From the red carpet, to the wedding planning process, fans will get an inside look at the life of Danielle Fishel,  best known as Topanga on the hit 90s television show “Boy Meets World,” come fall 2014.

Titled “Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern: Tales of Calamity and Unrelenting Awkwardness,” the book will recount Fishel’s life as an actress, as well as her personal life. Fishel, now 32 years old, is currently planning her wedding to Tim Belusko, who she has been dating for the last 3 years.

Fishel is also reprising her role as Topanga Lawrence on the spin-off series “Girl Meets World,” which is set to premiere next year. The show promises a reunion of Ben Savage’s and Fishel’s characters Cory and Topanga, as well as an introduction to the television couple’s daughter.

And for fans that are worried that Fishel will be different from her beloved television persona, the press release for the book reassures fans that, “as her fans and Twitter followers know, the real Danielle is just as warm, funny and down-to-earth as the character she portrayed on ‘Boy Meets World.’”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fishel’s book “promises to be a fun romp through Fishel's own imperfections and wild neuroses.”

The book is to be published by Gallery Books, who is no stranger to celebrity-penned works. The most noteworthy on their list of celebrity authors are Tim Gunn, Chelsea Handler, Stanley Tucci and Oliver Stone.

Gallery Books Vice President Jennifer Bergstrom said in a statement that she is “thrilled to publish someone as charmingly funny” as Fishel.

“Life is an incredible, and often embarrassing, journey, and I can't wait to share my experiences in ‘Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern,’” said Fishel in the announcement for the book. “Get ready to laugh with me (or at me -- that's okay, too!).”
