Jenna Bush Discusses Her Bestselling Book

by at . Comments

Jenna Bush's non-fiction 2007 book, Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope - the tale of a 17-year-old single mother in Panama who is living with HIV - is getting a new epilogue, and thanksfully, it's a very positive one.

"I took Ana's baby to get her HIV test," the first daughter, 26, informed a convention of young Jewish activists Tuesday at the Washington Hilton.

"She's negative," Bush revealed, as her audience burst into applause.

Jenna Bush spoke before a "Make It Matter" luncheon hosted by the United Jewish Communities - whose site described Jenna as an "international children's rights advocate and daughter of Laura and President George W. Bush.

Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope was apparently on the New York Times bestseller list, too, so you know whoever ghosted it did a heck of a job.

"I ignorantly thought when I met Ana that she would be scared or have trust issues," one of President Bush's twin daughters said, but that assumption proved wrong.

"All this anger had evaporated. She was living such a positive life," said Bush, who will wed Henry Hager in May. "It's a lesson to all of us that there are people carrying heavy burdens but who live with such optimism."
