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.

Loving Kail

This book provided such a different light for Kail. The loving mother and partner she knows herself to be. Such a completely different side than what is portrayed in teen mom.

Better than expected 👌

I honestly was interested in knowing more of Kail's story and this book really gave me an insight of her story. I respect her even more and it gives the readers a better understanding of her. Great book! I finished it in a day and a half.

Interesting read but not a lot more insightful than watching the show

Narration was good. Book was ok written. A bit childish in nature. Didn’t learn too much more about her life than what’s already shown throughout the years on tv. First half was ok. Second half of book really dragged.
