Review: Between Each Line of Pain and Glory: My Life Story

User Review  - Johnnie B. - Goodreads

I enjoyed it a lot. It did seem a little uneven though. It started with immense detail on her youth and early career but seemed almost to gloss over her career once she and The Pips hit it big. Still, her story was entertaining and her humor was much appreciated. Read full review
