Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Emily Herbert's biography (John Blake, 2009) of the pop legend delivers an affectionate and respectful look into Michael Jackson's extraordinary life and career from his youth through his shocking death. Beginning with a look at his parents and the tremendous pressure his father placed on him to be perfect at a very young age, this portrait includes many quotes from interviews with Jackson that occurred throughout his life. The many hardships the performer suffered are discussed, including his court cases, his apparent obsession for plastic surgery, his addiction to pain killers, and his questionable fondness for children. His solo career and his hit albums and singles are covered. Andre Blake deftly narrates, keeping a steady pace throughout. An insightful biography packed full of information by a journalist and biographer who seems to have admired and respected Jackson.—Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN
