YouTuber Lilly Singh is going literary with her first book, How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life, set for 2017.

Singh announced the book on The Tonight Show, and followed up with a video on her channel that depicts Singh as a boxer struggling to get back up, a parallel to her evolution from depression to YouTube stardom.

The video ends with Singh as a warrior, before emerging from the flames with a book in hand, which has been in a fan’s hands all along. Autobiographic book trailers don’t often get the full Hollywood treatment, but Singh isn’t one to follow the mold.

The book, published by Random House imprint Ballantine Books, is now available for preorder
