This book made me sob in the best way possible. Just over two hundred pages, Nobody Will Tell You This But Me will suck you in so quickly and wholly that you leave feeling as though Grandma Bobby was your own grandmother. The small memories and phone calls and stories make it an easy but impactful read.


This book is truly one of a kind. Alyssa's Mastromonaco's fantastic storytelling and wonderful sense of humor paired with her unique point of view as a woman in the White House make her book not just another political memoir. Along with each riveting story, she gives advice and offers heartwarming reassurance to anyone, whether you're at a major crossroads in life or are simply stuck wearing jeans while meeting the Queen.
