Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon - and the Journey of a Generation by Sheila Weller

As a big fan of the music of Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon, I was really looking forward to reading this book, and I wasn’t disappointed. The lives, loves and dreams of all three iconic singer-songwriters are detailed in this well-researched chronicle by an award-winning magazine journalist and New York Times bestselling author. Emotions and angst from life events and love lost provide material for their heart-felt songs. The talented and ground-breaking artists’ lives are intertwined as their careers take off during the early days of the women’s movement. This captivating page-turner which is listed on Library Journal’s Best Books of 2008 serves as a rock soundtrack of the 60s and 70s and a social history of a wild and momentous era.
