VANCOUVER, Wash. -- The Vancouver woman who burned her face with drain cleaner and claimed to have been attacked is writing a book about the hoax called Facing the Truth.

The Columbian reports Bethany Storro wrote the book with Portland-area co-author Mona Kruger. A news release says the book will take the reader through a maze of mental illness to uncover the history leading up to the tragedy.

Storro attracted national attention in August 2010 when she said a stranger threw a cup of acid in her face. She accepted donations from sympathetic people before she admitted to detectives she had made up the story.

Storro pleaded guilty to making a false statement to a public official and was sentenced to community service and ordered to continue mental health treatment.
