Bristol Palin is writing a memoir after all—daringly called Not Afraid of Life—and besides some dope on her famous mom, the tome will include a bit of dish on Dancing With the Stars and two-time Bristol heartbreaker Levi Johnston. It looked for a time like Bristol's memoir, posted briefly then yanked from Amazon.com, was just a rumor. But now publisher William Morrow has promised the book will be out this spring and will give readers "an inside look at her life," reports the New York Daily News.
The book will include details of Bristol's childhood in Alaska and her "coming of age amid the media frenzy surrounding her mother's political rise," said the publisher's statement. It will also address being a teenage single mom and Bristol's struggle to cope "as her relationship with her baby's father crumbled publicly—not once, but twice," the statement adds. The 304-page book, priced at $25.95, will also cover the "highs and lows" of Bristol's stint on Dancing With the Stars, including "the aching hours of practice, the biting criticisms, and the thrill of getting to the show's finals."
