School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-9-These titles honoring rock-and-roll icons are not Hall of Fame material. Uninspiringly written, they give little insight into the lives and artistry of these undeniably talented performers. Springsteen is little more than a career rsum. The orange-framed photographs are merely decoration and look like part of an unappealing scrapbook. The Supremes certainly had a volatile career, and Rivera touches on some of Diana Ross's questionable behavior, but fails to bring this group to life. The Beatles, in particular, reads like a rewrite of any number of other books about the band for this audience. No sources are provided for the quotations in any of the titles, although a list of works cited is included in the brief end matter. Readers would be better off going to any of the other books or articles about these artists.-Tim Wadham, Maricopa County Library District, Phoenix, AZ (c) Copyright 2010.
