Overview

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.

    We know of Kaitlyn Lowry from her MTV reality show Teen Mom 2. She is a feisty young woman determined to do things her way. Her account of her life is heartfelt and interesting. Nothing is off limits: custody battle, a deeply troubled childhood, and her struggles with bipolar. There are many dark secrets revealed and Kaitlyn should be applauded for her bravery in telling her story.

    Fast read

    It's Kailyn Lowry's story from Teen Mom 2. She went through a lot. Some of it was difficult to read about but shes come a long way. Her experiences have made her a better and stronger person. I wish her and her family the best.

    Too young to write a memior, know it all spoiled brat who hates church and god, that sums it up. Don't waste your money, not sure who published this book, but they did not use correct punuation or grammar.

    I loved this book, I have followed her story through 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 and I learned so much about her life through her book. It was interesting to hear how being on the show and the things that come along with being on the show have effected her through out various times of her life. The way she wrote things got me hooked immediately. I think many people will be able to relate to the struggles she has overcome and be comforted in knowing they are not alone. Truly inspirational.
