Nomination: Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir

Lauper, Cyndi (with Jancee Dunn). Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir. 2012. 352p. Atria Books, $26.00 (978-1439147856). Gr.9-up.

Cyndi Lauper was once named Ms. Magazine’s Woman of the Year (1984), so it should come as no surprise that “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” was intended as a feminist anthem. In this inspiring memoir, Lauper details her trials and successes, including her escape from a traumatic home life, her ascent in the music industry, and her critical work as an LGBT activist.
