Mariah Carey will release her memoir, The Meaning of Mariah, in September.

The book, which will be out through Andy Cohen Books (an imprint of Henry Holt & Company), will detail her life beginning with her childhood to her rise to fame as a chart-topping singer to everything else that went on in her life, including a much-publicized meltdown in the early 2000s.

“This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival and my songs.  Unfiltered.” Carey said in a statement on her social media accounts. “Writing this memoir was incredibly hard, humbling and healing.  My sincere hope is that you are moved to a new understanding, not only about me, but also about the resilience of the human spirit.”

The book is available for preorder now.

Last month, Carey’s debut album turned 30 and we counted down her biggest number-one hits.
