Repost via @kath3000: "Like so many of you, I remember exactly where I was when I learned that Aaliyah was killed. It’s one of those moments that has stuck with me forever, and through my writing career I have written about Baby Girl a lot—I guess to fill the void of never getting to interview her. Today, I am so honored to unveil the cover of my book 'Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah' and announce that pre-orders are officially live on Amazon. I don’t mean to hype myself up here, but YOU ARE NOT READY FOR WHAT THIS BOOK BEHOLDS. The release date has been moved up a week too, to August 17, 2021. This is because the fans wanted it to be. Fans like me. Fans like you. So thank you to everyone who participated, my Team Aaliyah, Aaliyah Army, Aaliyah's Angels, all of y’all who are going SO hard for this book. This book is for us. And for her. /.\ Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah, coming August 17, 2021 via Atria Books / Simon & Schuster.

Kathy's captivating words will leave you in such awe and wonder, be it a new fan or 1st generation fan, there will be something for all fans to come together to reminisce and learn who the REAL Aaliyah was all about. Those who knew her personally and worked alongside her are also a part of this book. So much to say right now...but I don't wanna spoil the surprise.
