From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-- An inspirational biography of a remarkable individual. Homeless, tempted to commit armed robbery, and temporarily employed to deliver marijuana, Parks's early struggles closely resemble those of many contemporary teenagers. Unable to achieve his early ambition--a high school diploma--he nevertheless achieved unqualified success as a composer, author, photographer , and film director. The book is informative, readable, and illustrated with black-and-white photographs both by and of Parks. --Nancy E. Curran, Decatur Public Schools, IL
