Books Read in 2009: Chris Stevens – Billie Piper: A Biography

From the Cover:

"I had an amazing time in my teens but it was also pretty horrible.  That's why I was so happy to walk away and reinvent myself"

Summer 1998: Billie, aged fifteen, explodes on to the celebrity scene as the youngest artist ever to debut at number one.  A record breaker and a rule-breaker – from the start, her chart triumph marked the beginning of a roller-coaster journey that continues to this day.  From her failed marriage to Chris Evans to her hugely successful switch to acting, Billie has experienced a lot in her blistering career – and now the highs and lows of her remarkable life are laid bare in this, the first biography of the Doctor Who darling.

Following Billie as she grows up in the harsh glare of stardom – achieving exceptional acclaim in her chosen fields, but suffering from health scares, tabloid rumours and even death threats – Chris Stevens takes us on an emotional expedition, revealing Billie and her responses to her extraordinary experiences. 

Billie Piper gets up close and personal with this pop-princess-turned-sci-fi-sweetheart, who grew from her child-star roots to emerge successful, sassy and superbly down-to-earth.

I bought this remaindered, costing 50p, and definitely got my money's worth!  I was curious about Billie – I remember the dread I felt at hearing she was going to be the new Dr Who companion, which she was more than capable of!  And I suspect she would make a good friend and drinking buddy.  It goes to show, never trust what you read in the papers!
