A Helluva High Note
Surviving Life, Love, and American Idol
By Kara DioGuardi

Very good hardback and jacket

240 pages
colour illustrations, 2011

You know her as a former judge on "American Idol", but Kara DioGuardi is also one of the music business' most successful songwriters, having composed hits for many of today's best-loved recording artists - Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Santana and Enrique Iglesias to name just a few. But before she could write the kind of lyrics that speak to all of our hearts, she had to search her own. Throughout this incredibly motivational memoir, Kara confides stories of her travails and triumphs as she consciously made herself into the person she wanted to be - experiences that have given her the resilience and perspective to deal with all that was yet to come. Because her music is always honest, raw and passionate, it's evident that Kara invests a piece of herself into all her work. Using the stories behind her hit songs as a vehicle, the pieces come together to tell the complete tale of how a girl raised in a conservative household had the courage to shed everyone else's expectations of her so that she could find her own voice. It's the story of how she battled debilitating stage fright, confronted the challenges of a tough male-dominated business, and overcame the eating disorder that was ultimately a reflection of her damaged self-esteem to become the confidant, accomplished, fearless, adventurous, behind-the-scenes hell-raiser she is today.
