    Bieber has agreed to write the foreword for the book titled Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom.

    The tome, according to publisher Revell, will chronicle Mallette's troublesome past involving abuse, addiction and a suicide attempt at 17. She later became pregnant with Bieber when she was 18.

    Mallette says she wants her story to reach those who have experienced similar issues.

    "I want them to see that no matter how desperate their circumstances may be, they can have hope for a better future," Mallette said in a statement.

    The book is scheduled to be released Sept. 18.
