Justin Bieber's Mum Pattie Mallette To Release Memoir

07/03/2012 07:28 | Updated 06 May 2012

For those who feel Justin Bieber is a little underexposed at present, fear not: a new book written by his Mother is set to reveal even more about the pop scamp.

Pattie Mallette has signed a deal with publisher Revell Books to publish Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom, recounting her role in turning her young son into the most famous teenager in the world.

It is also due to deliver a side order of personal trauma. According to a press release from the publisher it will recount the ‘abuse and addiction’ of her young life and a suicide attempt when she was 17.

Mallette told that she hoped the book would prove inspiration to those facing similar hardships.

For his own part 18-year-old Justin, who published his autobiography First Step 2 Forever: My Story in 2010, will be chipping in with a foreword to his Mum’s book but otherwise remains focused on his own writing project.

Justin Bieber: Just Getting Started will come out in America in September, the same time as Mallette’s title, potentially sparking what could be the first Mother-Son bestseller battle in history – though please correct us if you know otherwise.

Reports that Justin’s third book – working title Justin Bieber: Let’s See What Happens Now I Can Legally Drink – is due out in 2015 remain unconfirmed at present.
