Will you read Bristol Palin’s autobiography?
She’s barely old enough to vote and she still can’t walk into a Las Vegas hotspot and order her own Cosmopolitan, but at 20 years young, Bristol Palin’s convinced the folks at HarperCollins that she’s lived just long enough to share her life story.
Book buzz for Bristol first began Feb. 8, when listing for the book briefly appeared last month on Amazon.com and on an online HarperCollins spreadsheet. Weeks after the Web first started chatting about it, the book deal for America’s Most Famous Teen Mom is now a done deal. Bristol, the daughter of former Alaska governor and the GOP’s 2008 Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has inked an agreement with William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins to publish Not Afraid of Life — a memoir with “an inside look at her life.” The publisher has already printed two best-sellers penned by Bristol’s mom: Going Rogue and America by Heart.
“Bristol 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 the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise; 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,” Morrow said in a press release on Tuesday.
So what can we expect from a tell-all penned by a 20-year-old? Behind the Scenes Gossip about Dancing With The Stars? Dish about being pregnant on prom night? More tales of the ill-fated romance with “baby daddy” Levi Johnston?
Morrow breaks it down for us:
“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. 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.”
Palin’s Not Afraid of Life arrives on booksellers’ shelves this summer. Will you pick up a copy?
