Janis Joplin: Rise Up Singing

Amazon.com Rating:

Forty years after her death, Janis Joplin remains among the most compelling and influential figures in rock-and-roll history. Her story -- told here with depth and sensitivity by author Ann Angel -- is one of a girl who struggled against rules and limitations, yet worked diligently to improve as a singer. It's the story of an outrageous rebel who wanted to be loved, and of a wild woman who wrote long, loving letters to her mom. And finally, it's the story of one of the most iconic female musicians in American history, who died at twenty-seven.

Description

"From interviews with her friends and letters that Joplin wrote home, Angel pieces together her subject's short life, contrasting her conservative upbringing in a small Texas town with the wild 1960s, vividly portrayed both in descriptions and in excellent-quality, full-color and black-and-white photos on almost every page....Teens will be intrigued by the life of this cult figure." -- Peggy Fleming, School Library Journal
