Young fans of Demi Lovato will find this biographical book to be an informative resource about her rise to fame. From the “Superstars!” series, this book is packed with photographs, quotes from Lovato, and details of her life from childhood to her singing career. Demi Lovato got her big break as a child actress on Barney & Friends, (a children’s television show) going on to star in Disney productions, and sing on tour with the Jonas Brothers. The book chronicles her triumphs and struggles, not shying away from her troubles with bullying, eating disorders, and substance addiction. The author tackles these sensitive topics in a straightforward manner. Lovato went on to get treatment and raise awareness for bullying and mental health disorders. Her story could readily serve as an inspiration to young students struggling with similar problems. The author also emphasizes Lovato’s strong passion for singing, a talent which led her to record albums and land a role on the X Factor (a televised talent show) as a judge. The organization of the book makes it useful for research, with a table of contents, timeline, and index. Complex words and concepts are bolded throughout and defined in a glossary in the back, as well. The collection of further resources also adds more opportunity to dig in deeper and learn more about her. This book would be a great modern alternative for a biography project; it would also work well as a high interest read for reluctant or struggling readers. Reviewer: Lisa Czirr; Ages 8 to 12.
