Jenna Bush book topic: Single mother with HIV
« on: March 06, 2007, 03:34:39 PM »


NEW YORK (AP) -- First daughter Jenna Bush is writing a nonfiction book for young adults, "Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope," that will center on a 17-year-old single mother who is HIV positive.

Based on her time working for UNICEF, the book will be published this fall by HarperCollins.

"I have been inspired by my work with adolescents in Central and South America," Jenna Bush said in a statement released by her publisher on Tuesday.

"These young people have faced extreme hardships and exclusion but are strong in spirit and have an incredible will to succeed. Through their stories, it is my hope to motivate young Americans to increase their awareness of other young people around the world: to learn about the challenges they face, how they triumph over adversity, and to become involved in helping them."

Financial terms were not disclosed, although bidding had reportedly topped $300,000. Some of the author and publisher proceeds will be donated to the U.S. fund for UNICEF.

Bush, 25, has been a UNICEF intern since fall 2006, working in Argentina, Paraguay and Panama, where she is now teaching at a shelter.

"We were very moved by Jenna's passion for this project," Susan Katz, president and publisher of HarperCollins Children's Books, said in a statement. "Her message in this book is about hope, involvement and inclusion, told through one teenager's story of survival and strength."

I'd totally nail that.  If she'd like to become an HIV+ single mother tell her to hit me up!

in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
RIDE!!!

   I'l bet that her father must be rolling over in his grave due to his daughter's conversion to doing all those nasty things that liberal-minded people do: Help others. Oh, wait! He's not dead... Kinda' hard to tell most of the time :) Kudos to her for her work, even though I don't think very much of her father, either as president, or as a fellow human being.Maybe there is hope after all...

   Capt.Carl (who is always ready to find a little hopein the unlikliest of places)

Modified to add some stuff I forgot;
    I truly am impressed with some of the things that this young lady has done so far. It always makes me feel good when I see any person her age doing something for the larger good, rather that the "get rich quick, or die trying" mentality that seems so prevelant these days. It really does give me a little more hope, I wasn't trying to sound facetious in that respect, in the first part of this post.

I knew there was a reason I always wanted to get wasted with her.

Benj, I think after her local spotlight she's learned a valuable lesson:  public people should get wasted in private. It almost worked for her Pop!

I thought she was there to scout out land deals for her dad so when he leaves office he can exit the mess.
Did they ever get her bag back ?
