Praise

* “The poetry is rich and evocative. . . . A remarkable tribute well worthy of its subject.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Readers will find a generous assortment of recommended reading and listening at the end of this proud, clear-voiced testimonial.” —Booklist

* “[Weatherford] captures the woman’s jazzy, candid voice so adroitly that at times the poems seem like they could have been lifted wholesale from Holiday’s autobiography, Lady Sings the Blues. . . . This captivating title places readers solidly into Holiday’s world, and is suitable for independent reading as well as a variety of classroom uses.” —School Library Journal, starred review
