Publisher's Summary

In addition to the balancing act of juggling an all-consuming music career and her family, TLC's Tionne has struggled with sickle-cell disease since she was a young girl - a debilitating and incurable disease that can render her unable to perform, walk, or even breathe.

A Sick Life chronicles Tionne's journey from a childhood spent in and out of the hospital, told she wouldn't live to see 30 or have children, to becoming the superstar musician who is still living out her life's dream of performing. For the first time, Tionne will tell her full life story - the diagnosis, the tumultuous rise to fame, the life in the spotlight, and the hard-fought advocacy work. Through Tionne's tough, funny, tell-it-like-it-is voice, you'll see how the extraordinary singer and advocate found the inner strength, grit, and determination to live her dream - despite her often unpredictable and demanding health issues.

She dives deep into never-before-told TLC stories, including accounts of her friendship with Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes and the tragedy of her death. Tionne's unvarnished discussion of her disease, unending strength, and ability to power through the odds is a story like no other.

    Story
    "Touching and inspiring on so many levels! "

    Beautifully written and told, this memoir provides first hand insight into one of the hardest working woman in the entertainment industry's life. Truly inspiring and real, it touched my heart and solidified my love for T-boz and of TLC. My life would not be the same if it weren't for their music. I am grateful to be able to read such amazing stories and thoughts by Tionne. Her book of prose and poetry Thoughts is equally as inspiring, I recommend both. Thank you for sharing your life story with us T. "Dreams" gives me hope and makes me appreciate those closest to me in my life. Your words and this song warm my bitter black heart.

    "Its all good"

    This was a fantastic book. I have been living off of what I've heard in the news Hearing the whole story from the horses mouth was eye opening. I had no idea. T-Boz is a trooper may God continue to bless her. Great story!

    "M.T.B."

    Definitely an in-depth continuation of the TLC story from VH-1. It was great to hear the prospective of T-Boz and her life as a group member, as well as, an individual.

    Story
    "T-Boz the Champion"

    I have absolutely loved TLC since I was 7 years old. From their wardrobe to their lyrics, TLC has had a major impact on my life. I've always favored T-Boz because she's tough. You can tell from her demeanor that she's here to stay. Over the years, She's reinforced my belief that some things you can't change so you fight through. Reading "A Sick Life", there were moments that made me laugh and cry. Tionne gets so intimate in this book. She makes it like she's your best friend. I love her even more now. And, thank you for continuing to fight and teaching everyone else to do the same. I highly recommend this book.

    "Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins"

    I've been a TLC fan from the beginning. T-Boz, the cool one, was always my favorite. I enjoyed hearing her story... at least, the parts she chose to share.
