Levi Johnston, the young Alaskan who impregnated Dancing with the Stars finalist Bristol Palin before the 2008 election cycle, will emulate his baby mama and pen a memoir.

According to Us Weekly, the revealing book will be titled Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs and will hit bookstores this fall, published by Touchstone Publishing.

Johnston, who posed for Playgirl in 2009, reportedly plans to shed light on former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her daughter, his ex-fiance Bristol.

“Levi is going to talk about everybody, including Sarah Palin, and the rest of the family. Bristol too,” Johnston’s manager Tank Johnson told RadarOnline. “The book will have good stuff. He isn’t leaving anything out.”

Johnston reportedly hasn’t seen his son, 3-year-old Tripp, very much lately. Late last year, Palin complained that Johnston hadn’t asked to spend time with his toddler in over five months. The reason for this absence, manager Johnson says, is that “Bristol is being Bristol.”

The memoir will include photographs, exclusive stories, and personal anecdotes about Johnston’s relationship with Palin, whose own book, Not Afraid of Life, is slated for a June 21 release. Only time will tell whether Tripp’s mom or dad produces the more sought-after memoir.

Johnston is planning a Las Vegas excursion for his upcoming 21st birthday. Us Weekly reports he’ll celebrate at Chateau Nightclub & Gardens on May 6.
