Ttle with feelings of inadeuacyGeri Halliwell had grown up telling herself if only If only she were taller If only she were thinner If only she were talented By learning never to give up never to accept the status uo Geri turned a life of urban poverty ill health and broken promises into one of wealth celebrity and social activism An inspirational book from a remarkable young woman who took a step back to gainperspective and to devote herself to the causes for which she feels strongly If Only is than a real life Cinderella story It is a lesson in perseverance and self esteem for girls and women everywhere Geri Halliwell was always my favourite Spice Girl Her cheekiness her bright red hair her sense of humour I loved everything about her and still do However up until recently I d never owned any of her two autobiographies despite this one being published in 1999 well I was 5 when this was released so therefore had never read them And I m really glad that I left it until now to read as my 543 page mass market paperback edition of If Only took me straight back to my childhood and made me nostalgic in the way only the Spice Girls can do There s a recurring theme throughout this book that to me says be careful what you wish for because you just might get it Geri always wanted to be famous whether it was by being a glamour model a tv presenter or as one of five of the most successful British girlband ever But when she rapidly achieved her dreams she realised that the reality of them could never exceed her fantasies Which in a way is really sad as even though she was in the biggest group in the world at the time part of Geri was still desperately unhappy As well as this Geri openly speaks about her battles with bulimia and not being able to grieve properly after her fathers death I found these scenes really hard to read but it shows that she is a human behind the celebrityMy favourite scenes to read were about Geri s decision to uit the Spice Girls at the time when it happened I was 4 and was desperately heartbroken but reading the book I really do understand why she decided to leave Of course its still sad to reflect on my favourite member leaving my favourite band but now I completely understand why she chose to do so I also really liked reading about the formation of the Spice Girls and reading all the behind the scenes stuff about them becoming friends and in rehearsals and preparing for world domination All in all I gave this 55 as it has become one of my favourite celebrity autobiographies I m now going to start reading Geri s second book Just For The Record and be taken back to my childhood all over again with what happened next in Geri s solo career

    Geri Halliwell was always my favourite Spice Girl Her cheekiness her bright red hair her sense of humour I loved everything about her and still do However up until recently I'd never owned any of her two autobiographies despite this one being published in 1999 well I was 5 when this was released so therefore had never read
