Meeting Zac Efron, visiting the set of Pretty Little Liars, and oh yeah, winning a bunch of gold medals — Simone Biles is having a heck of a year, and now she’s topping it off by writing a memoir. Our newest American hero announced the project during her stop by Ellen on Tuesday, revealing that she’s working on a book called Courage to Fall (it’s a metaphor!), which will hit stores this November. Courage will be published by Christian media empire Zondervan, and co-written by Michelle Burford, who also co-wrote fellow Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas’s book. Biles says the book will be “about my life, a little bit about my family, and then how I got to where I am.” It probably will not teach you how to do a backward salto.
