It was quite the year for Caitlyn Jenner—and now she's putting a pen to paper to chronicle her life-changing months. 

The reality star, producer and athlete has officially announced plans to release a memoir with the help of acclaimed journalist Buzz Bissinger—who wrote Vanity Fair's cover story on her—through Grand Central PublishingThe currently untitled project and an accompanying audio edition is tentatively scheduled for a Spring 2017 debut. 

"Things have been moving so quickly that it will be nice to slow things down a bit and take the proper time to reflect on this journey," Jenner said in a press release. "I couldn't pick a better team, in Grand Central and Buzz, to make sure this story is told with a lot of honesty and care."

In April, she sat down with Diane Sawyer to publicly confirm for the first time that she was in the process of transitioning. 

Following the widely watched interview, she garnered virtually every accolade in American media, including the ESPY's Arthur Ashe Courage Award, a Glamour Woman of the Year Award, a spot on Time's Person of the Year short list and the title of "Most Fascinating Person of 2015" granted by Barbara WaltersWith the list of newly acquired credentials, Jenner has plenty of life chapters to document in addition to six decades of athletic success and reality show ties.

While we still have over a year until the unnamed book gets a title and hits shelves, rest assured no literary stone will be left unturned. 

"I elected to do this with Caitlyn because of the opportunity to create a book that will be riveting, important and reveal all the complexities and twists and turns of her life from boyhood to transition," Bissinger said of the project in a press release. "We both agree that nothing can be left out in capturing this unique and unprecedented journey. This is her story and I am proud to play a role in telling it with grace and candor."

For one of the publishing houses' executives, Jenner's tale is one that warrants preservation. 

"Caitlyn Jenner's story is not just a compelling memoir—it is an odyssey of courage and perseverance that represents an important chapter in our cultural evolution," VP and Executive Editor Gretchen Young said in the release. "I am thrilled and honored to be working with both Caitlyn and Buzz Bissinger in bringing it to light."
