Old Before My Time: Hayley Okines’ life with progeria‘The book is written in such way that it made me feel part of the story, part of her life. This book brought many emotions to me, sometimes made me laugh, sometimes my eyes got wet but in general it was a cute and nice reading [experience].’ John on Amazon
I recommend this book to those who watched the documentary about Hayley, or any people who are just interested in her life. This book is a very interesting read and there are pieces written by her mother in this too which gives you an insight of the mother’s feelings and thoughts.
This book was very heartwarming, but also very informative. I knew absolutely nothing about Progeria, but I can say I do now. I think Hayley is very brave and I hope she continues to be so. Thank you Hayley and Kerry for being so honest so that other people can gain knowledge.
Loved this book couldnt put it down after watching hayley on tv from the start i always said she should write a book cause she always writting in her book on the tv prog about her life so on the last show she said she was doing one i couldnt wait to read it after reading it it makes you think on how silly we can be at times moaning about a cold etc just think there is always someone out there worse off but with hayley have we ever seen her moan no hayley you are a star bless you 🙂

Nice message from Chelle’s review of the Kindle edition of Old Before My Time on Amazon: ‘Life may not always hand you the cards you want, it’s how you handle them that matter and make the most of what you have got.’

This was by far the best Christmas present for me this year, what an eye opener. Told by Hayley and her mum, an honest account of life with progeria. Funny in parts especially as Hayley is so open and honest about everything. Hayley and her mum are like a double act!!

This book is truly inspirational. I loved it. Bought it after watching her programme. Brilliant. Well written with Hayley and her mum Kerry’s different chapters and perspectives.
Both are greatly inspirational. Buy this book, you won’t regret it! I wish all the family all the best for the future!
This book was so much better than expected. I have followed Hayley since the first documentry. The book clearly tells her story and explains the medical issues behind progeria. I was hooked from page one.and I particularly like you get Kerry (her mother) and Hayleys views on different topics. Living in Kent this is so close to home and truely inspirational.
