"I mean, it really is like Cinderella." In a mixture of awe and wonder, that's the way Mariah Carey describes her career. It really does seem as if she's the heroine of a fairy tale. In a matter of a few quick years she's gone from a poor girl raised alone by her divorced mother on Long Island, New York, to one of the world's leading pop divas. Her story is both inspiring and inspirational. Her four albums have sold a total of over sixteen million copies in this country alone. Her first five singles all reached Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a feat never managed before by anyone-not event the Beatles or Elvis Presley. Among the many awards she's received are two Grammys. And, as if all that weren't quite enough, she married the man who discovered her, Tommy Mottola, the head of the company for which she records.

It's refreshing to come across the unexpected. When it comes to rock star bios, one always fears another tale of depravity, excess, and mania. A nice story about a nice person who happens to have a superabundance of talent defies that expectation, and such a defiant story is pop diva Carey's, according to Nickson. In an era when the need for regular MTV play dictates that stars look as good as they sound, Carey is blessed with both looks and an incredible vocal range--a combination that often enough brings stardom, and that is essentially what the book is about. Carey's a star, and if you're interested in how she came to be but don't want the distractions of a lot of deep, boring stuff, Nickson's nice, inoffensive book is for you. Mike TribbyReview:
"A rags-to-riches classic." --New York Newsday
