Bristol Palin to pen down intimate memoir

Bristol PalinUS glamorous politician Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol Palin has signed a deal to pen a memoir which her publisher describes as the first "intimate, behind-the-scenes look at her life". The book, ‘Not Afraid of Life’, will be published this summer, publisher William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins, has said, declining to say how much it was worth. In the book, "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". Portions of the book will also deal with the 20-year-old single mother’s on-and off romance with the father of her child, Levi Johnston, and her stint on ABC’s TV show ‘Dancing with the Stars’.

"Plain-spoken and disarmingly down to earth, Bristol offers new insight and understanding of who she is and what she values most," the statement added. Bristol made headlines last year when she reached the finals of ‘Dancing with the Stars’, in which she ended in third place. She’s also a paid speaker for organisations which support teen abstinence from sex before marriage.

She also appeared last year on her mother’s television show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”.

Sarah, the former Alaska governor and the Republican vice-presidential candidate in 2008, is a leading voice in the conservative Tea Party movement and is weighing a run for US president in 2012.
