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.

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.

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!

Kail is an awesome mommy and person

This book was great! Kail has been through it all and she is still aspiring! I loved this book, I love her podcasts and I have watched her grow into an amazing woman on Teen Mom! I’m 58 years old, but this young lady inspires me daily!

Keep it up Kail, you are going to go far in life.

Excellent

We’ve been following Kail and the other teen moms for years. I never really thought of it as such but I was a teen mom back in the late 80s. I had to buy a house right after I turned 18 because I was pregnant. It was super hard. I was a single mom with two little kids and in college and I can’t imagine any of it being recorded for the world to see. It’s been great watching Kail grow up and following her success story. We are so proud of all you have accomplished so far and can’t wait to continue the journey. You should be super proud of yourself for overcoming everything and doing it mostly with grace and class. And your kids are just beautiful. You’re an inspiration and you give hope to young mothers. I hope you are blessed with everything good going forward. The biggest way you can change the world is by being a good mother. And you are nailing it.

Not bad

I liked the first half the best - it felt more transparent and gave some stories about her life we did not see on tv. I felt the second half was a lot I already knew. She’s one strong person.

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.

THANKS FOR GIVING US A SNIPPET OF YOUR LIFE BEHIND THE CAMERAS. I KNOW IT TAKES ALOT TO PUT OTHERS IN YOUR BUSINESS BUT FOR FANS LIKE ME, WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HONESTY AND FOR SHARING. I WAS ALSO A TEEN MOM AND I'VE FOLLOWED THE SHOW SINCE DAY ONE SO THANKS AGAIN KAYLE!

Great book!

I’m a fan of teen mom-2 so I thought I already knew Kail’s story. However, there is definitely more to the story then what is shown on MTV. Listening to this book made me look at Kail in a different light. I feel like the book provided more insight as to why Kail did the things she did on teen mom 2. She is a very strong woman who’s trauma has significant impacted her path in life. I had a few Aha moments during this book that made me realize why I made the life choices I did. I really enjoyed this book and listened to it all in one day. I rated the performance a 4 star only because I really wished Kail was her own narrator.

i loved how the story was written, however the narrators voice and tone was annoying
