Bristol Palin Book Deal Confirmed by William Morrow

Bristol Palin has landed a book deal with HarperCollins imprint William Morrow for her memoir, Not Afraid of Life. Publication is set for this summer.

The book by Palin (pictured, via) had been rumored for weeks, and the official release calls it an “intimate behind-the-scenes look at her life.” On February 7th, the book was briefly listed on Amazon and then removed.

Check it out: “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. 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.”
