4-0 out of 5 stars A very good account of events; tries to stick to facts
I came to this book as rather indifferent to Britney Spears, but with an interest in finding out about her story, having only been exposed to the most extreme gossip about her that got beyond the tabloids and made it into mainstream newspapers. I don't own any of her albums.

The book is most heavily focused on the earlier parts of her career and spends the most time there. The later years of her career are breezed through, but all of the highlights I remember hearing about on the radio from time to time were touched upon.

The book paints a sympathetic but seemingly-honest account of most events. It doesn't absolve her of blame but presents the environment and context in which certain events occurred, which was always missing from the sensationalist reports.

Some parts of the book were a bit thin, but I think this was done to mostly stick to the facts and what is known and to not indulge in too much speculation.

As another reviewer mentioned, this book turned me into a fan to some degree -- of the hard work, determination, and focus. It also made me somewhat sympathetic toward her situation and, while I can't understand her decisions, I can at least come to the conclusion that maybe I don't know enough about the psychology of the situation to empathize.

The book also provides yet another account of how fame and success can attract the wrong people to your vicinity, and how a voracious media can strip you of your privacy and deliberately seek to represent you as they want to and not in accordance with the truth of things.

Britney Spears
Little Girl Lost
By Christopher Heard

It's very easy in life to have a preconceived notion about another human being; especially the able bodies who are constantly splashed across every tabloid magazine that's lining the check-out aisles.We either: A) Purchase the magazine eager to read the (usually false) information, and declare in as loud a voice as possible that we only buy it for the crossword puzzle; or, B) We put our noses in the air, "tsk-tsk" about the ridiculousness of these so-called "stars'" lives, and declare very loudly that we pray to God our child doesn't become an idiot like them.I am...just as human as the next person in line.Even though we all preach that we must keep an open mind, the constant bombardment of reality television, Entertainment Tonight happenings, and the myriad of magazines that offer this low-brow gossip takes us in until we choke on the so-called news.

I'm also a huge fan of this author.I've read Mr. Heard's other biographies and he has taught me a great deal about keeping an open mind and how the "star machine" has rolled over some of the kindest people in America, who are just looking for a little bit of help.Unfortunately, they are also in charge of keeping the "gravy chain" running along for all the people in their lives who sponge off their fame.Britney is no different, except for the very real fact that this was a little girl who simply wanted to achieve a dream - not unlike all of our own daughters, including mine.

The beginning is simply a story about a young family who work hard in their small town of McComb, Louisiana.Mom Spears is a stunning woman, who most people in town thought could make it in the movies because she was just that good-looking.When she had her daughter, she was absolutely excited that the Lord had blessed her with someone she could "dress up like a doll."Dad, too, worked a great deal - trying to support his family.Both parents struggled as they lived in a house that sat between the Baptist Church on one side and a local bar on the other.(I know, I know, but this is not a bad country song - this is real life.)

We follow Britney as she first becomes enchanted with singing.This young girl - again, like all the rest - sets up her stuffed animals in her room and sings to them.She also found herself an extremely good gymnast.She even teamed up for a time with Bela Karolyi, who brought Mary Lou Retton and Nadia Comaneci into the ultimate Olympic limelight.But Britney was like many children, when the sport became un-fun, it became painful, and she abandoned it immediately.The writer then brings us through the years of the New Mickey Mouse Club; the trials and tribulations of landing a NYC agent who gets her the understudy role in a Broadway play, and more.

We then move on to Justin Timberlake and his N'Sync pals, even finding out that Britney was once offered a part in a girl band at the time called Innosense, which she turned down.(I agree with her; if you're not the "star of the show" why bother, frankly.)When Baby One More Time hit MTV - Britney hit the world, and became just as recognized as her lifetime hero, Madonna.Her relationship with Timberlake was extremely elegant - yes, elegant - for kids that age.They were kind to each other in and out of the press, for the most part, and their appearances were always sweet and charming.The thing is...I actually think they were real, too.This first love - even though in the spotlight - wasn't tainted by "fake" feelings - it was really and truly a first love.

