Not Afraid of Life: Bristol Palin to Pen Memoir

by at . Comments

Bristol Palin has signed a deal with an imprint of HarperCollins to publish her memoir, Not Afraid of Life. It will provide "an inside look at her life."

That life has been ... well, interesting.

According to the publisher, Bristol Palin "gives readers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at her life for the first time, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid a media and political frenzy surrounding her mother's political rise."

You Da Palin!

"From becoming a single mother while still a teenager to coping as her relationship with her baby's father crumbled publicly - not once, but twice."

HarperCollins has published two bestsellers by her famous mom, Sarah Palin, the GOP V.P. candidate in 2008: Going Rogue and America by Heart.

Bristol Palin, 20, has gone on to be a celebrity in her own right, through her broken relationship with Levi Johnston, and through Dancing With the Stars.

The press release continues:

"Bristol talks about the highs and lows of her appearance on ABC-TV's Dancing With the Stars, including the aching hours of practice, the biting criticisms, and the thrill of getting to the show's finals," HarperCollins announced.

"She speaks candidly of her aspirations for the future and the deep religious faith that gives her strength and inspiration. Plainspoken and disarmingly down to earth, Bristol offers new insight and understanding of who she is and what she values most."

No mention of Gino Paoletti at all? Probably too soon.

It is unclear how much Palin will earn for the book.

Are you curious to read what she has to say?

Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with -- this isn't ideal. But I'm fortunate to have a supportive family, which is dealing with this together.
