Put on your blue suede shoes and get ready for another addition to the Who Was…? series! The King could not have come from humbler origins: Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, during the Depression, he grew up with the blues music of the rural South, the gospel music of local churches, and the country-western classics. But he forged a sound all his own—and a look that was all his own, too. With curled lip, swiveling hips, and greased pompadour, Elvis changed popular music forever, ushering in the age of rock and roll. Geoff Edgers’s fascinating biography of this icon of American pop culture includes black and- white illustrations on nearly every spread.

Great book... High price
This book is great but high price... I read this book in less than a hour, but if you have AR a reading program in your school it is available in all of them. I would highly suggest this book when you have a lot of things to do so you have a long time to finish it.
It’s not that good
The sample is ok because the table of contents is like half the book and you only get to read like three pages (it’s something like that) but it’s just bad I just want to read more of the book.