From Britney's horrific times of depression; quickie Las Vegas marriage; her foray into Kabbalah; best selling perfume to a not-so-great-ticket-selling movie, the author gives us all facets of this young girl who was forced to grow up way too fast.The weight that her mother laid on her shoulders was intolerable, as far as I'm concerned; and it doesn't surprise me that her post-partum depression led to passing out and shaving her head.If I were her, I would've went after MOM with the razor and taken her locks off.Perhaps Federline was a mistake, but to Britney, he wasn't - he was the one who gave her the two most beautiful sons in the world; and, for that alone, she can be proud.

In the end - the money belongs to her.She made it; she worked her behind off for it; and, it's disgusting when the people riding her coattails want to say THEY deserve a pierce of the pie.They don't.I hope Britney finds the redemption she's looking for, but mostly, I want her to be a good Mom who looks at her boys and supports their dreams with love, honor, wisdom, and kindness - something Britney lacked in her own life, she can make up for by making sure her own children are never...lost.

Great work Mr. Heard!You made me a Spears fan.Not the singing, perhaps, but definitely an admirer of her determination and sheer will.

Until Next Time,
Amy Lignor, [...] Reviewer

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding and Truthful and Honest Account of the inner struggles faced by this super star !

Title: Britney Spears: Little Girl Lost
Author: Christopher Heard
Publisher: Transit Publishing

The media can be cruel when reporting about a singer, movie star or even an athlete. Movie critics, book reviewers and photographers tend to invade the lives of the actors, authors and famous figures when they appear in public, or review their movies or books. Britney Spears has been under the microscope since the day she was born. Primed to become a singer and a star, encouraged by her mother, Lynne, Britney Spears life was never really private. There was always someone there to photograph her, rate her performance, compete against her or encourage her to continue being the perfectionist she has always was and still is. This brings me to my review of Britney Spears: Little Girl Lost by Christopher Heard. What a perfect title. To anyone that really has a heart and understands that people deserve second chances and should not be judged on past mistakes, the title fits, as I feel she never had a chance to really be a little girl and do the things little kids did.

From the minute she could get up and dance or sing, she performed in public and entered every competition and contest that her mother would bring her to. She won most everyone that she entered and competed in before the age of 8. Britney loved gymnastics too and was given every form of equipment to practice on in her home. Piano lessons, singing lessons and dancing lessons were her life early on, causing her to miss school and socializing with other children her own age.

Britney Spears's mother had goals that she set for her and expected her to reach them. With a father that was finding it hard to find work, the family began depending on her to support them. Becoming part of the Mickey Mouse Club, she became friends with many stars and her rise to stardom she hoped would not be far away. With the shows short-lived life and cancellation, she returned home to Kentwood to resume her life as a normal teenager. But, would her mother allow her to and what would her next career move be? Even forming a relationship with a friend of her brother, she dove into it with the same vigor as two adults starting a relationship. The relationship became too intense and when Reg went off to college and met other girls, Britney retaliated by dating other boys and making sure that he knew it

Britney did not handle rejection or disappointment very well. When she did not get a part or come on top she started analyzing what she did wrong and consider what her failings were instead of working on the many positive attributes that she had. Throughout the this biography I have not heard her parents use terms of love or endearment to her or ever say they were proud of her for all that she accomplished and might in the future.

Author Christopher Heard helps the reader to better understand the torment, turbulent relationships, the highs and lows of the career of a young woman who many counted on to make them rich and bring in the gold. Her relationship with Justin Timberlake, her mother's goals for her and constant push to rise to the top, and the endless tours she went on, often left her drained and feeling alone. Commercials, movies, awards, endorsements, videos and numerous albums and yet she never really found Britney, the real person. A heart of gold and blaming herself for her parent's debts, she paid them back and then some but not just with money but also by driving herself and pushing herself to meet what she thought she wanted and others expected of her. She became less of a human being and more of a marketable product.

Her life is like looking into a distorted mirror with all of the images out of place. Her relationship and marriage to Kevin Federline, her poor public image due to allegedly being accused of alcohol and drug abuse, her stint in rehab and more drove the public, the media and her support group to withdraw from her. Temper tantrums in public, hospitalizations, losing custody of her children and no one really understood why. Even her parents and doctors did stop and think about why her total personality was so erratic. As the author so aptly states," too many in Britney's inner and outer circles were content to overlook her suffering and obvious cries for help." This book is a must read for anyone that wants to learn more about what happens when stardom comes too fast, people take advantage of a young girl who just wanted to become a star.
Britney needs to fix that mirror and create a clearer picture. You don't have to please the world, you need to be who you are and that is just fine and deserve a big hug and congrats for your comeback. ... Read more

Product Description
American singing sensation Britney Spears and her mom talk about life, love, fame, and following your dreams.

