Summary

"This is is the truth as we know it. I have read so much about what people think they know about Michael, but this is about what really happened."
—Jermaine Jackson

You Are Not Alone is an intimate, loving portrait of Michael Jackson, illuminating the private man like never before. It is an invitation into Michael’s real character, private insights, and hidden feelings: the innermost thoughts of a fiercely private individual. Jermaine Jackson knew Michael like only a brother can.

Jermaine here brings light to the man behind the mask of superstardom, an identity that has lingered in the shadows for too long. You Are Not Alone is a celebration of the real Michael: the boy who shared a tiny bunkbed with Jermaine at 2300 Jackson Street, Gary, Indiana; the brother with whom Jermaine shared laughter, tears, and memories; the boy who would grow up to become a legend. Raw, honest and incredibly moving, You Are Not Alone is also a sophisticated, no-holds-barred examination of Michael Jackson, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who he was and what shaped him. This is Michael Jackson - the man, not the legend - through a brother’s eyes.

If you love Michael Jackson, this is the only book you will need. If you think you know the Michael Jackson story, it’s time to think again.

An 'Ok' book regarding Michael Jackson

Nothing new discussed, Jermaine Jackson Jr has a very monotone voice - doesn't take punctuation into consideration when he reads. I found it hard to follow.

An Ok book regarding Michael Jackson. I've read better.

A Tragic Story

I was captivated by this story from start to finish. The pace ran quickly and it sometimes felt as if we were being whisked through time. The recollection of painful moments, especially the saddest period of all almost felt surreal, but I didn't want to miss a moment of what I was being told, as the retelling of events was so important. It's literal history from a behind the scenes perspective, and as a result, you don't want to miss a moment.

i know that i wanted to cry in several places, so i cannot imagine what this poor family went through. i just know that it was heartbreaking to listen to, and i feel very emotional thinking back over, and digesting what I've just heard.

Michael Jackson truly was Gone Too Soon.
