Bristol Palin, the oldest daughter of Sarah Palin, will write about her life in "Not Afraid of Life," a book scheduled for release this summer. According to a press release from her publisher, William Morrow, the single mother and "Dancing with the Stars" celebrity will share with readers "intimate behind-the-scenes look at her life for the first time."
The 20-year-old Palin will write about everything "from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise" to "becoming a single mother while still a teenager to coping as her relationship with her baby’s father crumbled publicly – not once, but twice."
Palin will also write about "her aspirations for the future and the deep religious faith that gives her strength and inspiration."
