"I went from nobody on Saturday evening to national fame on Sunday morning," said Susan Boyle, the Scotswoman who sang her way into the hearts of millions on “Britain’s Got Talent” (a performance that went viral on YouTube). Narrator Elaine Smith has a clear brogue and actually sounds like a nervous auditioner as she recounts taking the wrong bus on the way to the studio, being filmed as she eats a sandwich, and being a fan of judge Piers Morgan. This engaging introduction to Boyle's story will win listeners over as she tells how a girl dubbed as a slow learner became one of the world's most popular singers. The story sounds a bit choppy at times, but Boyle's self-deprecating charm carries the audiobook. Boyle's story of her persistence and sudden rise to fame will inspire her many fans.
