5.0 étoiles sur 5 Powerful memoir by Bieber's mom, detailing her path to Christian faith amid turmoil and hardship. 19 septembre 2012
Par K. Corn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
It would be easy to label this book as one told by "Justin Bieber's mom", having no merit beyond that, especially since the title of Pattie Mallette's book includes the words, "The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom.".

But to focus only on her famous son as a reason to purchase Nowhere but Up could lessen the possible impact of Pattie Mallette's heartbreaking yet ultimately powerful and inspiring faith-based memoir and limit its readership. It is definitely worth checking out even though Mallette's life and journey to Christianity may not appeal to everyone.

But to dismiss her unique voice and experience would be a mistake - and also sadly ironic since Mallette struggled long and hard to find that voice and tell her story. It is one which deserves attention, especially by those who have gone through painful childhoods or suffered abuse.

Perhaps Mallette puts it best when she notes, early on in the book, - about her motivation for sharing her experiences, good and bad:" I decided to tell my story not only for my own healing from a difficult past but also to help bring healing and liberation to those of you who may have suffered in similar ways."

This point is backed up in the foreword where Bieber describes his mom as "the strongest woman I've ever met" and explains that the book underscores that fact.

From then on his mother tells her story.

Well over half of "Nowhere but Up" is about Mallette's life before Bieber entered the picture, with the first 9 chapters (there are 16 chapters in all) describing her painful childhood, the experiences that shattered her self esteem, and her search for love. Mallette alaso writes of her growing Christian faith but it is a faith that was rocked by doubt and setbacks along the way.

At one point, she recommits herself to God yet admits that she still had not "committed my sexuality to Him just yet", perhaps one reason why she and Jeremy, Bieber's father, remained in a turbulent relationship for so long. It must have taken courage for Mallette to avoid turning away from honest admissions of the choices she made and the consequences she faced - including an unexpected pregnancy.

Of course, that pregnancy led to the birth of the now famous Justin Bieber but how many know the details of his mother's life before fame struck? As Mallette notes, she "survived single motherhood by sheer willpower and a ton of prayer." She also rose to the challenge by making different choices...with some rough patches along the way... after her son was born.

As one might expect for a book dedicated to her heavenly Father, Mallette also describes the awe she felt when her prayers were answered in spite of her doubts. The apartment that came along when homelessness seemed like the only option, the financial windfall which gave her a chance to find a better job, and more.

And Mallette is clearly grateful to have Justin in her life. Her love for him is unwavering, even when Justin's energy and boisterous nature leads to challenges at school - and with at least one landlord. While other parents might have quashed their child's spirit, Mallette finds a way for him to share his musical talents. Most know the rest of that story.

Again, would readers want to buy this book if it wasn't about Bieber's mom? Maybe not. But they should. A special bonus is an extensive photo section titled A Journey Through the Years.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm not a teenage fan, but a fellow Christian... 19 septembre 2012
Par What's her face? - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Well people... I read it in one night! I couldn't put it down. It was so well written and with the right motives. My heart jumped and I could really feel the love of God pouring out. Let me tell you... for most of the book I forgot whose mother she was. She was so open, honest and just plain raw about her past hurts, the pain she had to endure, her shortcomings, but also the stark contrast with God's awesome love and amazing grace. In my mind, this was an amazing Christian testimony of how wonderful and loving our God is despite the many obstacles we go through in life. I found myself choking back tears of joy and smiling as I walked through her journey. Sometimes, I was just in awe with my jaw literally dropping. It's a moving walk through the tests and triumphs of Pattie's life to date.

Fellow readers, I believe you will find this book uplifting and encouraging. This is a story about a woman whom God had plans for... BIG plans! And just to encourage you, God has no favorites, what He did for one, He will do for you (Acts 10:34-35 MSG). I'm not saying all of you will have superstar celebrity sons, but rather that He has a great purpose and plan for each of us if we will just let go of control and trust Him. This book reminds us to not look at our circumstance, but keep our eyes on the Lord who always exceeds our expectations. Further, even when we turn away from Him, He pursues us. It was such a beautiful book, humbly written, and points to our Lord and Savior. Well done Pattie and A.J., Well done! I highly recommend!!

P.S. I purposely didn't go into content so as to not spoil the journey, but I did want to set good expectations. I hope this helps.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 GET OVER IT????? 21 septembre 2012
Par Carol808 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book was cathartic for me as it must be for many women. Patty Mallette goes straight to the underlying causes and trauma that has led to her self- dislike and low self esteem. I'm barely past chapter five and already she has touched on many of the emotional issues that I have had and which I felt that I was the only girl in the world who felt these feelings. Patty is right on. The book brings up many issues for those of us that still carry the self-hatred but at the same time this book gives us HOPE. Patty has walked in our shoes. And she can help us walk, too.

To anyone who says "Get over it" I suggest that you read the book again as obviously you HAVEN'T walked in our shoes. No victim of this type of abuse justs 'gets over it'. It's a comment that denies us any dignity by down-playing trauma and brushing it aside. We've brushed it aside long enough!

And to Patty- It really struck home for me in the chapter where your girlfriends at school suddenly, without warning said they no longer wanted to be your friend and didn't want you hanging around with them. I cried because it happened to me and I was completely devistated for what seemed like months. I didn't "just get over it". We are people who cling to people so they'll be our friends and when they turn against us the pain is immense. Normal people wouldn't understand, but there are those of us that certainly DO understand. Thanks for writing it. And my grand-daughter wants to thank you for Justin!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A good read 1 novembre 2012
Par B. Berry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I am not one of those teen girls who scream, cry, and faint at the sight of Justin Bieber. But I can't deny that he is very talented. I love his songs, I just worry that I am a bit too old to be swooning over him. That being said, I totally watched his movie on Netflix last summer. I was amazed at the natural talent that oozes from that child and continues shine through the adult that (wow!) he now is today. It was amazing to see the journey that he went through to become who he is today. That being said, I always wondered about his mom.

This story isn't really about Justin. Its about the trials and strengths of a woman who overcame a lot and whose proudest accomplished is raising a great son. Not a pop star, but a good, hard working son. She worked hard to provide for their little family and to give Justin as many opportunities that she could. It was inspiring to read, and it makes me really thing about what qualities I want my sons to have, and how to encourage them to become the men I would like them to be.

I give this book 3 stars out of 5. It was good, graphic in places, adult eyes only.