Britney Spears makes success look simple. As Brit will tell you, though, success is hard work--you need talent, belief in yourself, and someone else who believes in you. For Britney, that person has always been her mother, Lynne Spears, who is not just Britney's mama but also her best friend.

In Britney Spears' Heart to Heart, Britney and Lynne share the inspiring story of how one little girl from Kentwood, Louisiana, turned into a music phenomenon. From the days of singing at talent shows and family gatherings to recording ". . . Baby One More Time" and performing with NSYNC, Britney and Lynne share intimate details about Britney's rise to stardom. But this book is much more than just the story of Britney's life. In their own words, Lynne and Britney talk openly about the challenges facing all mothers and daughters. How do you encourage your child? How do you talk to your mom? How do you overcome obstacles? How do you put together your own "dream team" that will always be there for you? How do you deal with success--and failure? How do you talk about dating and relationships, dress codes, self-esteem, and body image?

Featuring never-before-seen photos and dozens of behind-the-scenes stories about life at home, in the studio, and on the road, Britney Spears' Heart to Heart is not only a must-have for Britney fans, it's also an honest look at what it's like for girls to grow up in today's world. Here's straight talk from the heart, from a mother and daughter who know that love, faith, and family always come first.

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting...
Knowing what I know now, I feel bad for her. You could tell by reading it that she was getting tired of it. It is a good book and an inside look to how her "life" was in the beginning. Just wish she would have backed out OR at least listened to what she had wrote about.

1-0 out of 5 stars I just wish thatshe could sing...
The book is boring, and by buying it you are feeding the all time Hollywood mashine....and make more profit for Britney( does she need more money, than what she has? and still not happy?my suggestion she she should try an ordinary 8am-5pm job. Don`t waste your money. It is time for her to grow up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Britney is Strong Woman
I read this book to know Britney Spear life and I'm not dissapont. She tells a lot of her stories and she work very hard to be famous star in world. Her mother also wrote the book together and she is good model for Britney Spear. These womens have feet on ground and strong value. Iam very happy that Britney will now have her baby and be good mother like Lynn. Well done Britney!

2-0 out of 5 stars to me it was sickening.

Well where do I start, Im more into science-fiction books then this kind of stuff but my friend was raving about it so i made my dad buy it on amazon for me (quick shipping as always) When the box got to my house i was a little aprehensive to open it (i mean this literally especially something from britney and her mom)

Well it started off about her perfect life, then how her mom was sooooo anoying and an embarressment. and bla bla bla bla and everyone seemed to have such wierd names god i cant even remember them but i know one started with MS or i think it did.

When i finished this book i wondered how britney got along with her mom because they seem to have it all wrong with the mother daughter bond andi wondered if they just made this book because they were bored (also found some errors on the way)

my conclussion is that this is the type of book you would burn with gasoline then put holy water on.

go through amazon (because of the large selection of books) and actuallybuy your money's worth.

3-0 out of 5 stars A road full of speed bumps..
..is what I compare this book to.

I finished this book in about 2 hours after getting it at the library. I had seen the TV movie "Brave New Girl", that is based on this book and had really liked it. Since I thought the movie was so good, I had high expectations for this book, and I was really let down.

(May Contain Spoilers)

Fourteen year old Holly Faye Lovell lives in Biscay Mississippi with her single mother Wanda Jo. Holly and Wanda have a very strong mother/daughter bond that is strengthen with Friday night viewings of the "Haverty Talent Hour", a talent show live from the prestigious Haverty School of Music. Holly's dream was to attend this school but she was afraid that the fancy school would not accept small town, low income students like her. Her dream suddenly becomes a reality when her boyfriend, Tyler Norwood, records her singing a solo at church. Tyler sends it in and in a few weeks, Haverty calls and requests an audition! After some waiting, Holly is accepted. She gets to Haverty and meets Lydia (or "Ditz" as she wishes to be called). "Ditz" opens up Holly to a whole new world that makes Holly realize how very thankful she is for herway of life. When Holly and "Ditz" visit Biscay for spring break, Wanda finally gets the courage to tell Holly a life changing secret. This secret leaves Holly upset and sorry for feeling resentment of her mother and her small town life and really shows her that she is A Mother's Gift.

