Synopsis

Ellen Degeneres Entertainer by Sherry Beck Paprocki

Following her public announcement that she was gay, Ellen DeGeneres was at a loss for work in the late 1990s. She - and the character she played - had come out during the fourth season of her moderately successful television sitcom, and her show was canceled shortly thereafter. She thought her career as a comedian might be over. Through perseverance and talent, DeGeneres built a new career for herself as the host of an Academy Award-winning syndicated daytime television show. Ellen DeGeneres tells her story, from her childhood in Louisiana and Texas to her rise as one of the most recognizable faces on television.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
