bastard child book cover

“Yeah, I’m Joh’Vonnie Jackson, bastard child of the infamously irascible Joseph Walter Jackson, half-sibling to Rebbie, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, LaToya, Marlon, Brandon, Randy, Michael and of course Janet. And these are the chronicles of the 11th Jackson, half-damned and half-blessed.” -excerpt from Bastard Child

Bastard Child is an emotional memoir that will for the first time bring Joh’Vonnie Jackson out of the darkness and into the spotlight. Joh’Vonnie bears it all in this heart-wrenching, tell-all memoir about living her life in the shadows of her world famous family. In this never before told story, Joh’Vonnie Jackson explains her side of the story for once and on her own terms.

“As the youngest of eleven, I knew just as well as my older half siblings what it means to be a Jackson. To get used to old bruises, you learn to be strong.” -excerpt from Bastard Child

And strong is what she’s become. Bastard Child sets the record straight about Joh’Vonnie Jackson’s life which has been anything but ordinary and hardly easy. You can dare to say that this is one of the most unique stories ever told and you’ve certainly never heard anything like this before.

Joh’Vonnie Jackson provides a detailed background about her beautiful mother Cheryl Terrell, Joseph Jackson’s long time, second “wife” as a means of explaining just how she came to grow up living near the Hayvenhurst compound and sharing her “Daddy”, Joseph Jackson, with the rest of her siblings.

In all, Bastard Child aims to accomplish a few things for the reader. It shares an unknown story of the infamous Jackson family. It allows Joh’Vonnie Jackson her space and her time living out of the shadows and finally the opportunity to be able to tell her story. And lastly, it works to help all of those out there in need of support and to inspire others with their unique struggles to come forward and live life truly and authentically.
