"While there's also an enticing music memoir by Elton John this month, I'm looking forward to this one even more"
The Bookseller
"an entertaining reveal-all read"
Woman & Home
"...when not resorting to padding, Face It makes for an engaging and occasionally surprising read"
The Guardian
"The Blondie singer is a reluctant memoirist and what drove her to write this is unclear – but thank God she did."
New Statesman
"For Blondie fans, Face It is rich in interesting snippets"
The Independent
"this is Harry’s story, and her straight talking — not to mention the wealth of photographs — makes this an appealing, celebratory memoir"
The Times
"She spends a chapter discussing the marvel that is the opposable thumb, as though straining for the word count on a homework assignment"
The Observer

`I was saying things in songs that female singers didn't really say back then. I wasn't submissive or begging him to come back, I was kicking his ass, kicking him out, kicking my own ass too. My Blondie character was an inflatable doll but with a dark, provocative, aggressive side. I was playing it up, yet I was very serious.'
