I absolutely loved this book. Once I started I could not put it down. Kym comes across as such a decent, warm and funny person. She is totally honest in this book and openly pours her heart out. One minute you seem to be laughing along with her, the next minute you are crying your heart out, especially the chapter where she loses her son Archie. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT !!!! This is such a warm, genuine, heartwrenching book. Go on buy it !!! Carol

Kym does not look good in this book. She comes across as a spoiled, selfish brat for most of he childhood and adulthood. As for her marriage to Jack, if she tells you once how he wouldnt go out and only watched movies she tells you a hundred times. I felt a lot of this book just babbled on and found myself skipping some bits of it.

I feel real sympathy for her losing her little boy. I know what that is like as it has happened in my own family. I just found it remarkable that the story was told with so little emotion. I also felt sorry for her siblings. It appeared that because kym seemed to have talent her parents only supported her. I did not read one word about her parents supporting her siblings such as when her sister became pregnant.

I gave the two stars simply because she was very brave to discuss her little boy who died. Sorry

I read this autobiography in just 1 day. I just could not put it down. It really is a page turner. I am the kind of person who will pick up and book and get borde after reading so much but this was brilliant. Made me cry at one point and laugh at others. I wish there were more books like this to read.

I've loved Kym Marsh on coronation street as Michelle she was just so feisty and in reality she is much more caring and laid back. She does have a fiery side but when being called fat in a reality TV show who wouldn't? Her loss of Archie, break up with Hear say, Coronation Street end clash with Mylene Klass are all explained in this great memoir.

I really like Kym Marsh from when she was in Pop stars to Hear Say and
now Coronation Street, she has never had things easy, this book really
brought a tear to my eye, this book couldn't have been easy to write
after all the heartbreak in her life, I loved this book and I would
definitely recommend.

Yes, the parts about Kym being bullied and the loss of son Archie are very sad and an awful thing to go through for anyone, however I don't think Kym comes across very well in this book at all. Firstly, she threw away the chance to finish at a lucrative stage school which was being funded by a very generous guy who wanted to help her succeed in her dream of being a star - then she got pregnant at 17 and again shortly afterwards ending up on benefits and splitting from her partner, while all the time harping on about her 'dream' of making the big-time and that she still wanted to make a career as a singer. Even in Hearsay she was causing arguments being gobby and acting like a diva, segregating herself from the others and it comes across as that she is very arrogant. Much like Cheryl Cole, if it wasn't for the lucky break of the reality pop show I'm sure she would still be a gobby mum on living off benefits.

I like kym marsh and have always thought she got a lot of bad press in the past. I was interested to read about her as she is a normal northern lass who has ended up with a great career in television.

The book is very addictive, once you start reading, you literally cant put it down. Yes kym did come from a counci estate, she did get pregnant young, she did end up on benefits.......... So what, give the girl a break. What previous reviewers failed to mention is that as soon as kym got the opportunity of being i hearsay, she was away from her children for weeks on end, working her backside off to give them a better life. I now fully understand why she ended up leaving the band, it must have been very very hard for her to do this.

She has gone from strength to strength, having her downs inbetween, eventuall landing a role in the top uk soap. The is a chapter about her losing archie, was extremely sad to read.

Overall, this book gives you an insight to who the real kym is, and after reading it, i admire her even more.
