Outspoken, unexpected and refreshingly honest – this is the candid memoir of Jacqui Lambie.
Jacqui Lambie has always stood out from the mainstream of Australian politicians. She’s been a tireless and highly effective campaigner for the things she passionately believes in, representing Australians who've previously had little access to the corridors of power: the veterans, the single mums, the welfare recipients, the families of ice addicts.
Her autobiography is not a political book. In fact, politics barely gets a mention until the final chapters. It's the story of her life as an ordinary working class girl from Tasmania, and her journey through the army, her enforced medical retirement after 10 years following a horrendous back injury, her battles with addiction and depression, her struggles to raise two kids, and her roller-coaster ride as a politician.
On November 14, 2017, she resigned from the Senate after it was confirmed she was a dual national by descent. She is the mother of two boys.
