From ex Spice Girl Geri Halliwell one of the world's most famous pop superstars comes her own honest revealing and poignant life story For the first time ever Geri herself takes readers past the glamorous facade of Ginger Spice to show the vulnerably real young woman behind it Illustrated with dozens of photographs If Only is part coming of age story and part inspirational memoir chronicling Geri's search for acceptance and purpose that would lead her into and ultimately away from music's greatest girl group phenomenon the Spice GirlsAs the unofficial spokesperson for the Spice Girls as the woman who coi. As a Spice Girls fan of course I was going to enjoy this As an aspiring writer I identified with a lot of Geri's career strugglesI found the first 13 of the book to be the most honest and thoughtful perhaps because she had the most distance from it the most time to reflect and understand The middle 13 about the rise of the Spice Girls was fascinating because I could track my own journey along with it Did I remember that scandal Where was I when they were doing this concert Etc Not to mention all the behind the scenes info like her friendship with Mel B or their interactions with other celebrities at award shows or going out dancing with her bodyguardI also enjoyed the connections I saw between her storytheir story and their music I could see where certain lines came from or where certain scenes in their movie clearly were inspired by real life experiences Again as a fan that's just a blastBut toward the end as Geri was feeling and distanced from the Spice Girls phenomenon Present Day Me felt like I could see an increasing gap between what she was perceiving and what was actually happening I'm no expert but it seems to me like Geri was a deeply insecure person possibly even a deeply unhappy person with depressive and self destructive tendencies and eventually the fame and intense touring schedule just got to be too much Understandable It seems like the highs were super high and the lows were super low I appreciated her honest portrayal of how wonderful and simultaneously how stressful that level of success is But I suspect that if it hadn't been the Spice Girls bringing her problems to the forefront it would have been something else Now there's nothing wrong with that it's human but she didn't seem to be fully aware of it Instead she kept trying to justify her actions looking outward instead of inward even as she claimed to be doing the opposite And for all her assertions that she was happier and felt better after leaving I didn't see it She was doing different work fulfilling work sure But she still seemed to be floundering grasping at straws every which way and hoping for the best Again that's all very human it just made me feel a bit sorry that she struggled so muchSide note She kept looking for causes to support but it seemed obvious to me that she would have been and could probably still be an excellent spokesperson for mental health issues such as eating disorders depression or anxiety But again I think she didn't have the distance to perceive that yetOh her father's death seemed to be hugely unresolved for her as wellIt was interesting for me to realize that this was written in 1999 right after the split I'd be so curious to see what she has to say about it all now And of course to see what the other girls' views of these same events were As Geri says than once in the book we each have our own perspectives our own versions of the truth This was hers and I enjoyed reading itOn a writing note it's not brilliant but there are some nice turns of phrases here and there and overall it's uite an easyconversational narrative
