Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 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 Girls.As the unofficial spokesperson for the Spice Girls, as the woman who coined the term "Girl Power", or as the heart-stopping beauty in the famous Union Jack dress, Geri Halliwell had quite a lot to do with making journalists and pop music fans around the world pay attention to a virtually unknown quintet from London. Geri's departure from the band in May 1998, when they were at their chart-busting peak, was front-page news around the world, leaving reporters and fans scrambling for answers. Now, in "If Only", Geri Halliwell is ready to share, detailing her troubled childhood, her father's untimely death, her breast-cancer scare, her complex relationships with the other Spice Girls, and her constant battle with feelings of inadequacy.Geri Halliwell had grown up telling herself "if only".

Inhaltsangabe: She dreamed of becoming a pop star. She fought her way through personal obstacles to emerge--against overwhelming odds--as an international pop sensation: Ginger Spice of the supergroup the Spice Girls. Then, at the height of her fame, Geri Halliwell walked away from it all.
If Only is the inspiring story of Halliwell's roller-coaster journey from insecure teenager to nineties' pop superstar. With wry humor and rare candor, she reveals the hunger for love and acceptance that propelled her from her working-class beginnings to fame beyond her wildest dreams.
She shares candid thoughts about her battle with bulimia...her unforgettable meeting with Prince Charles...her ongoing quest for spiritual fulfillment...the real reason she left the Spice Girls. And she takes us inside the mind and heart of the outrageously dressed performer whose public persona shouted "Girl Power!" yet who constantly strove to discover who she really was.
When she left the Spice Girls in 1998--with a string of number one hits behind her--she was ready to stop being Ginger Spice and start becoming Geri Halliwell. Today, at twenty-seven, she has already embarked on a new journey--a platinum solo album, three number one singles, and the inspirational role of Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations--rushing toward a future filled with success, fulfillment, and, hopefully, no regrets.
