Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas isn’t 18 yet, but she’s already churning out the memoirs like a boss.  Douglas is preparing to  publish Raising the Bar, a follow-up to her  best-selling memoir Grace, Gold & Glory: My Leap of Faith, on April 30, the publisher Zondervan said in a release. According to Reuters, the book will offer a behind-the-scenes look into Douglas’ life, including color photos, personal stories and details on the athlete’s present-day life — from walking red carpets and appearing on TV shows such as The Vampire Diaries while also making time for friends, family and training. “Raising the Bar explores what it’s like to be an everyday teen with a not-so-everyday life,” Zondervan’s release  said. Zondervan specializes in Christian-oriented books under the HarperCollins division. Since the 2012 London Olympics thrust the gold-medal gymnast into the public eye, Douglas has appeared at the Democratic National Convention, the MTV Video Awards, on the cover of Time magazine and on special-edition boxes of cornflake cereal.
