Candid, compelling, and heartbreaking - a father's story of a talent taken too soon and a legacy that will live on for generations...

On July 23, 2011, Amy Winehouse's family, friends, and fans around the world mourned the tragedy that this remarkable, talented, and extraordinarily generous young woman was now gone. A legion of dedicated fans had lost their idol; a devastated family had lost their Amy. With this difficult news came an outpouring of love and grief from her fans, along with troubling questions about Amy's very public struggles with drugs and alcohol, as people tried to understand how such a soulful singer had been silenced so young.

Now, in this intimate and tender account, her father and confidant, Mitch, offers an inside view of Amy's life as she lived it, putting to rest once and for all the controversies that have long surrounded her.

Shedding light on Amy's musical coming-of-age, Mitch explores how she honed her distinctive sound, created her unforgettable look, and channeled her own life into hits such as You Know I'm No Good, Rehab, and Back to Black - some of the most memorable and personal pop music in years.

    " It's really well written and charged with emotion, which makes sense because it's a father writing about his deceased little girl. You can feel his pain as he describes Amy's struggles with her addictions, but at the same time he shows her as a generous person with a big heart who wouldn't hesitate to help those who needed. Definitely a very inspiring book. "

    " A very honest look at Amy Winehouse's life through her father's eyes. It was clear that he loved a lot but also clear that she had issues that weren't dealt with properly. I'm sad that she only got 2 albums in during her short life but we learn from both sides of her life. "

    " This was an ok book. You can tell that it was not written by a read writer. I didn't find that there was much of extreme interest. "
