This book from Charlotte Church is amazing! Despite being only 21, her life story fills 299 whole pages. The whole story is gripping, with some brilliant pictures of her and friends and family, as well as stages of her career. It is so gripping I read it non-stop!

Charlotte, despite not seeming able to stretch her talents past singing and presenting, has proved that wrong with her excellent writing skills. If you are even in the slightest way thinking about buying this, do it. You won't regret it.

This book has been written really well and the way Charlotte tells her story is like listening to a really good friend talking about her life. Fun and easy to read I would recommend this book to everyone.

Though cynics amongst us often argue that your early twenties is surely no age to be writing your life story, it seems that Charlotte Church could be the exception when she's lived a kind of fast forward fairytale over the past 10 years.

Far eclipsing the tastelessly written memoirs her former boyfriend, Steve Johnson brought out three years ago, "Keep Smiling" is as frank, funny and rubbish-free as you'd expect from a lady so well reknowned for always speaking her mind.

She talks openly about her relationship with her family, hitting the top as an opera and pop rock singer and with her hit Channel 4 chat show, her relationship with other half Gavin Henson, whilst also dealing with more tough times like the split from her manager whilst still only 13. Not only is it perfect, well written reading, but you close the book with an overwhelming sense of admiration for her - you really feel closer to her, for want of a better word. Marvellous.

Excellent page turner from Charlotte Church. Very honest biography and full of funny and heartwarming family tales. If you want to know the truth about all the gossip written about Charlotte then this is the book for you!!

Charlotte comes across just like she does on her chat show - a LOVELY down to earth welsh lass. She has been blessed with a wonderful supportive family and boyfriend and admits herself she is a very lucky girl.

Highly recommended for alight read.

Also included are some great family and professional photos compliment this autobiography.

I can't believe that at such a young age, Charlotte Church has been through so much.

This book is a very insightful account into Charlotte's upbringing and family life to when she found her first big break. She also takes the reader behind the scenes of stardom and it's not all glitz and glamour at all - I felt exhausted for poor Charlotte just reading about her endless and tiring travelling to promote her music!
It's also revealing and I was a bit taken aback with the bad manners displayed by the likes of Luciano Pavarotti, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera and Pierce Brosnan. If it wasn't for their fans, these people wouldn't be where they are today - they should be grateful.

Each chapter opens with a piece of advice from Charlotte on how to cope within the entertainment industry which I found to be an insightful way to begin a chapter.

Overall, a very worthwhile read and, as Charlotte herself would no doubt say, It's wicked!
