Teen Mom 2 Jenelle Evans book cover photo

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has been talking about publishing a book for quite a while, and now we finally have the title, cover, and a release date — in July!

The book is titled Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom, and it will be published on July 25. (Click the link to pre-order your copy from Amazon now!) “Jenelle Evans shares the raw emotional stories of her youth that helped shape the woman she has become, all drawn from her childhood diary.” That’s the brief description from the publisher Post Hill Press, the same publisher that released books by Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra, and Kail Lowry. Here is the long description:

From her appearances on 16 and Pregnant and then Teen Mom 2, Jenelle Evans’s life was put on display for all to see, and all to judge. Everyone thinks they know her, but what the audience can’t see runs deeper than what is left on the editing room floor.

What of Jenelle’s complicated life before her newfound fame? An overbearing mother. Erratic siblings. A father who didn’t seem to care. Though there was no camera to capture those difficult moments, there were, thankfully, a few well-kept diaries. Join Jenelle as she tells her story through the eyes of her troubled youth, taken from her memories that were scrawled across the pages of her own diaries.

About the Author

Jenelle Evans first appeared in the reality television program 16 and Pregnant and then went on to star in the follow-up series Teen Mom 2. She is a model and an actress, but above all else, Jenelle is a mom. Originally from Pennsylvania, she now lives in Wilmington, North Carolina, with her three children.

Followers of Jenelle are well aware of her childhood diaries — she has referenced them many times. She even posted this excerpt on social media a while back:

Jenelle Evans childhood diary entry

“Omg I just sent this pic to my mom lmfao,” Jenelle wrote in the caption. “A page out of my diary back in 2004 when I lived in PA and was ‘grounded’ lol.”

We previously posted about Jenlle’s book back in 2015, including the diary excerpt above, and at the time we came up with a list of potential titles. Unfortunately — or perhaps fortunately for Jenelle — she didn’t take any of our suggestions. Here they are, including our book cover concept for the last one:

My Dramastical Life

You Seen Me With Kieffuh!

The Girl With the Leopard Tattoo


That’s Why I Got All These Feathers In My Hair, For This Book

  • Bahahaha

    Model!!!!….. Pfffff! Hahahahahahahaha!!

  • Victoria

    OMG that chin

  • TinaBelchersGroan

    The only “modeling” Jenelle has ever done is when the camera operator at the police station asks her to turn to the left or right when taking her mugshot.

    • Guest

      And the nudes Duffy took of her.

      • TinaBelchersGroan

        Oh dear Lord I forgot about those ? I don’t honestly care if someone poses nude or pulls a Farrah and does porn because that’s not the worst thing they could do but whyyyy would she ever think that letting her creepy ass boss do that would be a good idea???

          I was paid 104000 dollars last 12 months by doing an internet work and I was able to do it by w­orking in my own time f­o­r several hours on a regular basis. I applied job opportunity I found online and therefore I am thrilled that I was manage to make such great money. It’s actually newbie-friendly and therefore I am so grateful that I discovered out about it. Look out for exactly what I do… http://uanurl­.­com/fgsfgjsfg/

    • pmo

      u got that right

  • Karina

    Who would buy this? This will only be about her blaming everyone and everything for her current problems.

    • bambiglanville

      Her weird, odd, creepy “fans”.

    • Guest

      I’d actually rather read hers than any of the others.

      • Nedly Mandingo IV

        Out of all the books out on the stands and in all the libraries…wth would anyone waste their time on any of these books by these teen moms? Such a waste of time. You know they are all ghost written….you know that, right? Jenelle can’t write a book, she can’t even speak without yelling, “Dude!!!!!…” She has such a limited vocabulary, it rivals Trump’s.

        All this trick will do is whine and b- about how everyone else has done her wrong. What a yawn-fest.

        • Guest

          I obviously meant any of the other Teen Mom books.

        • IffififbutbutOkeyDoke

          More like obummer’s vocabulary. FTFY, loser.

  • Kail’s Fake Ass

    Except Jenelle wasn’t an actual teen “mom” ?

    • ChelseaHouskasEyebrows

      Not at all. That would imply she actually cared for her child.

      • pmo

        jace has a filtly mouth prob the b word

  • ChelseaHouskasEyebrows

    Should’ve been called “between my legs”, much more fitting.

    • sysmjp

      Or Read Between The Lies

    • Chu ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥

      OMG hahahaha

  • pink Glitter

    I’d actually read this

    • Brie Mode


  • pink Glitter

    There hasn’t i Ben a reason she isn’t thebway she is and this might tell

    • Chu ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥

      I grew up abused mentally, emotionally, physically and sexually but I don’t blame my parents anymore. The moment I realized I can control my life, that’s when I stopped the blame game. Jenelle needs to grow up and own up for her mistakes and let bygones be bygones. Any situation she is in NOW is by her own doing. There is no need to look in a book to see how this affected her growing up, she’s a grown woman and needs to own up for her actions.

  • Lemon lime

    She is the most stupid, mentally ill, c$nt ever. Give the attention to someone who worked hard for things, is doing something inspirational, or who actually learned from their mistakes and grew as a person. Not this worthless piglet from h-ell.

  • LoLo

    Jenelle said her strong point is she is “well spoken”. I don’t know why I continue to be surprised & disgusted by her.

  • FrontDoorMom

    She’s got the worst side profile…ever

  • Nathan’s Former Gym Membership

    Eww that picture is so unflattering lol. She looks like that McDonalds mascot crescent moon, Mack Night from back in the 80’s. She also looks like Grandpa from Hey Arnold. Chinelle should never pose from this angle again. That photographer set her up. Her forehead is so lumpy and misshapen, her chin comes down to her knees, no lips.

    • pmo

      loved mack night.

      • Nathan’s Former Gym Membership

        Me too. I remember having his toy where he rides his motorcycle

  • Ashley

    “…that helped shape the woman that she has become…” Jenelle is only a woman in age – otherwise, she’s still an immature, irresponsible, selfish brat.

  • Anna

    I’d read it if only for the laughs

  • barbinop

    I cant wake up from this nightmare!!

  • Scarlett

    I must say – the pic of that skank in the headdress is REALLY FUNNY! I wonder if lawyer Dustin did the intro…..and if UBT shared his assortment of mug shots for the centerfold. YEESH.

  • Che

    Janelle is terrible.

  • pmo

    wtf would pay money 4 this slag’s book

  • pmo

    headdress pic expression looks like someone being forced to do porn.

  • Caty P. :)

    I’m not trying to be a jerk here, but — can you really call yourself a teenage mom if your mother is actually raising your kid? It’s not like Barb just helps out here and there, she literally RAISES Jace. I’d kind of prefer to read a book from Barb’s perspective….

  • Elle

    Jenelle and Farrah make me almost physically sick. I’ll stick to Jenelle for this post. Anyone can see that Jenelle has NEVER been woman enough to stand on her own two feet & PARENT ANY of her children. She jumps from d!ck to d!ck at such a rapid pace it’s a wonder she doesn’t make her new boyfriends wear a “Hi my name is” sticker!?
    She parrots everything that Creepy Uncle Dave says. It’s ridiculous! She is so beyond stupid to build a house with someone who is riding on her teen mom money. She needs to quit having abortions and children with whoever the wind blows. It’s gross. She shouldn’t be allowed to parent a dog. Oh wait….she got a dog removed from her custody and let another one run in the road.
