Read in May, 2010

This verse novel was a different way to experience a biography. I would recommend this grade 8 and up due to the harshness of Billy Holiday's life. I found her life interesting, espacially given she grew up in the 1920's and 1930's in a very harsh environment. The book definately gives insight to Ms. Holiday's early years.
