Justin Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette has signed with Revell to write Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom. Justin will write the introduction to the book and it will be released on September 18th.
Mallette makes most of her money managing her son’s career and volunteers to help troubled women.
Aside from discussing her son’s rise to fame, she will discuss the less sparkling times in her life like the time she attempted suicide at 17 and her struggle with substance abuse.
As is tradition with these Oprah Book Club sure bets, Mallette will discuss how becoming pregnant with Justin made her a better person despite the fact that she had to live in a shelter. The shelter that she stayed in while being 17 and Bieber bound was going to be torn down but she was able to stop that from happening. Mallette “hopes her story will inspire other women in similar circumstances. I want them to see that no matter how desperate their circumstances may be, they can have hope for a better future.”
Malette’s faith in her young son has been the focus of her life for quite some time and is very obvious in the following Full Circle interview:
