Kailyn Lowry is the feisty, unapologetic, tattooed beauty whose determination to raise her son on her own terms has been documented on MTV’s critically acclaimed, hit series Teen Mom 2. Across five seasons, fans have watched her grow from a vulnerable, pregnant teen into a fiercely independent young mother. Through the breakup with the father of her child and the ensuing custody battles, her struggle to come to terms with her troubled childhood, her diagnosis with bipolar disorder, and relentless online bullying, Kailyn has faced it all with her head held high and her spirit intact.

But there is more to her story than what has been seen on television. In a moving effort to finally put the past behind her, Kailyn shares her troubled, often painful story and, for the first time, reveals the dark secrets she has so closely guarded. Guided by the single principle of helping other young girls like her, she takes the reader behind the scenes, writing candidly about her desperate stay at a homeless shelter to qualify for a program that would provide a safe home for her son, breaking her silence on the question of her sexuality, and sharing the traumatic sexual experiences that have left her deeply scarred.

Pride Over Pity is a raw, brutally honest, and ultimately inspiring account of a young woman’s resolve not only to survive but to succeed.

  • Good read!

    From aep88
    If you like teen mom then you’ll like this book. I think Kail is ungrateful and selfish but this book was written before all that and shows the bigger picture

  • Awesome read

    From Cyndau
    What a great story about kailyns life. It makes u realize why she reacted on the show the way she did at times. A great read. Can't wait to see her and the girls on the next teen mom to see how much they have grown as a parent and how much the children have grown as well 😄
  • A Must Read!

    From Stroniha
    Reading this book gave me a full view at what Kailyn Lowrys life is all about. When watching her on Teen Mom, you only see bits and pieces of what's going on in her life but reading this book gave me more. Kailyn is such an inspiring person. I love everything about her and how she is not afraid to be who she wants to be and has to be for herself and her family. Thank you so much Kail for sharing your story! ❤️ xoxo.
  • Unexpectedly fantastic

    From Karmaa_xo
    I read this in one sitting. I am not a teen mom and I have never been pregnant; I've always been a stringent advocate of birth control. Kailyn's story reiterates many of the things I believe young women should hear. Want better, do better, BE better.
  • Amazing

    From SnowFlake1350
    I have friends who are teen moms or had a tough family life and seen it work out for them. I feel like Kailyn is an amazing example of the why being a teen mom or having a rough family isn't a death sentence and I am so proud of her for having the courage to use her experience to give a voice to all of the adversity she has overcome. I hope other girls - especially teenagers - will read this and receive inspiration and courage from her words and know they can also be ok.
  • Poorly written.

    From samnemeth
    I found this book to be poorly written. It jumped all over the place and the author repeated things multiple times. I was very interested in kail's story and think she is an inspiring person I just wish the person writing her story had done a better job. Keep up the amazing work kail.
  • worth the read

    From katesjo
    good book if your a teen mom fan
  • Honest, real and not hidden secrets.

    From SMILE1273
    I'm not gonna lie, I've been a kail fan since the first episode of teen mom 2 - her story was always one that was real and true. I could always see that her hard moments were ALWAYS shown and the best moments were minimized - it was a tv and all. Kail has proven to be a great mom and this book just shows that even more. Kail is honest, real and candid in her life and the situations she has been in. This story is inspiring and applauded for the acknowledgement of life's hardest day and how to overcome that successfully. If your a fan of kail from teen mom 2, then you'll love the inside scoop of this book. Thanks to kail for giving us the chance to see more in depth into your life.
