Description

Short-listed for the Specsavers National Book Awards 2018 in Autobiography/Biography

The number one Sunday Times best seller. 

So, this is me. Lily Allen.

I am a woman.

I am a mother.

I was a wife.

I drink.

I have taken drugs.

I have loved and been let down.

I am a success and a failure.

I am a songwriter.

I am a singer.

I am all these things and more.

When women share their stories, loudly and clearly and honestly, things begin to change - for the better.

This is my story.

Deeply Emotional

I was really surprised at the complex and emotional life story Lily tells. The voulnerability in her words and voice and the story of her perseverance and hardships really resonated with me. I highly recommend this book to anyone in a transition or who is having issues they want to work through. Learning from Lily's account of events, in my opinion could really help an individual.

Love the sincerity!

A personal and sincerely view of a world that is always full of glitter and marketing, a story of a person who got famous but struggle with being human, like we all do. love it!

Only the best from the best

I’ve been a fan of Lily’s for a while now, I’d recommend all 4 of her albums if you’re wanting to get into her! This book made me laugh, cry, want to scream all in just 30 chapters. Best 6 hours and some odd minutes ever spent in intervals!! Lily if you see this I love you queen!!!
-Lily Allen’s biggest fan <3

Lily in her own very self aware words

I have always been a fan of Lily. I had no idea of the difficulties in her early life and her spiral out of control after she became a star. I so appreciate that she in no way blames circumstances for what happened. It just is. This happened....this is what her response was. She is very self aware of how her actions impacted her life and career, children's lives and husband.
I appreciate so much that she reads this herself. Books are always better when read by the author.

Love her, so real and honest it’s scary

Unless you are a pop star I guess you never know what truly happens. All we get is the media telling us what they think or see from an action or a picture. This is a memoir, deep into the mind of someone the media has deemed superficial and dumb. She is mind blowing my honest, she owns her mistakes and lets you into the deep dark secret areas most people don’t ever let people in. I loved the book and will definitely look at lily Allen differently but not negatively, just stronger ❤️❤️ hearing from Allen herself just makes it more real.

Gripping, eloquent and really honest

Allen reads the book in a matter of fact tone, that makes it both easy to deal with the uneasy topics the book, but also leave you baffled at how much she had to put up with for it to be her norm.
I don‘t know why, because it‘s quite intense, but listened through in just 2 days. I can only recommend it.
