Praise for" I'm Glad I Did "
"I loved everything about "I'm Glad I Did."... Who better than Cynthia Weil to describe authentically what it's like to write a great lyric, and weaving in Brooks Arthur, Bob Dylan, Dick Charles and the Brill Building give the story atmosphere at their very mention. JJ is utterly lovable, believable, and multidimensional, with all the fashion awareness that I never had but Cynthia most certainly did. Not just brava, Cynthia. Bravissima!!"
--Carole King, multi-Grammy winning singer-songwriter of "Tapestry," and author of the "New York Times" Bestseller "A Natural Woman"
"Cynthia Weil delivers a pitch-perfect debut about defining yourself and following your dreams. "I'm Glad I Did" expertly blends music and romance with a mystery that crescendos into page-turning ending. Encore! Encore!"
--Elizabeth Eulberg, author of "The Lonely Hearts Club
""Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Weil, songwriter of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," provides period detail about the fledgling rock-'n'-roll industry that adds verisimilitude to JJ and Luke's surprising journey of discovery. Mystery, romance and insider music-industry detail distinguish this intriguing 1960s coming-of-age story."
