Sean Smith’s Tulisa Hits the Bestseller Charts on Release

Tulisa by Sean Smith

July 10, 2012

Sean Smith’s sensational biography of Tulisa Contostavlos, Tulisa, has climbed straight to number 10 in The Sunday Times' hardback bestseller list in its first weeks of publication. Published by Simon & Schuster at the end of June, the book is an authoritative profile of the most remarkable new star in the country today.

Tulisa Contostavlos was an eleven-year-old schoolgirl when her Uncle Byron offered her £20 to be the singer in a new band with son Dappy and his friend Fazer. She held out for £50 and started on a rollercoaster ride to fame that led to her becoming an ‘overnight’ sensation on The X Factor.

Tulisa is the first biography of a girl determined to leave behind a life in which underage sex, smoking weed, drinking cider and bullying were the norm. Her love of music and an unswerving desire to make money, buy a house of her own and drive a sports car provided her with the incentive to escape.

The UK’s leading celebrity biographer, Sean Smith has written the gripping and inspirational story of how a lonely and bullied young girl transformed herself into ‘The Female Boss’, and has revealed that behind the tough exterior and dazzling smile is a funny, loyal and sensitive young woman.
