Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Sulock
Latina celebrity actress America Ferrera is featured in five short chapters. "America the Beautiful," the first Chapter, describes who she is and what distinguishes her from the average celebrity actress. Chapter Two, "Rising Star," recounts Ferrera's journey from dreaming about being an actress to landing her first roles. The book continues by discussing her most celebrated role in Chapter Three, "Becoming �Ugly Betty," along with her packed work schedule and charity work in Chapter Four, "A Busy Life." The book concludes with "Staying Down to Earth" by showcasing her intelligence and positive nature. Each chapter includes colorful photographs and short sidebars. A brief resume of her awards and recognition, a time line of her life, a list of additional resources for research, and a glossary conclude the book. It is an easy read for young researchers and reluctant readers alike, as well as a positive choice for aspiring actors and actresses to show the challenges of the industry. Part of the "Celebrity Biography" series. Reviewer: Elizabeth Sulock
