Cover blurb:
No text on back cover. Inner dustjacket flaps read as follows:

A pop star at fifteen, married in Vegas at eighteen, a time traveller and actor — Billie Piper has lived more lives at 24 than most of us ever will. How does it feel to grow up so fast?

Funny, honest and life-affirming, this is the untold story of the country's most famous girl next door.

Billie Piper was born in Swindon in 1982. In her first career, starting at age fifteen, she had seven top five hit singles in five years, including three number ones. At eighteen, she married TV presenter Chris Evans in Las Vegas. She has recently appeared in BBC productions of The Canterbury Tales, Much Ado About Nothing and, most famously, as Rose in Doctor Who. She was voted Most Popular Actress at the National Television Awards in 2005 and Best TV Actress at the Glamour Awards in 2006, and won The Times Breakthrough Award in 2006. Billie lives in North London.

Cover blurb:
Funny, honest and life-affirming, this is the untold story of the nation's favourite girl next door.

'There's little doubt Billie's successfully made the difficult leap from teenybopper popstar to acclaimed actress. but what's more astonishing is that the ambitious young girl who left school without a GCSE to her name, battled anorexia and married at 18 came out of it all as a dignified, warm, talented woman' Daily Express

'Billie is a remarkable woman and for the first time lifts the lid on her life to date with astonishing honesty' The Sun

'Funny and life-affirming' Glamour

'Finally, a young star's autobiography that justifies the hundreds of pages' Daily Telegraph
