American gymnast Gabby Douglas captured hearts and gold medals with her performances at the Summer Olympics. Now she'll be telling her story (with the help of a co-writer) in a memoir due out by Christmas.
The book, titled "Grace, Gold and Glory: My Leap of Faith," will be published by Zondervan, the predominantly Christian publishing arm of HarperCollins.
Douglas, 16, was the all-around individual gold medal winner as well as being part of the U.S. squad that won the team all-around. She was the first African American woman to win the individual all-around.
It wasn't just winning that made Douglas one of the most popular figures in the summer Olympics. Her charm and determination were impossible to miss.
