Misty Copeland's "Ballerina Body" to Leap Into Bookstores in 2017

Misty Copeland's success streak is no where near over.

From making history as American Ballet Theatre's first black female principal dancer, to starring in the documentary "A Ballerina's Tale," to getting her own Barbie doll, to preparing for her life story to hit the big screen, Copeland is quickly proving there is very little she cannot accomplish.

Her upcoming autobiography, "Ballerina Body," will "include meal plans, exercise regimens and motivational advice for dancers and nondancers."

"This is the sum of a lifetime of experiences gained through listening to my body and finding what works for it," Copeland told The New York Times.

But, before she can publish this coveted health and fitness guide, she needs your help.