This book was a bit boring at times and I was disappointed that it was very different from the TV movie. This book is a good read if you're a Britney Spears fan or you like light young adult novels. I would choose the movie over this book. The last two chapters really saved the book from dying a very slow and painful death. Skip the book, see the movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book
I think this book was amazing.I have always liked Britney Spears, so I picked up this book, not sure that I would like it.It is now one of my favorite books, among Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia.This book has a great story to it.I love the ending.I have not always been a great reader, but this book encouraged me to read more and more books.now I don't want to stop!

5-0 out of 5 stars I've got to tell you..
most people wouldn't give this book a chance simply because of the authors..

Then again, I READ it simply because of the authors, to see how badly they could do...

I was wrong and quite surprised.
This was a bit of a moving story and I really enjoyed it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good
I wouldn't say that this book is boring or fabulous, it's just fine. Although i'm a huge fan of Britney, and i used to say that everything about her is fabulous, but this book is not really interesting and it's a pretty short story, you can finish it in 2-3 days. You many consider buy STAGES instead of this, STAGES is 10 times better than A MOTHER'S GIFT!! ... Read more

I say if you like the movie and are looking for more get the DVD dont get this... its not worth it... unless you want to see pics of britney that repeat whats in the movie or find out what she learned about the camera on her day shoot... end result? keep your money

5-0 out of 5 stars it's my favorite britney book in the whole yorld
I loved this book.It's my favorite in my collection at home.I especially liked the pictures and the writing.Besides that, it also had good parts about britney and her life.I really feel closer to her after teading this.I wish that they included a section where she talked more about her music.I bought the britney spears doll at the mall near my house.She is definitely the best in the world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Book
Britney kept a diary during the fliming ofher #2 hit movie, "Crossroads." The flimed grossed over 75 million dollars worldwide and this book has basically some behind the scenes info. Good buy for Britney fans.

1-0 out of 5 stars QUIT IT!!!
What is the publishing world coming to? What happened to good books and authors, such as Flannery O' Connor, V.C. Andrews, and William Faulkner? Sure, they're all dead and all, but what happened to all the good writers? Is it all coming to an end? How could trash by this gal be considered literature? Britney writes like a little kid and just because she's a big "star" doesn't mean she deserves to be published more than the people who work their butts off writing real literature. Gawd, what a bookshelf hog. And book deal hog, at that. She's taking over everything; next thing you know, she's going to be running for prez. Hopefully that won't happen... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you liked the movie....
If you liked Crossroads the movie, you will love the book!The book is almost identical to the movie, but it goes deeper into the characters and story line which is nice.I found this book very interesting and could not put it down!For a fan of the movie i loved this book because it really develops the characters and plot well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Crossroads
Crossroads is a great book and I would recommend this book to others. The author of the book is Jenny Markas. In the book Lucy, Mimi, Kit, and Ben went on a road trip to Los Angeles for a dance competition. I will read this book one hundred more times. That is how much I liked the book. I liked it because it was full of adventure.
I think the book started in an excited way because the first sentence of the first chapter besides the prologue said "I love to sing." I thought it would be exciting because I love to sing too. I don't think it contains action or suspense besides the part when they argue. I think the main character shows strength because before she leaves she doesn't tell her dad where she was going or when she will be back. I do think the book ends in a surprising way because Lucy's dad lets her stay and do the dance competition.
I think the author is trying to say that you shouldn't take off without telling anyone. I knew that when Lucy's dad woke up in the morning and found out that she wasn't there and he got worried that something happened to her. So do you think you want to read it now? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Before It All Began...
Before K-Fed, before her striptease at the MTV Video Music Awards, there was the sweet Britney with the number 1 hit song "Baby One More Time". This little biography tells the story of Mrs. Spears up to the release of her first album "...Baby One More Time". Don't expect to see photos of her nude in Rolling Stone magazine, expect a sweet pic of her drinking an iced coffee and smiling at the camera. I bought this book when it was first released in 1999 and looking back at on it today, it's quite a nostalgic piece. The book is like all the other unauthorized bios on teen stars, and I'm sure it will be a nice little collector's item for Brit fanatics.

