Television and internet personality Maine Mendoza is launching her autobiographical book, Yup, I Am That Girl.
The announcement was made on her official Facebook account.
This will be Mendoza’s debut in the print industry as an author, her latest venture following successful stints in movie, television, Internet, and music.
Yup, I Am That Girl is “a book which reveals the real story of the kengkoy newcomer who cemented herself as Pinoy showbiz’s sweetheart in 2015 thanks to a few Dubsmash videos.”
Written in conversational – and humorous – prose, Mendoza shares details of her family life, years of growing up, her fairy tale-like showbiz journey, and life hopes and dreams.
Ahead of its official launch on October 26, the limited copies made available for purchase by local book store chain National Book Store was sold out in less than four hours.
#YupIAmThatGirl is already sold out in these branches. Please watch out for additional stocks coming to more branches soon. 🙂
