Summary

In March 2022, much-loved pop star, father and son Tom Parker died from incurable brain cancer. This story is his legacy, in his own words.

A proud working-class lad from Bolton, he rose to chart-topping fame with The Wanted and even took America by storm. A loving father to Aurelia and Bodhi and a devoted husband to Kelsey, his life after pop superstardom was all about family, friends and finding new purpose.

After his diagnosis in 2020, he become a prominent campaigner for brain cancer research, appearing in the House of Commons as well as holding a massively successful concert in aid of Stand Up to Cancer in the Royal Albert Hall.

Throughout it all, Tom had hope. This inspirational memoir shows how far hope and daring to dream can carry you, no matter what cards you're dealt.

Love it, missing you Tommy P 🦋

Only a couple of chapters in and I’m loving it. It’s nice to be able to hear his story in detail from his point of view and not via the internet. Rest in Peace Tom, we love you ❤️

When all seems lost, all we have is hope x

Such a poignant and moving book. The love from all those that knew Tom really shines through as does his hope during his tough last years and the hope he has for the futures of those he loved.
We can all learn a lot from this courageous young man and learn to live in the present more and seize each day! Holding back the tears listening during the morning commute was not easy but I really enjoyed listening. Shine bright Tom, you will be gold forever xx

Beautiful and heart wrenching

Tissues at the ready, I really enjoyed Tom’s book and Ben’s narration. This book will surely help in Tom’s mission to raise awareness of brain cancer. I sobbed at the end but am really glad that I listened to this very authentic and brave memoir.
