Angels: The Inside Scoop on The Stars of Charlie's Angels

So, after what seemed liked years of coming attractions taunting us with promises of adrenaline rushes, you finally got to see theCharlie's Angels movie. Of course, now you've developed an insatiable appetite for biographical tidbits on Drew, Cameron, and Lucy (if you don't know who I'm referring to you might want to consider crawling out from beneath that rock). Fear not, my curious moviegoing friends --- your nights of laying awake wondering about Lucy Liu's height, Cameron Diaz's nickname in high school, and Drew Barrymore's favorite flower are about to come to an end thanks to Nancy Krulik, author of ANGELS: The Inside Scoop on the Stars of Charlie's Angels. 

The only triple biography out there on the angelic starlets, Krulik's book strikes a good balance between fun facts and serious exploration of all the trials and tribulations the girls faced and overcame on their rise to stardom. You'll come away with both a deeper understanding of the three young women and the ability to wow your friends, loved ones, neighbors, and that strange man on the corner wearing only suspenders, with an endless stream of Angel pop trivia (Lucy is 5'1", Cameron's nickname in high school was Skeletor, and Drew's favorite flower is the daisy, by the way). And if the real life 411 simply isn't enough for you, the book includes an array of pictures that supplement each girl's life story.  

While I wouldn't necessarily say ANGELS: The Inside Scoop on the Stars of Charlie's Angels tells you "everything you want to know," as guaranteed on the cover --- for example, I would like to know why Drew, Cameron, and Lucy were no-shows at the party I invited them to last month --- it will answer many of the burning questions you have about Charlie's Angels, the next generation.
