Jenna Bush Begins Book Tour

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Jenna Bush, once known as a partying presidential daughter, is now making the rounds touting her new book.

"Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope" is about a teenage mother with HIV whom Jenna Bush met while interning with UNICEF in Central America. She says the young woman and her story changed her life.

She says Ana -- not her real name -- was infected with HIV by her mother, and both of her parents died of AIDS. Ana was raised by relatives who beat her and was molested by her grandmother's boyfriend. She ran away from home and ended up in juvenile detention. She became pregnant by her first boyfriend, who was also HIV-positive.

Jenna Bush told a bookstore audience in Annapolis, Maryland, that she was struck by Ana's positive outlook.

Bush, now 25, says she's started talking to the media because she has something to say.
