Raves and Reviews

"Actor Michelle Williams delivers a tell-all memoir from Britney Spears. As a child star on “The Mickey Mouse Club” and a teenage pop star, Spears always felt that other people were making decisions for her and was constantly tempted to quit show business. Williams uses a direct approach to voice Spears’s feelings, and these passages carry even more weight in this audiobook than the dramatic events of her life. Some key moments are already public knowledge, but Williams’s narration gives added perspective on the trauma, stress, and pressure Spears endured for so many years. Rarer joyful moments are delivered with warmth, reminding listeners that Spears is more than the spectacle the media has made her out to be."

– AudioFile Magazine

"...narrator Williams’s gentle Southern drawl and slight vocal fry make this gripping memoir an unputdownable must-listen."

– Elizabeth Gabriel, Library Journal
