Keke Palmer is ready to share with fans the follow-up to her 2017 debut memoir, I Don’t Belong To You.

While proclaiming her Virgo tendencies, the 30-year-old actress made the surprise announcement via social media on Wednesday, April 24.

“Oh yes, the Virgo speaks. I’m not sure the next time I’ll write a book, but this seemed like the right time to put my thoughts to paper,” Palmer began in her IG caption featuring the upcoming book’s cover.

“I’ve learned so much about myself this past year and though we don’t know each other and live unique lives, I feel we experience more of the same themes than we know,” she wrote.

The Alice star says in the book that she’s a very different person than she was a year ago and that she is now the “master of me,” and encourages others to strive for the same.

“I get real; the pain, the joy, the triumph, I’m not the same person anymore,” Palmer explains. “I look at everything differently and that’s okay, we are the first generation with documented evidence of us growing in real time. The fear and awareness of that can be quite crippling, but I’m not afraid to check the temperature in every era. Last year I was a big boss, this year… I’m the master of me and you’ve gotta be the master of you.”

More than anything, Keke says she wants this unadulterated look at her life to let readers know they aren’t alone and we face similar battles.

“This book is my honest revelation of how I’m staying afloat, and my hope and desire is to not even necessarily ‘help’ readers but to share with them,” she told People. “Sometimes we all feel alone but we aren’t. And even those of us who seem to be doing well still struggle.”

Master of Me is set to be released on Nov. 19 with a special pre-order available on Palmer’s official website.
