Publisher's Summary

Fans of MTV's Teen Mom have watched Kailyn Lowry grow from a vulnerable, pregnant teen into a fiercely independent young mother. Through it all Kailyn has faced challenges with her head held high and her spirit intact. In a moving effort to finally put the past behind her, Kailyn shares her troubled, often painful story and reveals the dark secrets she has so closely guarded. Guided by the single principle of helping other young girls like her, she takes the listener behind the scenes, writing candidly about her struggle to provide a safe home for her son, breaking her silence on the question of her sexuality, and sharing the traumatic sexual experiences that have left her deeply scarred.

Preferred the author to read the story

I was not a fan of the narrator. It would have been a lot better for the author of the book to read the story.

Kail is real & relatable...keep up the good work!

GREAT to hear from Kailyn... MTV doesn't fully show everything so it's wonderful she decided to share firsthand experiences. Keep being a wonderful mother & doing what you know is right for your children Kailyn Lowery!

Ridiculous

In the beginning of the book it started off nice. explaining her situation with her mom, MTV, etc. Then in chapter 15 she started explaining her view of religion. I felt it was very unnecessary and belittling of the Christian Faith. you can choose not to believe... That's your right, but to speak so low about the Christian religion that some of your own fans choose to follow, turned me off and I wish there was a way I could get my money back.

Great book!

I listened to this in my car when I would be driving to work / home from work / ect. Kailyn did a wonderful job putting her life story into a book. I enjoyed it and learned some things I didn't know from only watching 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom 2.

I love me some Kail!

I’ve always liked Kail on Teen Mom and after hearing this book I LOVE her now! She’s always been judged on her relationships and appearance but never on her mother skills? She’s a good mom of boys who isn’t afraid to give ppl or a piece of her mind I’m here for it. After listening to her story more in depth I’ve grown a tremendous amount of appreciation for her because she’s overcome SO much and went against all odds!! I would recommend this book to a friend and just might listen again ☺️ Enjoy!
