Teen singing sensation Britney Spears joins forces with her mother , Lynne, to bring a rags-to-riches, poor-girl-to-princess tale to life in A Mother's Gift.
Holly Faye Lovell lives with her mother, Wanda, in small town America where she spends her time singing in the church choir and dreaming of superstardom. When her car-mechanic boyfriend helps secure her an audition at the prestigious Haverty School of Music in Hattiesburg, she is offered a full scholarship.
But at Haverty, Holly's provincial ways make her an easy target for snobbish bullies. Of course, Holly determines to show them what she is really made of...
With a healthy dose of teen angst combined with the every-girl-must-have-a-dream-= theme, this nifty little book will certainly appeal to Britney fans who just can't get enough of their idol.
It certainly isn't brain surgery, and in places it is more than a little treacly, but it's not a bad effort. (Age 9 to 12) --Susan Harrison [via]
