This is an astonishingly candid insight into the world of Billie Piper. Famous since the age of 15 - first as the face of Smash Hits, then as a pop singer with three No.1 hits in less than three years - Billie Piper has won over the critics and the British public for a second time by re-inventing herself as an actress in BBC productions of Much Ado About Nothing, The Canterbury Tales and, of course, Doctor Who.
And that's just the professional Billie. In this book, for the first time, she talks honestly about her whirwind romance and marriage to Chris Evans, about her battles with anorexia and the dark side of teen fame. Moving, funny and honest, this is a page-turning read by one of the nation's favourite stars.

'There's little doubt Billie's successfully made the difficult leap from teenybopper popster to acclaimed actress. But what's more astonishing is that the ambitious young girl left school without a GCSE to her name, battled anorexia and married at 18 came out of it all as a dignified, warm, talented woman.' * Daily Express * 'Billie is a remarkable woman and for the first time lifts the lid on her life to date with astonishing honesty.' * The Sun * 'Finally, a young star's autobiography that justifies the hundreds of pages' * Daily Telegraph * 'Why can't more stars be like honest Billie?' * Independent on Sunday * 'Funny and life-affirming.' * Glamour * 'A compelling read, full of shock revelations' * Woman *
