Grade 9 Up-Martinac offers balanced coverage of the successful Canadian country/jazz/rock singer's life, including her small-town childhood in a supportive family environment; her relatively happy high school years; a brief, disappointing brush with college; her struggle for acceptance as a performer; and her eventual success. The emphasis is on lang's creative genius, down-to-earth personality, and her many facets as an individual. The clear message is: it's who you are, not your sexuality, that really counts. Although there is little new material here, collections that include Victoria Starr's more detailed k.d. lang (St. Martin's, 1994) can benefit from the addition of Martinac's highly readable, well-written book. It will appeal to lang's fans and meet the needs of reluctant readers. Numerous black-and-white photos add to the presentation, and the appendixes make the work particularly useful.
