Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Michael Jackson's life was one of extremes. He and his brothers displayed a talent for music at an early age and were thrust into the musical world by their father before the oldest Jackson brother had even completed high school. Despite their early entrance into show business, the Jackson brothers' strict parents ensured that they completed their education and made sure they did not fall into trouble. When Michael began his solo career, he was able to take the lessons learned from being a member of a group of singers and apply that to his need to perform perfectly for his audience. Although Michael's career was filled with success, his private life began to fall into ruin. Rumors and innuendo plagued his life throughout his solo career, and Michael's lack of a real childhood and his need for approval encouraged those who preyed on him. Filled with images from Michael's life, Pratt's unbiased look at Michael's life offers no judgment on his life or death. The text is part of the "Lives Cut Short" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
