This New York Times best-selling memoir is read by Maci herself!
When a good southern girl becomes a single teen mom, how does she hold onto her dreams?
Maci Bookout was just a normal, slightly overachieving high school girl in Chattanooga, Tennessee. But then she got pregnant, and everything turned upside down. Even as she rose to fame on MTV's hit series Teen Mom, Maci was struggling to balance life as a single teen mom with her own hopes and dreams...all while honoring her own sense of independence.
This is the true story of how she took charge of the unexpected to build a life for herself and her son, Bentley, and managed not to go crazy in the process. Because sometimes growing up is an act of will...and Maci's will is bulletproof.

"Loved the story"
I loved the story and understand more of what she went though. But the narration could have had a little more character to it.
I enjoyed the book very much. I learned a few things I didn't know before. My only issue with it was There was no emotion to the reading. Her tone was very stagnant. Other than that I loved it! Especially that Maci narrated it herself.
"love this book. it was amazing. to hear everything"
i love this book ao much. Macis so amazing snd the strongest women. i couldnt donhalf od what shes done.
I loved this book and the way she read it was perfect, she's so cute with her accent! Thanks for sharing Maci!
I would absolutely recommend this book & the message it with holds to ANYONE of this lifestyle! I've never appreciated a book nor have I ever read a book that changed my perspectives for the better and gave me so much reassurance.
I enjoyed this book. I have been watching teen mom and 16 and pregnant since the beginning. I'm actually around the same age as these girls. I am now pregnant with my first child and it was refreshing to hear her side of the story because TV only shows you want they want you to see. Maci is as sweet and down to earth as she is on the show. It also made it more enjoyable that I knew who she was talking about in the book because I've seen the show. Overall, I liked it.
"One of the best Teen Moms"

enjoyable to hear the other side of the story after what you see on tv
