Who doesn’t love having the inside scoop to something Scandalous? Growing up everyone I knew would come to me for the latest information on current events. Being the only child for years – newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, and books were my close confidantes. I would soak up as much information as I could.
This is the perfect book for young adults who need a crash course on some of the major events that happened in their parent’s lifetime. Everything wasn’t always about the Rihannas, Beyonces, and Lil Waynes of the world. Scandalous covers everything from The Miss America nude photos (Vanessa Williams) to the Bush/Gore election. Who can forget The Jim Bakker sex & money scandal?
This book is very informative. The layout is perfect for kids who tend to shy away from anything regarding history. I can’t rave enough about this book. I highly recommend this book.
