Review:

"O'Neal's life story will garner attention because of her famous son, basketball superstar Shaquille O'Neal. Lucille was raised by strict, church-going grandparents and struggled with feeling unloved. She also had low self-esteem, in part because 'I was six feet by the time I was twelve.' She gave birth to Shaquille when she was 17, eventually marrying a soldier when her son was two years old. Lucille spent the next two decades mothering Shaquille and his three siblings, dealing with army life, and seeing her eldest through college years and his first years in the NBA. Lucille also struggled with drinking and unhappiness, finally coming to terms with life after her mother's death. She returned to school, divorced, and returned to faith; now she says, 'I'm the happiest and most satisfied I've ever been.' Some may wish for more depth and flair, but the story, like Lucille, is simple and direct. Fans and celebrity followers will gain information and insights into the star's early life, but they'll also come away inspired thanks to Mom O'Neal." Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Lucille O'Neal shares her public battles and personal struggles as a young, single mother of NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal.

Lucille O'Neal would one day have it all, but not before fighting the public battles and personal demons that would threaten to shatter the very foundation of her life while taking their devastating toll along the way.

Over the past 16 years, Lucille O'Neal has become one of the best-known mothers of a celebrity athlete. But behind the scenes, the mother of four has her own story, at once heartbreakingly familiar in its pain and yet wonderfully inspirational in its outcome.

In this memoir, O'Neal candidly describes the pain of being an outcast and the stigma of becoming an unwed, teenage mother. Most interestingly, she candidly shares another side of fame and fortune-a side rarely revealed or admitted in public: her unexpected feelings of anger and resentment towards her son's blinding success.
