      Summary: To the world, George and Barbara Bush were America's president and first lady. To Hager, they were her beloved Gampy and Ganny, who taught her about respect, humility, kindness, and living a life of passion and meaning-- timeless lessons that continue to guide her. In Midland, Texas, her maternal grandparents, Harold and Jenna Welch-- Pa and Grammee-- lived a quieter life, yet their influence was no less indelible to their granddaughter. Now the mother of three young children, Hager pays homage to her grandparents, capturing the joyous and bittersweet nature of life itself, and uplifted by their grandparents' sage advice and incomparable spirits. -- adapted from jacket

Booklist Reviews 2020 August #1

In a little over a year, Hager lost all three of her remaining grandparents. In this poignant essay collection, she recalls moments growing up under their guidance. The Bushes are a close, loving family, and the author shares the same inside views and warm moments with her famous family that made her and her twin Barbara's Sisters First (2017) such a fun read. Hager recalls fishing with her father and "Gampy" and deep conversations with her "Ganny." Both paternal grandparents offered life lessons in everything from "hang up your towel" to "be true to yourself" and modeled lives of dignity and honor. Although she didn't see her mother's parents as frequently, Hager still has fond memories of their summers spent together and wisdom shared. The author speaks honestly about the challenges of being a working mother in the social media spotlight, particularly when grieving. Sprinkled throughout are letters written to and from Hager's grandparents which speak of love and affection. Fans of the Today Show are a ready audience, but many readers will be touched by Hager's poignant prose and heartfelt recollections. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2020 July #4

In this charming memoir, Bush Hager (Sisters First), cohost of Today with Hoda & Jenna, pays tribute to her prominent family, particularly her grandparents. Bush Hager describes growing up in two presidential families: when she and her twin sister were toddlers, they "got in trouble" when Secret Service agents rescued them from a 10-foot seawall after they'd escaped from their cribs while visiting the Maine home of their grandfather, "Gampy"—President George H.W. Bush. Bush Hager's memoir is rife with charming anecdotes: dancing in her prom dress with her father (President George W. Bush) after her date jilted her, discussing books and cats with her "southern lady" mother Laura, and squabbling with her beloved sister Barbara (the author might punch, but her twin had "strong nails and wasn't afraid to use them"). Bush Hager recounts the period in which she lost both Bush grandparents, as well as her namesake Jenna Welch ("She wasn't loud and she didn't boast, but she was proud of her life and her family"). She also paints a vivid picture of strong and devoted matriarch Barbara Bush ("More than once, I have looked at my grandmother and thought, This woman is invincible"). This endearing memoir brings readers deep into the heart of a family that many may feel they already know well. Bush's fans will delight in these intimate, funny remembrances. (Sept.)
