Reviews

"This collection of critical appreciations, compiled by a Times editor, assesses its superstar subject on the basis of her music, fashion, feminism, business skills, and more." --The New York Times Book Review

"[An] insightful essay anthology." --InTouch Magazine

"As if you needed another reason to love Beyoncé, this anthology of essays in appreciation of the superstar will give you at least 20 more. Chambers...weaves together voices of the famous, brilliant and thoughtful." --AMNewYork

"A pop culture must-have in libraries that serve older teens and new adults." --School Library Journal

"Reading this book feels...a lot like attending a sorority gathering when the sisters shout out their love, admiration, and respect for a polished performer who epitomizes the best of contemporary African American female culture and values." --New York Journal of Books

"Actors, academics and critics unpack the impact of a megastar in a collection of essays edited by Chambers. The group meditation on one of the world's greatest living icons features pieces by writer-producer Lena Waithe, comedian Kid Fury and scholar Brittney Cooper and examines Beyonce as a paragon of black female power, the model she sets for what a modern performer should be and more." --Time

"If Beyoncé is your queen (as she should be), your bookshelf needs this collection of essays dedicated to the legendary lady." --HelloGiggles

"Entertaining and illuminating, this essay collection will please readers no matter their Beyoncé fan status level." --Publishers Weekly

"With such a dynamic ensemble of opinions and reflections, the collection will be sweet reading not just for Beyoncé's superfans, but also for activists, feminists, and budding vocalists. An uplifting and resounding ovation." --Kirkus Reviews
