Book Review: Burning Up: On Tour with the Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers give their fans a gift!

  • Grades: 3–5, 6–8

Do you know which of the three Jonas Brothers is a certified New Jersey babysitter? Well, after you read their new book, Burning Up: On Tour With the Jonas Brothers, you will know the answer to that question and much, much more.

If you are a Jonas Brothers fan, their new book is a must-have! Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas wrote the book, and they give their fans a personal look into their lives since becoming famous. You really feel like they are talking just to you as you read along.

The book contains a chapter on each Jonas brother by each Jonas brother. They reveal a lot of information, such as their musical influences, their favorite moments on tour, and even their plans for the future. I really liked these chapters because I felt that they shared very special things about their lives. I also liked that at the end of these chapters, there is a “My Favorite Things” page that gives you fun facts about each of them.

Another highlight of the book is all the photos. There are so many, and most have never been seen before. I thought it was great that the Jonas Brothers explain each picture and sometimes even include what they were feeling when the picture was taken. The pictures are also fun because most of them aren't posed. Instead, they are random shots of the Jonases performing or just hanging out. Through the pictures, the Jonas Brothers share what life is like on the road when they are on tour and what it's like backstage before and after their concerts.   

After reading Burning Up, I realized that the Jonas Brothers truly love and appreciate their fans. With this book, they have given their fans a great gift this holiday season!
