Praise

Weatherford’s intimate writing style will make readers feel like they’re accessing Marilyn’s private journals. The story is dedicated to anyone who has ever felt mistreated, disrespected, underestimated, or misunderstood, and will resonate with young adults…A highly enjoyable title recommended for reluctant readers and students intrigued by fame and stardom.
—School Library Journal

Though she has been dead for nearly 60, this biographical novel-in-verse attests to the continued fascination surrounding the Hollywood film star known as Marilyn Monroe…This psychologically nuanced biography portrays an intelligent, vulnerable woman who was profoundly troubled by a plethora of insecurities.
—School Library Connection

In fictionalized first-person free verse, Weatherford explores Marilyn’s career and her marriages but focuses, especially, on her difficult relationship with her mother and her unfulfilled longing for children of her own…this book, with its exquisite page design, meticulously incorporated research, and magnetic subject won’t lack in the slightest for readers.
