About the Book:

Florence "Blondie" Ballard, Diane "Diana" Ross and Mary Wilson met and became childhood friends during the 1950's. Under the watchful eye and skilled tutelage of Milton Jenkins, the friends later became the trio The Primettes, ultimately transformed into the greatest female singing group of all time - The Supremes. In 1967, Florence Ballard left the group, and though much has been written about her life after the Supremes, the true facts of her story have never surfaced - until now. Maxine "Precious" Ballard Jenkins - the sister of Florence Ballard - has written the true account of Florence Ballard's life, including her reasons behind leaving the group, the relationship she shared with childhood friends, Mary and Diane, and the dramatic turn her life took in later years. The book also helps to dispel many of the rumors surrounding Florence Ballard's death. Your view of Florence Ballard and her life will be dramatically reversed after reading this book!
