   schema:description ""The moment that Jade Goody stepped into the Big Brother house, her life changed forever. As soon as the blonde, bubbly dental nurse from south London opened her mouth on national TV, she secured her place as the unofficial winner of the show’s third season. The glitz and glamour of Jade's sudden fame was a far cry from the real life drama of the estate where she made her start. Brought up caring for her disabled mum at an age when most kids are looking after their dolls, Jade didn't have an easy childhood. With her dad in prison and her mum struggling to cope, she had experienced more by the time she started high school than most people do in their whole lifetime. Now, over six years after her unforgettable exit from the Big Brother house, she remains a famous reality star, her warmth, enthusiasm, and dizzy exterior having endeared her to millions of people. Recently diagnosed with cervical cancer while taking part in India's BB-style show, she has had to face the toughest battle of her life in the full glare of the national media. A wonderful mom with inspirational dedication, Jade is determined to give her boys, Bobby and Freddy, the upbringing she never had. There have been many trials and tribulations along the way and Jade is the first to admit that she has made some terrible mistakes, but with brutal honesty she refuses to gloss over the struggles and errors of her past. She speaks candidly about the time she spent having therapy and tells all about her past relationships and the trauma of her recent diagnosis. Packed full of witty anecdotes and heart-rending tales, all told with Jade's usual humor and unique turn of phrase, this remarkable book is by turns funny, moving, and disarmingly honest. A frank autobiography, with no detail spared, it reveals the real Jade Goody, up close and personal"-- Book Jacket."@en ;
