 “When this manuscript came in, I couldn’t put it down.  I could not believe that such a young woman could have such an inspiring life!” said Lori Perkins, Publisher of Riverdale Avenue Books. “She is the voice of her generation.”

Lorde: Your Heroine, How This Young Feminist Broke All the Rules and Succeeded explores the many facets of Lorde including her feminist viewpoints, how intellectually inclined she is, and her talent of writing meaningful music. Shapiro shows over the course of a year how Lorde’s career went from complete obscurity to superstardom.

“The intriguing thing about writing about Lorde is that she is so damned contrary to everything that pop music has become,” said author Marc Shapiro. “She’s a true intellect whose songs have been guided by great authors and deep thinkers rather than the predictable template of current pop music. She’s smart, creative, a true individual and only 17. Stories that are too good to be true but that ultimately are just that makes a biography of Lorde truly something special.”

Buy the ebook for $9.99 at Amazon and BarnesandNoble.com or the print version for $16.99.
