Finally Britney Spears gets to tell her own story in her own voice. Super quick read. Loved her commentary on how she was treated by the media vs Justin & Kevin.

So sad and scary the injustices forced upon Britney.

I can’t possibly give this book a rating. Was the writing good? No. But this book wasn’t about good writing or a good story. It was about Britney being free to tell her truth after decades of being silenced. I felt her pain, sadness, terror, joy, love, and passion as I read. Everyone deserves the chance to tell their own story.
