Read the full, enthralling story of the 20-something London girl who took the music world by storm. Topping the charts for weeks on end and winning consistent international critical acclaim, Adele already has a host of awards and record-breaking achievements to her name. Find out about her upbringing as the child of a single mother in north London and her time at the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon where her peers included Leona Lewis and Jessie J. Learn how her early performances after graduating from the BRIT school along with a MySpace demo led to her being signed up XL Records, and then voted the Brit Awards Critics' Choice even before her debut album, 19, was released. Discover how real-life heartbreak inspired many of her iconic songs, including 'Rolling in the Deep' and 'Someone Like You'; and how a diverse range of musical influences - from the Spice Girls and Gabrielle to Etta James and contemporary Nashville sounds - contributed to her record-smashing second album, 21. This fully updated paperback edition of the bestselling biography also now includes the story of how Adele found happiness with boyfriend (and rumoured husband) Simon Konecki; became a mother; and came to record the towering theme song for the James Bond movie, Skyfall.

Scrupulously researched...interesting and enlightening...Sanderson writes very well indeed' The Stage
