Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 19) — Host and actress Maine Mendoza is already taking over almost all media platforms, but now she is venturing into a new one - books.

The social media star revealed on her Facebook page that her autobiographical book, "Yup, I Am That Girl," will be released on October 26.


According to publishing company Summit Media, "Yup, I Am That Girl by Maine Mendoza 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."

Dubsmash is a mobile application that allows users to dub famous songs and lines from shows to be posted on different social media platforms.

Mendoza shot to fame in 2015 when she was cast as Yaya Dub in one of the segments of "Eat Bulaga," where she was eventually paired up with actor Alden Richards, prompting the formation of their loveteam AlDub.

"From her family life and growing-up years to her showbiz journey and life's hopes and dreams, Maine dishes heartfelt truths about herself in this book, written in conversational prose with jokes generously thrown in-as you'd expect from the lovably kengkoy star," Summit Media added.

Since her stint in the noontime variety show, the 22-year-old artist has starred in numerous television shows and three movies.

Meanwhile, international authors Lang Leav and Michael Faudet expressed their support for Mendoza.



In 2015, Richards has also released his own autobiographical book titled "In My Own Words."
