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.

    I first heard of the name Palin back in August of 2008 when McCain announced your mother as his running mate. I was 18 at the time and sooo excited to vote for the first time. Since then I have continued to follow your mother, Sarah and am constantly inspired by how strong and courageous she is.

    Your mother is not the only one that has been an inspiration to me, you have been very inspiring as well. When I was 21 I had a baby girl. The road has not been easy and I definitely regret a lot, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. My daughter has given me the drive to better myself and get my degree. I currently attend the University of Central Florida and will have my bachelor’s degree in Social Science Education by 2014. Seeing your story has really helped me know that I’m not alone. Like you, I’m very fortunate to have a loving family who is behind me every step of the way. You are an inspiration to girls that are in similar situations. I also love the fact that you are doing everything in your power to keep young girls from making the same mistake. I follow you on facebook, read your blog, and watch your show every week. I would LOVE to win a copy of your book to read.

    Please keep doing what you are doing!

    I’m a big fan of the Palin family and all that they represent. Love watching Bristol’s new show! I hope to win because she has such a motivating and inspirational story to share!

  • Becki Meadows

    I would love to read this book!! Been a fan of the entire family!! Love watching the new TV show!! Would love to visit Alaska. Since Sarah Palin ran for President / Vice President, her and Bristol have inspired me, that as a female we can do anything we put our mind to, and stand up for what we believe in!!

  • Colleen Burke

    Hi Bristol! I enjoy watching your show on lifetime and wanted to tell you, you are doing an amazing job with Tripp! I’ve had first hand experience with your situation.My sister was also a young, single teen mom who had to overcome many obstacles and difficulties that go along with being a young mom. She had many different roles to play and without the help and love of family and friends it would’ve been a lot tougher for her. My nephew turned 6 in April and just finished Kindergarten this past June and I’m very thankful to have him in my life. No matter what the circumstances are or how it happens every child is a blessing from above and I couldn’t be more grateful that it happened. I wish you and your family the best, & look forward to reading your book!
