Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Alexander Swinton-Hunt Billie Piper - Growing Pains Book Review. Yes, I know it's ridiculous a 23-year-old writing an autobiography, but Billie Piper has packed more into her 23 years than many people do in a lifetime. In case you don't know her, Billie became a pop star at age 15.
