About this title

Synopsis:

This autobiography recounts the story of the three girls--Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, and Diana Ross--who built the musical leagacy, the Supremes

From Library Journal:

Wilson and her three Detroit high school friends had big dreams when they formed the Primettes in 1959, but it wasn't until Motown's Berry Gordy reduced them to a trio, suggested a name change, and insisted Diana Ross sing lead that things started to happen. By summer 1965, eight months after their first #1 single, the Supremes were Motown's biggest act. Success meant furs, limos, lunches with royalty; also jealousies and friction, especially after the ambitious Ross became the star. Today there is no love lost between Wilson and "old friend" Diana, who is presented as a bitchy, conniving prima donna. Too tame and boringly written to engage non-fans, this may be in demand in public libraries thanks to a heavy publicity campaign. Thomas Jewell, Waltham P.L., Mass.
