Summary
"Crackles with tension and verve. . . . An unforgettable portrait of an artist whose faith in herself carried her when little else did." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

With lively prose, Roxane Orgill follows the gutsy Ella Fitzgerald from her schoolgirl days, orphaned and hungry, dancing and singing for loose change, to amateur night at Harlem's Apollo Theater, all the way to her number-one radio hit "A-Tisket, A-Tasket." Jazzy mixed-media art by illustrator Sean Qualls brings the singer's indomitable spirit to life.
Back matter includes resources for further information, and an index.
