When Amber Portwood debuted on MTV's hit reality series 16 & Pregnant, no one could have predicted that the teenager from Anderson, Indiana, with the dry sense of humor would go on to become one of the most controversial young celebrities in reality TV history. But soon after Amber stepped into the public eye, her life spiraled into chaos.
From her struggles with anxiety, depression, and addiction to her brutal onscreen fights with her boyfriend, Amber seemed a troubled young woman destined to destroy herself. And that was all before she shocked everyone by sending herself to prison for 17 months!
But behind Amber Portwood's shocking behavior is a story the cameras never captured. It's a story of hardship and hope, of relationships torn apart by tragedy and addiction and put back together with strength, love, and determination. After years of losing herself in a daze of sex, drugs, and depression, Amber made the decision to stand up and do whatever it took to save her life, her family, and herself.
With her trademark honesty and dry sense of humor, Amber tells the real story of how she learned to deal with the demons that nearly destroyed her. Never Too Late sends a powerful message that no matter how far down a person might fall, it's never too late to get back up and change the future.

Having been a fan of the original series and stars of MTVs 'Teen Mom' since the start, I was keen to listen to and learn more about Amber. However, I found this audiobook very disappointing. I must point out, however, that this is not Amber Portwoods fault.
Firstly, the sound quality of this audiobook is appalling! It sound like this book is being narrated from within a toilet stall. The narration is echoey and sounds like the author was too far from the microphone.
Secondly, although I am a fan of Amber Portwood, it is clear listening to this title that she is not a natural orator. She reads the book at a far too quick pace, with no regard for punctuation, stumbling over words and laughing at her own jokes. She sounds very nervous.
However, fans of the girls from Teen Mom will enjoy this audiobook and the insights it gives.
I would try another book as I am fan of Teen Mom.
As this is Amber Portwoods own story, I feel it is important that this title is narrated by herself. However, I think that for any future titles, production qualities must be improved and Ms. Portwood should be given tips or lessons on reading aloud.
