*** NOW A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ***
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.

I was a teen mom myself and this book was such a great read. Though my story is almost completely different I could still relate to many parts of the book. Can’t wait to read the second one now!
Still hasn't even graduated with her associates, owed the IRS $80,000 in taxes and blew through all of her MTV money, and now has a second unplanned pregnancy. Wouldn't call that bulletproof.
I've been watching every single episode from day 1! Although I am older, these girls gave me strength when I needed it. And to see how far they have all come in all of their journeys should be a testament for all teen moms out there!!
