I read 'My Sister Tommie' in only three days. It was one of the coolest biographies that I've ever read. The book doesn't show Tammi Terrell as a good or bad person, but as she really was. And from what I can tell, she really enjoyed life. Ludie Montgomery and Vickie Wright did a superb job telling the story of this beautiful flower that withered away too soon. I wish a lot of other people, young and old alike, could read this book and learn more about the life of Motown's Sweetheart.

My Sister Tommie is a MUST have for all the fans of soul music and music in general and it puts you right in the haart of the era as it happened and celebrates her life, albeit much too short and dispels any unfounded rumors and sheds a glowing light on one of musics unsung heroines. Tammi is once again in our presence with this wonderful read. Kudos to the authors Ludie Montgomery and Vickie Wright for a job well done!!

It was interesting and heartwarming. This book allowed you to get to know tammi from childhood up to her early twenties. Great read for any Tammi Terrell fan. The only negative thing i would say is that this biography was a bit hard to follow. Ludi jumped around in the plot, and had a ton of comments from old motown coworkers, friends, and family; So you have to stay on your toes while reading in order to follow who is talking. Overall i feel more connected to Tammi Terrell as a fan and a human being because of this biography. Thank you Ludi.=]

I love Tammi Terrell and was really looking forward to this, but it was so hard to follow, it's as if Tammi's sister just spoke into a tape recorder as the memories occurred to her. There's a lot of jumping around and contradictions that an editor should have caught. It's all from the sister's perspective too, other people should have been interviewed for a more complete picture, especially of Tammi's Detroit years.

I think this book gives a great sense of who Tammi was, the time line that the authors had to follow really shows you that she lived fast and to the fullest - a very bright life, dimmed too soon...The authors not only had to tackle her short life span of 24 years, but also had to address the many issues that came up since her death over 35 years ago - a task in itself. When the sister unfolded and dealt with her own life, Tammi's life became more clear to me as a reader, I was 9 when Tammi died but I do remember loving the music and I really feel as if I was in that time frame again. I have a feel for other people from Tammi's life now too - this is honest and respectful and a very moving story. It covers more than a musical career, it decifers the person who made an impact on some of the greatest entertainers we have known and seen. I am so glad Tammi's sister allowed this to happen.

I read this book over the weekend and found it to be a very good read. However, I found some slight contradictions. Ludie Montgomery previously denied rumors of Tammi's drinking, but in her book she stated that her sister did indeed start to drink. I loved her depiction of the deep love and loyalty that Marvin Gaye had for the late Ms. Terrell. All in all, very good reading.
