How Will I Know?

Whitney Houston coverWhitney Houston

Submitter: What an awful cover! Yes the processing with that translucent cover does not help. Plus the artwork itself is unflattering to Whitney. This book only covers up to 1996. There is no mention of her drug use, fall from grace, or sad death. Time to go!

Holly: The original cover is quite nice! I like the soft painting portrait of Whitney. Unfortunately, the submitted copy is all scratched up or something. Between the messed up cover, the layers of labels and tape on the spine, and the chewed-up corners, this book could be weeded on condition alone. Of all the titles in this “Black Americans of Achievement” series, this is one of the few I’d weed. It looks like a pretty nice series for school and public libraries otherwise.
