Jennifer Lopez has book deal for memoir on world tour

Jennifer Lopez's latest project is a story of "True Love."

The entertainer has an agreement with Penguin Group (USA) for a book, her first, about her "cathartic" 2012 world tour. The publisher announced Monday that the book will be called "True Love."

The memoir will focus on a two-year period when she faced "one of her life's most defining periods," the publisher said, according to Publisher's Weekly. During that time, she "confronted her greatest challenges, identified her biggest fears, and ultimately emerged a stronger person than she's ever been."

Lopez said working on the project was a "deeply cathartic, personal, and vulnerable experience." She added, "If [the book] could touch even just one person then it would honestly become one of the most fulfilling endeavors of my life."

It will come out in English and Spanish and will be released through Penguin's Celebra imprint on Oct. 29.

According to Celebra, the book will be a "diary" in which Lopez confides her greatest fears and how she overcomes them.
