The following content was provided by the publisher.
FANTASIA tells of her astonishing rise from hopeless high school dropout to "American Idol" superstar in the inspirational "New York Times" bestseller "Life Is Not a Fairy Tale"
In one moment, with one tearful performance of "Summertime," the nineteen-year-old Fantasia captured the hearts -- and the votes -- of millions of "American Idol" fans. Her powerful voice and independent style made her an overnight national sensation. But life wasn't always sensational for Fantasia.
At the age of seventeen, despite the promise of her extraordinary voice, Fantasia was in danger of becoming just another sad statistic: an uneducated, unmarried teenage mother living in the projects. But Fantasia had been raised by two strong, influential women: Both her grandmother and mother are preachers, and she was raised with an unshakable faith. In "Life Is Not a Fairy Tale, " Fantasia speaks -- with a spirit as strong as her voice -- about what it takes to believe in the power of one's self. She turns all that she's learned into uplifting life lessons, including:
- Recognize your gift
- You made your bed, now lie in it
- Give props where props are due
- Like mother, like daughter
- It ain't about the bling
Fantasia keeps it real with her sassy, self-confident style and down-to-earth advice, making readers laugh and cry with her. "Life Is Not a Fairy Tale" is more than just a celebrity success story. It's a book of revelations that will inspire all readers to reach for their greatest potential.
