Voice Lessons: A Sisters Story Read Online Free - Voice Lessons is the story of Cara and Idina - a real-life Anna and Elsa story that will be familiar to every woman with a big sister and a must-read for Idina Menzel fans.
It's the story of one younger sister growing up in the shadow of a larger-than-life older sister - looking up to her, wondering how they were alike and how they were different and, ultimately, learning how to live her own life and speak in her own voice on her own terms. As Cara Mentzel, studied, explored, married, gave birth (twice) and eventually became an elementary school teacher, she watched her sister, Idina Menzel, from the wings and gives readers a front row seat to opening night of Rent and Wicked, a seat at the Tonys, and a place on the red carpet when her sister taught millions more to -Let It Go-. Voice Lessons is the story of sisters - sisters with pig tails, sisters with boyfriends and broken hearts, sisters as mothers and aunts, sisters as teachers and ice-queens, sisters as allies and confidantes. As Cara puts it, My big sister is Tony-Award-Winning, Gravity-Defying, Let-It-Go-Singing Idina Menzel who has received top billing on Broadway marquees, who has performed for Barbra Streisand and President Obama, at the Super Bowl and at the Academy Awards. The world knows her as 'Idina Menzel', but I call her 'Dee'.- Voice Lessons is their story.

I never heard of this book or goodreads, but yesterday I found a copy of this book. I need to say what has happened to me because I still don't believe it. I was taking my daughter Hope to the library when she found a small collection of items on the sidewalk. Being 15 she just picked it up, and...

This book is evidence that the Mentzel talent pool runs very deep. I must start off by saying that while I'm an avid reader, I never read autobiographies. I was lucky enough to win an advanced copy of Voice Lessons by Cara Mentzel and was immediately drawn into this book. I'm surprised to learn t...

I absolutely loved this book. Let me just say I am a slow reader but between getting it in the mail at night and college classes, I can proudly brag it took me two days to read because I was so invested. There was humor, there was drama, and so much heart in this book. It's difficult for me to tr...

I was loaned an early uncorrected copy by my friend J. and it was awesome! The author has a way with words that just flow like poetry! Very hard to put down, you just want to keep it going and going. I literally didn't want to return the book to him! I come from a large family and it seemed so ve...

I'll be honest, I debated buying this but am a bit of an Idina Menzel fan. Typically, I wait for our library to have the book but I through caution to the wind and bought Cara Mentzel's first book (of many, I hope). Buy this book if you are a fan of her sister. Buy this book if you have ever doub...

I really enjoyed this book! I was a little taken aback by the fact that it is written by and from the perspective of Idina's younger sister Cara rather than Idina herself but found this to be my favorite part of the entire thing! Memoirs are often repetitive; you only read about famous people wit...

Really looking forward to reading this book - never easy to grow up in the shadow of a sibling, eager to learn how Cara has navigated the challenges and come out happy and fulfilled.

Great writing. Funny, beautiful, honest stories. Relatable. I think I like Cara better than Idina after reading this! Highly recommend!
