Publisher's Summary

The Emmy Award-winning legal journalist and co-host of The View Sunny Hostin chronicles her journey from growing up in a South Bronx housing project to becoming an assistant US attorney and journalist in this powerful memoir that offers an intimate and unique look at identity, intolerance, and injustice.

“What are you?” has followed Sunny Hostin from the beginning of her story, as she grew up half Puerto Rican and half African-American raised by teenage parents in the South Bronx. Escaping poverty and the turbulence of her early life through hard work, a bit of luck and earning academic scholarships to college and law school, Sunny immersed herself in the workings of the criminal justice system. 

In Washington, D.C., Sunny became a federal prosecutor, soon parlaying her wealth of knowledge of the legal system into a successful career as a legal journalist. She was one of the first national reporters to cover Trayvon Martin’s death - which her producers erroneously labeled “just a local story.”  

Today, an inescapable voice from the top echelons of news and entertainment, Sunny uses her platform to advocate for social justice and give a voice to the marginalized. In her signature no-holds-barred, straight-up style, Sunny opens up and shares her intimate struggles with fertility and personal turmoil, and reflects on the high-stakes cases and stories she worked on as a prosecutor and during her time at CNN, Fox News, ABC, and The View

Timely, poignant, and moving, I Am These Truths is the story of a woman living between two worlds, and learning to bridge them together to fight for what’s right.

This is an example of someone assenting their surroundings

I liked the autobiographical details about growing up in a dangerous, violent environment in the city

Amazing Book!

I loved it! amazing narration. Sunny certainly painted a picture. I felt like I was there through every scene of her life. She is an amazing Tory teller. I've always loved Sunny and now I love her more. I admire her values.

Such a great book!

This book delivered a riveting account of Sunny's life and the woman she became. Her journeys throughout her life is surreal but relatable. Sunny's perseverance to succeed and try again whilst failure looms is an attribute many of us desire. Her narration brought so much colour to an already beautiful story with unexpected
tidbits. Truly, I will have to go ahead and purchase the hard copy.
