Attention, Gleeks!

Lea Michele has just landed her first book deal, for a memoir titled Brunette Ambition

The book will be "part memoir, part how-to and part style-guide" and will chronicle Michele's life "from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television," she said in a statement.

The Glee actress explained the inspiration behind her upcoming how-to manual, which is slated to hit bookstore shelves next spring.

"There wasn't a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today," she said.

"But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm, and work hard to make your dreams come true." 

Michele will write Ambition for the Harmony Books imprint of Random House's Crown Publishing Group.
