Library Journal Review

Shania Twain is a mega-country music star whose career spiraled to the top in only four years after she signed with Mercury Records in 1991. Not all was smooth sailing for Twain, who grew up in rural Canada. Her parents were killed in a car crash when she was 21, and she was left with three younger siblings. There were rough waters to cross in the Nashville music industry, and some of her first endeavors, such as videos, were not particularly successful. But by 1995 Twain was one of the hottest stars on the country music circuit. McCall, an author whose work has appeared in Billboard, Journal of Country Music, and other publications, capitalizes on Twain's current momentum in this succinct portrait, more like a lengthy magazine article than a biography. Fans will pull McCall's work off the shelves quickly. Recommended for large public library collections.ÄKathleen Sparkman, Baylor Univ., Waco, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
