Life in the spotlight was never Cookie Johnson's wish. A strong-willed girl with dreams of an education and a career in fashion, she met rising star Earvin "Magic" Johnson on campus at Michigan State. They fell in love there and--with a relationship that would be tested and strengthened over time--started their forever. But then just weeks after they married, Earvin stunned his newly pregnant wife and the world with the news that he was HIV-positive. For Cookie, time on earth would be sharply divided into two halves: life before the November 7, 1991, announcement and life after that horrible day. She would have to draw on strength, mettle, and faith to see her family through the most tumultuous moments of her life. Now, for the first time, Cookie shares a full account of her life with Earvin--their courtship and delayed trips down the aisle, the truth about being a Basketball Wife, growing their family, starting her own successful business, and what it took to stand by her husband as he rallied to help a nation see past his sickness and down to the humanity of those affected by the AIDS virus.
