Woman in acid hoax writes a book

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A troubled Vancouver woman who admits she damaged her own face with drain cleaner and then made up a story about being attacked has written a book about her experience.
The Columbian reported that Bethany Storro is scheduled to talk about her book on Monday morning on ABC-TV's "Good Morning America."
She co-wrote the book, "Facing the Truth," with Portland burn survivor Monica Krueger. The book was released earlier this month.
Storro's story attracted national attention after she was found sitting on a curb in downtown Vancouver in August 2010, her face damaged by a caustic substance. She told police that she had been attacked by a stranger. Detectives were suspicious about her story from the beginning, but it took days of investigation before she admitted to making up the story.
