Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
Lady Gaga can seem larger than life and un-relatable to most people. However, this book in "The Big Time" series aims to dispel those notions by presenting her as just a regular girl next door who made the big time. Once the introductions are made, we are given a glimpse into Lady Gaga's (nee Stefani Germanotta) childhood and early years in New York City. Her move to Los Angeles was the turning point for her music career, making her the amazing entertainer she is today. While indicated as being appropriate for first grade readers, it is difficult to imaging a six year old choosing this from the shelf, let alone securing permission from a parent, given the eccentricities of Lady Gaga, and some of the fashion choices included in this work. Those who will be attracted to this will be reluctant readers needing to do a quick biography assignment for English or music class, or those genuinely interested in this performer. The color photographs are the real focal point, the text is minimal, yet engaging. Following the text is a page of further sites and sources, and a helpful glossary and index. For a small book about a big star, this will fill many library shelves, whether in school or at home. Reviewer: Elizabeth Young
