I almost gave up on this book in the beginning and I am very glad I stuck with it. This story of Ann-Marie Walker begins with her growing up in a foster home, then back to living with her disabled mother.
Ann -Marie soon becomes pregnant with her abusive boyfriend Darius. Darius is in and out of her life, She learns of an opportunity to act in a movie while enrolled in classes for pregnant girls; Ann-Marie decides to audition and YES!!!! she gets the part.
The movie is shown at Sundance and instead of being excited for her, boyfriend/Baby Daddy Darius becomes jealous and extra mean. Nonetheless Ann-Marie perseveres and in time her voice gets louder and stronger. As her story progresses our main character matures into "becoming herself", a capable young woman. The reader /listener is left to wonder where Ann-Marie is today, what her life is like.
I am so very glad I listened to this book; I found it interesting and I really appreciated getting to know Ms. Ann-Marie Walker.

Just prior to listening to this book I had returned about 3 books because I could not get into them. With this one I listened every chance I could get. This book was mesmerizing. The story was sooo good and the narrator was great!! Some people may tend to be put off by the street language but please don't be. For the author to clean up the language would not be authentic to the story. She doesn't overdo the street language. It's not every other word. I highly recommend this book. It is based on a true story and it's quite an inspirational story of a young girl trying to do the best she can coming from a poor and disadvantaged background. She makes mistakes but she's just a teenager (and who doesn't make mistakes?) -- she makes some good decisions too.
