Reviews

Lorna Luft

Author of "Me and My Shadows: A Family Memoir: Living with the Legacy of Judy Garland"

There are so many incredible singers that this past century has produced and unfortunately so many young kids today have never even heard of them. I hope this wonderful new book "Shout, Sister, Shout!" will become a part of as many school libraries as possible across this country. It will hopefully not only educate but also inspire the next century's group of great singers and entertainers.
