One of the most controversial and celebrated young women in America, unwed mother, daughter of Sarah Palin, and Dancing With the Stars Finalist, Bristol Palin reveals the personal details of her life from her Alaskan roots, to her teen pregnancy which played out on a national stage, to how she samba-ed her way to popular culture superstardom on the most popular show on TV and how her strong Christian faith keeps her centered.

Baker & Taylor
The daughter of the former Republican vice presidential candidate shares behind-the-scenes details about her life, describing her Alaska childhood during her mother's political rise, her highly publicized teen pregnancy and her views on topics ranging from body image and the Tea Party to abortion and faith.

When her mother, Sarah Palin, became the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate in 2008, Bristol Palin was instantly propelled into the national spotlight, becoming the focus of intense public and national media scrutiny at the age of seventeen. In Not Afraid of Life, she shares with readers for the first time ever personal moments from her life—from her Alaskan roots to her pregnancy and single motherhood to her star turn on TV’s enormously popular Dancing with the Stars. This candid memoir is a heartfelt true story of a woman who is centered by her strong Christian faith and is Not Afraid of Life.

This book changed my view on Bristol from the negative one the media painted to one of respect. She dealt with her situation, which would normally frighten any girl her age, with maturity and with her faith in not only her religion and her family's bond, but also in her self.

Given the fact that pretty much every member of the Palin family are complete morons, you have to feel sorry for the ghost writer who actually wrote this.
