I very much enjoyed reading this book. I love the way it is written, very musical and jazzy just like the Lady. It is definitely NOT a book for kids, it is filled w. curses and inappropriateness aplenty so, IMHO I wouldn't even let my older teen read it without A LOT of discussion. On the other hand, it could be a way to open a lot of discussions if you think your older child could handle it.
Billie had a rough life from beginning to end and she doesn't sugarcoat any of it and she takes responsibility for the mistakes she made. If you are a Billie Holiday fan or a jazz fan in general I highly recommend this book.
