Editorial Reviews

VOYA - MaryAnn Harlan
The "Celebrities with a Heart" series attempts to introduce young teen readers to celebrities in a manner that goes beyond tabloid headlines and professional successes, attempting to emphasize personal charity. In the two titles addressed by this review, the intent was achieved with varying success. Angelina Jolie is a tabloid favorite, a highly visible actress both in her personal and professional life. Schuman addresses some of the personal controversy of her life but without detail, in a manner appropriate for this age group. Beyond what is known of her in this sense, Jolie is a humanitarian activist who brings her name, passion, and money to support global causes. While the Jolie title outlines her career and some of her personal life, there is a great deal of time spent on her charity. The Tim McGraw title is less successful in the focus on charity. Much of the book addresses his biography. It covers Tim's relationship with his father, Tug, as well as how he met and married Faith Hill. While less of the focus is on charity, the book does introduce McGraw's charitable contributions, such as Swampstock (a charitable softball game), and benefit concerts he organized and participated in. Both titles are simplified biographies of their subject but provide extra interest in terms of the charitable contributions of two superstars. Reviewer: MaryAnn Harlan
