Everyone’s story begins somewhere. This book is written by Malcolm’s third daughter and shows the candor of a work written by someone who is close and cares.

This book centers on the story of his birth family, the foundation his parents provided and their struggles and triumphs. Captivating illustrations by AG Ford truly complement the text. The author’s notes on family history provide the personal background biographers may have missed. Ilyasah has also written a biography, Growing up X and a young adult book titled, X: a novel.
