This is not exactly a biography; it doesn't even mention the speculation and ultimate disclosures about Lambert's sexuality. The clue to what this really is comes in the series title—Dream Big: American Idol Superstars—with the accent on American Idol. In fact, you might call this a biography of the show as much as of the singers who made it a hit. Beginning with an extensive timetable of the show's evolution, the book takes plenty of opportunities to look at the Idol phenomenon, with one chapter about the show's history, and interjections throughout about other Idol winners and traditions, such as the top three contestants returning to their hometowns. After a few pages about Lambert's early years, the book becomes a look back at his Idol journey (as Ryan Seacrest so likes to say): what Adam sang, what he wore, and the judges' reactions. Plenty of great color photographs and a boisterous design will certainly draw readers who already love Idol. Grades 5-8. --Ilene Cooper
