Great story about J.K.'s life. Just like a window into her world as a child growing up into a famous adult. Although hard to catch on in the beginning, you will soon grow to like this book very much. Completely sourced, great book for research and great book for the occasional bio on someone's life. Shapiro did a really good job in describing the details of her life, it makes you feel as though you are in her life and at the same time in the real word. Worth 5 stars.
