Most people only know her as Justin Bieber's mom, but Pattie Mallette has had an incredible journey of her own. Many people have heard of her son's rags to riches triumph. A few know she was a teen mom who had to overcome a drug and alcohol addiction. Even fewer know the rest of her story.

Now, for the first time in detail, Pattie shares with the world the story of a girl who felt abandoned and unloved. Of a teenager who made poor choices. Of a young woman who attempted suicide and could hardly bear to believe that God would ever care for her. One who messed up, got pregnant, and got a second chance. Every reader will find themselves somewhere in Pattie's painful journey of redemption. They will be encouraged by her example that what was once broken can become whole.

Pattie's story will inspire readers to believe that even in the darkest of places, there's always hope. For those who feel unlovable, there's always love. And for those who believe they're a lost cause, there's always room for another chance.

Nowhere But Up
October 3rd, 2015
This is a story about a young woman who, at a young age, endured a life of abuse and all the pain and suffering that goes along with that. Then the hope and restoration that was found in God was given, along with healing for a broken heart. Thank you, Pattie, for sharing your story, for letting God work through you to bring hope to those in pain and who feel alone in their suffering. Your son is blessed to have a mum like you, and a family to help you love him! God has a plan for him too, to bring joy and healing to a world that is desperately needing it.

I found this book really interesting, even as a non-hardcore believer fan. I felt it was a tad too religious, as I was more important in Pattie's story instead of reading bible passages, but at the end of the book, I had more respect for her & I love what she stands for & continues to do for young mothers/teens :)

I found this book to be very heart warming. Understanding and relating to the hardships and blessings of being a single mom, and having the powerful belief in a greater being for help and guidance in such emotionally challenging situations, gives hope to any of us that we are not alone. Even at our loneliest times.
