    Whitney Houston's mother Cissy Houston has agreed a deal with publishing house HarperCollins to release a memoir about her late daughter, who died in February at the age of 48. The book will tell Whit's true story so it's a tell-all. It will focus on the dark and the light of Whit's life.

    Cissy Houston says in a statement, "When I lost my daughter… the world lost one of the most beautiful voices and an extraordinarily beautiful and charitable woman. In sharing our story in this book, I hope to give her fans something to treasure, the way we all treasured Whitney. We are still receiving thousands of letters each day from her fans, and I hope reading this book will provide a deeper understanding into my daughter’s true story."

    A HarperCollins rep told The Washington Post that Cissy "will tell the unabridged and unbelievable story of her daughter's life as well as her own, addressing Whitney's brightest and darkest moments while helping fans around the world understand the complexities of this extraordinary star who died much too soon. Ultimately, Cissy will go behind the headlines to show the true, human side of this strong, successful yet complicated musical icon… along with the pain and heartbreak of a grieving mother as she struggles with impossible loss."

    The book, currently untitled, is due in February, which would mark the one-year anniversary of Whit's death.
