 Synopsis  Information
Over the 25 years that Frank Cascio knew Michael Jackson, he saw Michael as many things: friend, big brother, boss, and client. The two first met when Michael was at the peak of his career in 1985 and Frank’s father was working at the Waldorf Astoria where Michael stayed on occasion. Just five years old at the time, Frank instantly became a little brother to Michael, as the Cascios’ house became Michael’s home away from home. Sometimes Michael would stop by for dinner, other times he would stay there for weeks on end. He experienced a side of Michael that few people knew, witnessing firsthand the legend’s complex and often misunderstood Peter Pan reality. Through it all the Cascio family stood by Michael and, when Frank turned 18, Michael offered him a job as his assistant. In this book, Frank tells the full story of his life with Michael, offering an uplifting and definitive account of Michael’s life from someone who lived it alongside him.
