Ultimate Superstars: Ariana Grande

Publisher: Studio Press Books

Review

This accessible biography of actor and singer Ariana Grande charts her early life and rise to stardom. It begins by describing her performance at One Love: Manchester, a charity concert she organised in 2017. The event was to raise money for the victims of a terrorist attack two weeks earlier at her show in Manchester, where 22 people died and hundreds were injured.

The reader is taken on a journey through Ariana’s life. She was born in Florida, USA in 1993 and had a happy childhood, showing early signs of wanting to be a performer. With the love and support of family and friends, she embarked on an early career in musical theatre, then moved into television before realising her dream of becoming a singer. Readers will learn about her close relationship with brother Frankie as well as her strong connection with fans all over the world.

Written in a chatty style, this is an interesting read for fans of Ariana Grande and will help to inspire young people to follow their own dreams. One of a series of biographies about young successful female performers, other titles include Beyoncé and Taylor Swift.
