Belle Gibson convinced the world she had healed herself from terminal brain cancer with a healthy diet. She built a global business based upon her claims. There was just one problem: she'd never had cancer. In 2015, journalists uncovered the truth: this hero of the wellness world, with over 200,000 followers, international book deals and a best-selling smartphone app, was a fraud.

This book is so detailed and surprisingly, so packed with info, its fantastic! Considering how little ACTUAL TRUTH that there is out there regarding Belle, this book digs everything up. It's so, so juicy. The author has interviewed other cancer patients to illustrate how little Belle actually understood cancer and how it works. Dr's are spoken with, Belles partner speaks, ex's too, childhood friends, friends from her teens, Belles parents talk, Belles Grandmother also. The insight into Belles book deal is fascinating, as is Belle's relationship with "higher up's" at Apple & the details of Belle's incredible partnership with Apple is captivating! This book is so well written and on top of that, the performance of the narrator of this book was excellent, he did a fantastic job, keeping you intrigued from start to end and the reading was executed perfectly!
I strongly recommend this book! If you think you know the story? If you think that you have followed closely via media? I you think you know this stuff?... you don't! If you are interested in this train wreck that is Belle Gibson then do yourself a favour and grab this book now!

I'm strong. I can be tough. I've been broken. I'm opinionated. I'm a people-pleaser. I'm spoilt. I'm needy. I contradict myself. I try to do good. I want to do good. I'm impassioned. I'm observant. Most importantly, I tell the truth. And this is my story.

Lily Allen writes AND READS this (not really an) autobiography. this book is less autobiography & more of a set of stories in no particular order that set lies straight in a way that only Lily Allen can.

I loved this book! I admit that Im a huge TLC fan, but this was more than just some group gossip. This is a story about strength and survival.
The perfect audiobook if you suffer from chronic illness or if you just need some inspiration!

In her current reign at Power 105.1 and for nearly two decades at New York's Hot 97, Angie Martinez has had one of the highest rated radio shows in the country. After working her way up as an intern, she burst on the scene as a young female jock whose on-air "Battle of the Beats" segment broke records and became a platform for emerging artists like a young Jay Z. Angie quickly became known for intimate, high-profile interviews, mediating feuds between artists, and taking on the most controversial issues in hip-hop.
