes I will listen again!
