Because of this, I was kind of excited to receive You Have No Idea from the BlogHer book club. Written by Vanessa Williams and her mom Helen, I was looking forward to reading her story, including more about the Miss America pageant.
I got that, and more. I loved reading her mom's commentary on the same stories, as well as discovering how Vanessa herself put so many potential setbacks behind her to become a success. Despite multiple times where her career could have ended, she kept moving forward, working harder and harder, with her mom by her side. Their relationship is central to the story and a great look at an amazing mother-daughter pair.
