Publisher's Summary

In her poignant and touching memoir, Cookie Johnson, wife of NBA icon Earvin "Magic" Johnson, shares for the first time how her husband's HIV diagnosis twenty-five years ago sent her life and marriage in a frightening new direction.
On November 7, 1991, basketball legend Magic Johnson stunned the world with the news that he was HIV-positive. For the millions who tuned in as he shared his news, Magic's revelation became a seminal moment for the nation. Now twenty-five years later, Cookie Johnson shares her story and the emotional journey that started on that day - from life as a pregnant and joyous newlywed to one filled with the fear that her husband would die, she and her baby would, too, be infected with the virus, and their family would be shunned. Believing in Magic is far more than Cookie's account of surviving that trauma; it is the story of her marriage with Earvin and the nearly three decades of loving each other, losing their way, and eventually finding a path they never imagined they'd take.
