CM . . . . Volume XVIII Number 19 . . . . January 20, 2012
A Canadian Superstar! Yeah. Nice to see they have added a bit more Canadian content to this series. Like the other books in the “Superstars!” series, Justin Bieber is about someone who has made it big in the entertainment business while still very young. The timelines at the back of the book identify the first steps that Bieber took to start on his career path. Like the other superstars in the series, Bieber wasn’t born famous, but, at a young age, about the same age as the book’s intended readers, Bieber was busking on the steps of the Avon Theatre in Stratford, ON. His mother posted some videos of him singing in a talent contest (where he came second) on YouTube, and the rest is the stuff of dreams to young wannbe superstars.
Following the format of the earlier books in the series, Justin Bieber takes readers through Bieber’s early years and addresses how he got started in show business. The rest of the book goes through the accomplishments of the rising star on his way to becoming a superstar. The book ends with a look ahead to what may be in Bieber’s near future. The final section is a timeline starting at birth and listing highlights and accomplishments up to August, 2011.
