Editorial Reviews

Popular music is a lucrative business and one that publishers certainly want to take advantage of, especially to attract those much-sought-after teen dollars. Knowing this trend, it is no shock that this shoddily put-together biography on pop sensation Destiny's Child is, as the cover proclaims, a "national best-seller." One might think that a group with such an interesting history—the four who originally made up the group have known each other since their youth and they lost two of those original members and one of the replacements—would give the author plenty to delve into, but unfortunately she does little to give any real insight into this complicated yet talented group of young women. What the author does here is to gush on and on about the greatness of the women, making each singer seem like a cardboard cutout rather than a real person who is not perfect. Furthermore, the language Kelly uses seems inappropriate for the likely audience. For example, she writes that the women in the group "sashay" across the stage. Teens are likely to need a dictionary to decipher the dated lingo. Unfortunately, there are not many biographies available on this very popular trio so until a better-written alternative comes along, junior high and public libraries will want to add this title to their biography collections.

    Favorite Xmas Present

    My mom doesn't think I read enough so she bought me a bunch of books for Xmas. My favorite was "Destiny's Child: The Complete Story." I only became a DC fan after their CD Survivor came out. After reading the book, I was curious about the original members so I bought TWOTW. Now I am a fan of the old and the new DC. The book was sad but good at the same time it was very informative and good.
