Jada Pinkett Smith is ready to share her life story.

The Red Table Talk host and actress, 51, will publish her yet-to-be-titled memoir with Dey Street Books, an imprint of the William MorrowGroup at HarperCollins Publishers, in fall 2023, PEOPLE can exclusively reveal.

In the book, Smith "chronicles lessons learned in the course of a difficult but riveting journey — a rollercoaster ride from the depths of suicidal depression to the heights of personal rediscovery and the celebration of authentic feminine power," according to a press release.

"With no holds barred, Jada reveals her unconventional upbringing in Baltimore — from the child of two addicts to a promising theatre student and a violent interlude as a petty drug-dealer — followed by a parallel rise to stardom alongside her close friend 2Pac, then falling in love with and marrying Will Smith, and a joyous embrace of motherhood."

The press release adds that the Girls Trip star explores how she was "in crisis at age 40" and "recounts the excruciating choices she was forced to make to redefine her life in every way."

"At the heart of this powerful book," the description reveals, "are two unexpected love stories, one being Jada's complicated marriage to Will Smith, the other being the one with herself."

Carrie Thornton, the Dey Street Books VP and editorial director who brokered the book deal with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), says in a statement, "The world has imposed many labels and narratives on Jada Pinkett Smith. This is down to the realities of our media landscape, but also the roles thrust upon women by culture."

"At the center of all the speculation and false stories is a woman who, like so many women, has had to reconcile her personhood with the needs of those she loves. This memoir is Jada giving the world her truth, taking readers on a journey from lost girl to woman warrior," adds Thornton. "It is my great honor to take that journey with her."

Smith's husband Will, 54, published his own bestselling memoir titled Will in November 2021, co-written with Mark Manson.
