If Only by Geri Halliwell: On The Cover

So I was browsing through a local bookstore that also has a maaaaassssive collection of old books in the form of old used books...so you can get anything from a second-hand book to a five-hand or more book, but always in perfect condition.....

The book I absolutely had to pick up was If Only by Geri Halliwell. I have always been a fan of the Spice Girls and absolutely loved their songs when I was growing up...so I had to pick it up...Plus the fact that I love bios, especially of the entertainment industry kinds, and the cover jacket was just too tempting.....Have a look....The best part about this deal for me? While this is available online for INR 642 in paperback, I picked it for only INR 25!!!! I can't even call this a steal!!!!

So now, without any further delay, here's the cover jacket...

 'Compulsory reading for every wannabe.' Mail on Sunday

 Like many starstruck girls, Geri Halliwell grew up with one ambition. She wanted to be famous. She had the determination to succeed. If only she could get just one lucky break, one chance, she'd prove to all the doubters that she could make it - and make it BIG.

 But as Geri discovered, the road to fame can be a very rocky one. Often broke and lonely, her life became an endless round of failed auditions and dead-end jobs. Then one day she answered an ad in The Stage. Someone was looking to form an all-girl band. The rest is history.

 As Ginger Spice, Geri's stage presence was formidable, her outfits legendary. The Spice Girls became a worldwide sensation with a succession of number one singles, record-breaking concert tours, two phenomenally successful albums and a hit movie. But then, in May 1998, Geri knew it was time to walk away, time to get her feet back on the ground.

 Now focusing on her solo career, and with hit singles and a bestselling album already to her credit, Geri also works tirelessly on behalf of the UN, Breast Cancer Care and Comic Relief.

 Frank, funny and incisive, If Only is Geri's story. At its heart lies the truth about fame and how one young girl dared to take an incredible journey from obscurity to the world of her dreams.

 'Compelling...Geri sets the record straight once and for all.' OK!
