When we saw the ad for this on the cover of Publishers Weekly, we actually squealed. We don’t know what we’re more excited about: Sanjaya Malakar’s section, Jordin Sparks’s inspiring tale of overcoming her privileged childhood, or the presumably heavily edited “Special Introduction” by Paula Abdul. And did they send this thing back to press to accommodate the story of little Jamil Labarron Idol McCowan? We hope so. It comes out November 1. We’re getting in line today.
