Publisher's Summary

Maci Bookout, the reality television megastar of Teen Mom and the New York Times best-selling author of Bulletproof, offers down-to-earth, practical advice on how to navigate life, love, and everything in between.

Since catapulting to reality TV stardom on the hit MTV series Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant, Maci Bookout has become a mother of three, a successful businesswoman, and a sought-after motivational speaker - all by the tender age of 25.

As she traveled across the country, speaking to young people and sharing her inspiring story, the one comment Maci kept hearing over and over was, "You're so strong. You make it all look so easy." But Maci was not born "bulletproof." She taught herself to be strong despite her struggles and to turn adversity into advantages.

In I Wasn't Born Bulletproof, best-selling author Maci shares with listeners the truth behind her Teflon exterior and offers fun, inspirational advice for everyone.

I'm a big fan of Maci but this book was pretty dull. it was an advice book with pretty irrelevant advice.

I loved this book so much I sent it to two of my friends to read. I love all the life lessons and advice Maci gave, and eye opening ways of thinking about things. Worth the read, 110%.

Encouraging!

I have recently become a mother to a fantastic little one. This book was encouraging to myself as a mother and even to my husband who has had struggles with depression, anxiety, and the the need for others input in his life. I can already see a difference in our relationship and I'm so thankful for these stories to be the unexpected tool that they were.

I Wasn't Born Bulletproof

What did you like best about this story?

What I liked about this story, was her personal stories. She does a great job at reading, however, I feel as if it took excessively long.

Any additional comments?

This is a good book to read if you are looking for life advice. I am not certain that some of the things she writes about are actually relevant to her, if they are then awesome. I could do with less quotes as well. Overall, great book. I would prefer to read an actual copy of the book rather than the audiobook again.

I Wasn't Born Bulletproof

I highly recommend reading this book. There are many lessons in this book that I can take away and use in the future. Maci Bookout did an AMAZING job with this book!!!! I also love that she did the narration herself. It helps you connect on a more personal level, hearing her read it.

You're story was worth telling, it made a difference in this girls life !

Maci's journey is something I've followed since I was about 12 years old. I've read both of her books now and I've enjoyed both of them immensely ! The lessons she gives specifically in this book I can relate too as a 19 year old trying to become independent and maintain healthy relationships and friendships. I do not have a children but I am in a relationship of almost four years and the advice she gives was so HELPFUL and comforting. The quotes throughout the novel are amazing and fit perfectly! Her advice is so helpful and has made me feel less alone in knowing that someone else has tried to figure all this shit out too. Your story is worth telling and has made a difference in my life so thank you! Thank you Maci for being real and allowing people like me a chance to learn from you and your life. If you haven't read it or listened to it yet, you're missing out !
