Book Giveaways: “Not Afraid of Life” and Many More!

While I was watching my Washington, DC book signing for “Not Afraid of Life,” it made me realize how many people were inspired by my story.  Thanks for all the notes, Facebook messages, and e-mails of support!

This month, the SixSeeds Faith and Family Channel is giving away some “summer beach reads,” and they asked me to participate.  The way it works is simple.  Just leave a comment below this article and I’ll randomly select a person to receive their free copy of my book!

Here’s a description of my book from

Bristol Palin lived the life of an average American teen. She loved being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and focusing on schoolwork and sports. But when her mother became the Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008, Bristol’s world changed forever. She was instantly propelled into the national spotlight, becoming the focus of intense public and national media scrutiny at the age of seventeen.

In this personal memoir, Bristol opens up for the first time, taking readers behind the scenes of 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—not once, but twice. Through all of these ups and downs, Bristol learned how to face her challenges head-on with courage and grace, traits she put to good use as a contestant and finalist on Dancing with the Stars.

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.

      Would love to read this book !!!

    • Ashley

      Hey there again. I’m Ashley, 17, from Tx, and I would love to get a free copy of your book. You inspire me. You’ve taught me to never give up and keep smiling no matter what, to be happy and go on with life no matter how miserable people try to make your life. You’re pretty and a very strong person. I don’t think I would be able to be a good mom like you at a young age. I enjoy watching your show and i’m looking forward to the next episode. Trig is so cute. Take care. I hope I get one. :)

      I think Bristol is a very positive influence in young people’s lives. The commercial she did about avoiding teen pregnancy where it showed her in an empty apartment with Tripp I think was a big eye opener. I was a teen mom. I was a single teen mom. I worked 2 jobs. Its been ten years and I am now married with two children. I think that alot of the youth today could really learn from Bristol. I see alot of those teen mom shows where the moms’ are out looking for boyfriends and partying. I don’t remember enough time in the day to go on a date not to mention party. I think Bristol has a wonderful head on her shoulders and Tripp is VERY lucky!! If I don’t win the book, I am going to try and buy it anyway.

        i couldnt agree more with what you said about her being a positive influence.

  • Larry Lease

    Not Afraid of Life is an incredible story of triumph, and courage to stand up against wrong doers. I listened to the story via audiobook. It will make an incredible movie someday.

My niece was in your situation and she rose to the top and has a great almost 4 yr old son. Baby dassy not involved whatsoever nor is his parents. you were raised with the strength and wisdom to succeed. Keep teaching your son the right ways and you will be just fine. Best of luck to you and bless you and Tripp.
