In this personal memoir, Bristol Palin opens up for the first time ever, taking readers behind the scenes in her life, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise; from becoming a single mother while still a teenager to coping as her relationship with the baby’s father crumbled publicly. Through all of these ups and downs, Bristol learned how to face her challenges head-on with courage and grace.

In Not Afraid of Life, Bristol speaks candidly of her aspirations and of the deep religious faith that gives her strength and inspiration. Plainspoken and disarmingly down-to-earth, Bristol offers new insight and understanding of who she is and what she values most.

    " I found this a really good auto biography, explained a bit more behind the scared 5 month pregnant girl we all saw during the election. Clearly written in the unfinished tongue of a 19 year old girl, but nonethless a compelling tale of perseverance and being forced to grow up. "
