Gabrielle Douglas really is the “girl on fire.” Fresh off of her Olympic gold medal wins, her whirlwind celebrity appearances and a mini-gymnastics performance with Alicia Keys during the MTV Video Music Awards last night, we have news that she’s got a two-book deal with HarperCollins.
Her first book will be a memoir, Grace, Gold, and Glory: My Leap of Faith, which will be out in time for Christmas. Bonus! It’ll come with a free poster.
“Of course, there’ll be a lot of stories about gymnastics, but the book will also be about how much my family and I have overcome during our journey. It hasn’t been easy. I want people to read my story and say, ‘If Gabby can do it, I can do it too. Anything is possible,’” the phenom said in a statement.
There’s no word yet on what her second book will be about.
Douglas was joined by her Fierce Five teammates at the VMAs. She also appeared this week at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC.
