really liked it
Recommended for: fans of Billie Holiday, music lovers, teens

The poems were so lovely and it was great to learn more about billie Holiday and imagine how she must have felt at certain times in her life. carole Weatherford is a gifted poet and she does a fantastic job of presenting Billie Holiday to a group of readers who don't usually listen to her (I had only heard 2 of her songs before reading this book).I have a new appreciation for Lady Day.

Another review will be posted at my blog later in the week :)
