More About the Author
I have gone from being Sarah Palin's second son, as she used to call me, to her favorite punching bag...little better than a pile of squirrel scat. To correct the image she's painted, and hoping I'll have decent access to my son, I'm revealing uncomplimentary information. I'm doing this so my boy, in a decade or two, will know the true story--and can feel good about his dad. It's a choice, Sarah or me.
To know how this strange mess came to be, readers need to learn who I am, where I came from, and where I'm going. My childhood in the Land of the Northern Star; my bond with the males of my family and my love for my mother and my sister--all play a part in my story. Reporting my tale makes me both laugh and cry; it is the truth.

Living in Wasilla I know for a FACT that his story is valid, accurate, and humble. My only criticism would be the minimizing of his "wild-child" high school antics---remember I live here!
The Heaths and Palins are more despicable than we imagined. The lack of parenting has been a well-known fact around town but never realized how ugly Todd really is to people. Sarah's motivation for "quitting" on all the citizens of Alaska to line her pockets was confirmed. She has been heard saying she "hated" her job but now we see how utterly lazy Sarah Palin really is.
This is a "true" review. After reading how Sarah would "rig" reviews by having friends vote or write a favorable comment under a false name I would encourage you to read the book and make up your own mind.
with conflicting viewpoints of this young man and his
relationship with Bristol Palin.
It reads like it was written by a young fellow, who I think Levi probably is. a young, fairly sincere fellow who loved the wilderness; hockey; and his family -- had a young girl friend with hopes for their future together. Her mother(sarah palin of course) all of a sudden became a "celebrity" and all their lives changed.
The book is this young fellow thinking about his last few years,
trying to defend his position against someone (Palin) who seems to be known for wanting revenge and perceiving her self as a victim- a tough position for a very young man. I admire how much he cares for his own family and at the end of the book I was left hoping he can have some quality time with his little son and be the kind of father it sounds like he grew up with- a loving, wanting the best for him, Dad. Good luck to Levi as he matures. The book gave me a better view of what life in Alaska/ the oil field, hunting, all that means to those residents.
