Discover how Zendaya conquered the worlds of film, TV and fashion to become the face of a generation.

Zendaya is a phenomenon. Beginning as a precocious child star on the Disney Channel, she has since graduated to adult roles in some of the biggest movies of the last five years, including The Greatest Showman, Dune and Marvel’s Spider-Man trilogy. In television, she is the star of Euphoria, which has become the second most-watched HBO show of all time after Game of Thrones – in large part thanks to her presence. Today she is, according to some industry analysts, "the most popular actor in the world".

In this riveting and in-depth biography from the publishers of Harry, Adele and Billie Eilish, journalist and author Alison James explores every aspect of Zendaya’s life and career to date. Featuring a stunning, full-color photographic plate section and spanning everything from her early forays into music, to her sensational ascent in the fashion world and her high-profile personal life – including her relationship with Spider-Man co-star Tom Holland – this is the most complete portrait yet of one of the world’s hottest stars.
