Boring! Nothing new about the guys. If you have any old NKOTB books just reread those or if u have forgotten basic facts, birthdays, siblings names u can find that online.
Felt the book was just trying to say black people lived back then, near them were friends, there was racism blah blah
Don't be like the author and hold on to any past Life is Tough Get Over it!

I love NKOTB, but was not impressed by this book. It was poorly written, and more about Maurice Starr than the group. Mildly interesting, but still not at all what I expected.

Not the best book about NKOTB. But still, it's NKOTB, and there were pictures, so it's not a complete waste.

This is probably a pretty interesting story, but so poorly written I could not enjoy.
