Bristol Palin has a new memoir coming out, “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far.”
The 20-year-old single mom writes in her new book of losing her virginity to boyfriend Levi Johnston on a camping trip after getting drunk for the first time on too many wine coolers.
She awoke in her tent, alone, with no memories of what had happened as Johnston “talked with his friends on the other side of the canvas.” She had vowed to wait until marriage. And she had lied to her parents about where she was going.
After that night, Palin vowed to her mother, Alaska governor Sarah Palin, that she’d abstain from sex until marriage. She continued to have sex and at 18 became pregnant.
“I’d just made a complete fool of myself and given my family the middle finger,” she says after learning Johnston was cheating on her. His side of the story will be told in his upcoming book, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs,” due for publication this fall.
Bristol’s memoir, co-written with Nancy French, is due out next week.