5-0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE!
This book is a must-have.It is really good for a unauthorized book alot of those books are not really good but this one is great!

5-0 out of 5 stars steph@britney.com
I like this book because it has the grading scale of each song. It has the exercises and stuff that you could look like Britney, it has the favorites of Britney's MMC and today. It has a lot of website of Britney that you can go on. I also like the Jackie Robb book about Christina Aguilera. If you are a huge-big Britney Spears fan. This book is a must.

Product Description
If it seemed like Britney Spears appeared on the music scene and instantly became a smashing success, it was just an illusion. In reality, Britney has been working for years to create the kind of stardom she has just begun to receive. A down-home country girl, Britney has talent, confidence, and strong values. As a child actress, she appeared on Star Search, starred in the Disney Channel’s New Mickey Mouse Club (with Justin Timberlake and J. C. Chasez of ’N Sync), and made countless commercials. But at age 15, Britney was itching to do the singing/dancing solo routine. With the chart-topping success of her debut album/single . . . Baby One More Time, Britney began capitalizing on her brush with fame. After all this, she wants to be a role model for her fans. All across the world Britney Spears is a dedicated performer who is responsible for her own success. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money...
My daughter loves to read & loves Britney Spears but this book was a big let down! It's a very small book with minimal writing on each page. I buy lots of books from Amazon.com but this is one I would definately not buy again! The author went skimpy on the workmanship to write this book. I would pass this one up, there are much better Britney books for sale.

3-0 out of 5 stars More Like Britney Spears Rumors
This book is mostly made of rumors or news selections about Britney Spears. The book is in black and white and includes no pictures which was dissapointing. The book is good though, some of the facts/rumors I haven't ever heard about. The book it self is really small. It can fit in your pocket. The book was overall okay but it wasn't the best.

3-0 out of 5 stars This book was ok
This was ok, it had some good pictures but I knew a lot of the information already. What got it three stars was the pics. Some of them were quite good ones that I hadn't seen before. Overall this book was boring except for the pics.

3-0 out of 5 stars This is OK
This is not a very good book on Britney Spears. The information is "I already knew that" kind of stuff. Your best bet on Britney Spears books is her new book Heart to Heart that Britney co-wrote with her mother, Lynne.

2-0 out of 5 stars Small but good!
I am a fan of Britney Spears. I am always looking for a new book on her. Ifound this book and thought it would be good.

Product Description
Smart, spunky, and pretty, Britney Spears is a teenage singing sensation People called "a mix of Debbie Gibson's wholesomeness and Alanis Morissette's grit." Her Baby One More Time album hit #1 on the Billboard chart right out of the starting gate. I may seem like success came overnight for this brown-eyed beauty, but she's been working at it since childhood: before joining The Mickey Mouse Club at 11, Britney was acting in commercials and in an Off-Broadway show. And at 15, the singing bug bit-and there was no stopping Britney.

But behind the fame, Britney's just an ordinary teen-she loves shopping, going to the beach, eating pizza, and talking about boys. She's close to her family and is no rush to grow up. Find out all about Britney-from her career plans to her personal life, how she gets her cool look, who spends her time with, what it was like on the road opening for 'N Sync and much, much more.

With eight pages of awesome photos!

This is probably the oddest thing - but I am a grown man, and a newlywed.Despite that, I am terribly fond of Britney.I love everything she does.Everything she says.Just everything about her.This book captures everything there is to love about my Britney.Just reading this book makes me want to hug her.One of the things I did is I bought two copies.One just to read and to have, the other so I could make a collage for my office.I may even tell my wife how much I like this book and get one to make a collage at home.This is my favorite book of all time.If I could give it 6 stars I would.

3-0 out of 5 stars it should have been better.
If you are a die-hard britney fan you will be dissapointed.It is only 32 pgs. long and if you think you have seen all the photos of her there are about 3 child hood pictures that i have not seen and maybe you hav'ent seen ether.The dumb thing about this book [and all the books in the seris] you will come around big bold words and if you flip to the back there is a glossary! People could just look in the dictionary if they didn't know words like audience or manager instead of a britney spears bio!
The good books in this series:leonardo de caprio.
