This book by President Obama's half sister on his father's side is well-written and interesting. She rather gushes over President Obama (as do I) but that takes up relatively little of the book. Mostly she writes of her own life in Kenya, Germany, and England. She writes of her growing up in Kenya, about her university years in Germany, about her marriages and living in England. It's an easy but worthwhile book.
