About the Author

Farrah Abraham was one of the original girls featured in MTV’s 16 & Pregnant, but is most recognized as one of the stars of MTV’s hit show, Teen Mom. She has been featured in Seventeen Magazine and Us Weekly, among many others, and is frequently documented and discussed in online entertainment blogs. She lives in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This is her first book.

Customer Reviews

This book was written poorly.
The book is more like a bad narrative of an immature highschool relationship, not the gut wrenching pain of losing someone you loved like you imagine it would be.
I was hoping to get a better understanding about why farrah is the way she is to her parents but it seems like she is just spoiled!

I read this book in less than a day. As a Teen Mom viewer, I had hoped to better understand Farrah's backstory. I'm a 29 year old mother of a 4 year old daughter, so I expected the maturity level of this book to be below expectations; however, after reading the book I definitely wouldn't recommend it for teens, and adults would most likely be disgusted by the rationale of Farrah's teenage lifestyle.

Do not read any further if you want to avoid any spoilers...

As a teenager, I dabbled in alcohol and the occasional drug but it's no wonder Farrah got pregnant! Farrah was spending the night/out all night with random people, drinking heavily, having sex in her own home only to be caught by her father who knocked the crap out of the boy and then was sent to jail...not to mention that after that incident her parents actually enrolled Farrah in the same school as Derek at the suggestion of a counselor! After reading the book you will understand why Farrah's parents have had enough of her. If you want to read about how having sex for the first time felt like screwing a tree branch, how amniotic fluid smells like Derek's cum, or how peeing in some random guy's bed one night and then having your period all over the same bed the next night is so funny then read this book. Let's not forget how full of herself Farrah is...

Quite frankly, I hope Sophia never reads this book because her mother definitely made some wrong choices in her past and to me, they are still happening.

This book is Farrah's attempt to keep herself in the limelight, and make some more easy money. It is poorly written, and not worth the money. If you feel the NEED to read it, the library is a good option.

The book is an abomination to literature. I may not be a great writer, but if I wrote a book, I would hire someone to be meticulous about editing it. The grammar and poor writing style is so distracting. I did not know what was worse, the grammar? Or the actual content of the book.

Farrah said she wrote the book as a type of therapy. It should have stayed a type of therapy, as there are many things that were in poor taste to share (especially as her daughter is going to read this book one day). I am surprised that some sections were permitted by the editor, but I suppose shock value and dirty details sell. If it is a book for teens, it is ill advised that some sections and descriptions were allowed. I would NEVER let my 12 year old read this crap.

Farrah's descriptions of Derek are very unflattering, and it makes me wonder why she mourns him so passionatly, and blames all the challanges she faces on his passing. I also wonder about the possibility of a lawsuit from his family. Even if what she wrote is true, or her opinion, there are a lot of things said that will impact how people judge him.

I think it is quite possible that Farrah has borderline personality disorder. I also think she may be detached from reality. I pity Sofia, as she will be raised in this environment. (I acknowledge that Farrah was raised in a dysfunctional environment as well, which has obviously impacted her greatly. Perhaps this family should not procreate. I am sorry that adoption was not chosen, as there are huge issues here.

I thought about maybe buying this book to see just how bad it was, based on the other reviews, but I decided to check out the preview ("Look Inside!") before buying. I'm so glad I did. In a chapter (?) called "Best St. Patrick's Day Ever!" (yes, complete with exclamation point) she writes such gems as, "The next thing I knew, though, Derek and I were making out, right there in the backseat, for straight-up an hour. It didn't seem like an hour had gone by, but I check my watch and time doesn't lie. That's what it was always like with Derek, an hour would feel like a minute."

Yes, for real.

This book is what seems to be a day by day recount of her entire relationship with her dead baby daddy. She does not paint him in a good light, and she makes herself look incredibly stupid for staying with him long enough to get pregnant.

She doesn't discuss at all why she is so disrespectful to her parents (what happened between them?), her depression (she uses one small paragraph to talk about it) or her "drug usage" (again, one sentence about her using cocaine at a party).

Did it ever occur to her that her daughter is going to read this? Her poor kid is going to read terrible story after terrible story about her father. Also, did she need to include the part about what Derrick's juice...SMELLS like? Disgusting, classless, trashy. How sad that her daughter has to grow up in this family.

I really enjoyed Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant. I wanted to like Farrah because I thought maybe she was just really misunderstood on TV and wasn't coming across as herself and at times I felt bad for her especially dealing with Derek dying. So I was hoping her book would paint her in a different light and would be an in depth memoir of her life but it really wasn't at all what I expected and I was disappointed.

I felt like I was reading a little girls diary and literally day to day accounts of the most pointless ridiculous stupid stories and dramas of her life and everything that ever happened between her and Derek which was WAY TO MUCH INFO BTW! I'm very surprised she wrote about the smell of his cum or how huge he was during sex...seriously gross! No wonder she got pregnant because she snuck him into her house every night to have sex with her parents home.

The book really did prove how selfish, spoiled, stuck up and immature she really is and THAT is exactly why she cries and cries about having no friends. She bashes both Derek and his family throughout the book saying how terrible of a life Derek led (smoking weed and "flirting with ugly girls") but then talks about herself drinking and partying every night & doing coke. Also has no idea why his family never liked her when she was having sex in different rooms all over their home with him. Its very trashy and unclassy even for a 16 year old at the time and for her to write about it how she did at her age now.

Just a way to make easy money but unfortunately her reputation is already ruined. sad
