On her hit television show, Tiny and Toya, Antonia 'Toya' Carter seems to be living the good life. She has a beautiful home, good friends, and is pursuing her dreams. In spite of appearances, hers has been a life of peaks and valleys. Abandoned by her parents as a child, Toya was passed from one family member to another as her mother sank deeper into drug addiction. Feeling unloved and unwanted, Toya fell into the arms of fifteen-year-old rising musical star, Dwayne Michael Carter, known these days as rapper, Lil' Wayne. She ended up pregnant at the tender age of fourteen.
In Priceless Inspirations, Toya takes the reader on a journey through the pain of a teenage mother who struggles to raise a child while still a child herself—all without the benefit of guidance from her own mother. Using the words she recorded in journals she wrote as a teen and the wisdom she has gained in the years since, Toya bares her personal struggles. She poignantly uses her experiences to offer young women real and heartfelt understanding and advice about sex, relationships, motherhood and growing up.
