Sarah Palin Reviews Bristol’s Book on Twitter

In a flurry of tweets yesterday, political figure and author Sarah Palin reviewed her daughter’s memoir.

Here’s the complete review: “Bristol’s Book: Shocking; Refreshing; Honest; INSPIRING! Perfect. Plus ‘Not Afraid of Life’ gives insight into how media can drive false narrative. Spot on! (& she’s courageous to write what she wrote, warning about decisions/consequences in encouraging way, esp for teens!)”

What book should Palin review next? In her new memoir, Bristol Palin criticized Levi Johnston and Meghan McCain. William Morrow published Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far earlier this week.

Palin also took to Facebook to explain a delay in her cross-country bus tour. She wrote: “Imagine our surprise when reading media reports today that the “One Nation Tour” has been cancelled. Why didn’t anyone tell me? Oh, wait, that’s because it hasn’t been cancelled. (Good ol’ media… you never cease to amaze!) … I wouldn’t think it to be such a slow news day that, what with numerous wars and serious economic woes concerning Americans, a bus is driving news stories today. The next leg of the tour continues when the time comes.”
