Though she’ll always be brainy and beautiful Topanga to us, Boy Meets World star Danielle Fishel, now 32, is all grown up, with enough life fodder for a memoir.
Titled Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern: Tales of Calamity and Unrelenting Awkwardness (too bad Girl Meets World was already taken for the new TV show), Fishel’s memoir will be published by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Expect it on shelves in fall 2014.
What will fill the pages? It will draw ”from disastrous auditions to wedding planning mishaps and awkward red carpet moments. Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern promises to be a fun romp through Fishel’s own imperfections and mild neuroses,” according to the press release. But … what about tidbits on playing Topanga? Not to worry: “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.” Phew.
“I’m thrilled to publish someone as charmingly funny as Danielle Fishel. She has already achieved a cult following and I’m sure her book will bring her even more fans,” said Jennifer Bergstrom, Vice President, Publisher of Gallery Books, in the announcement.
Topanga Fishel added, “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. Get ready to laugh with me (or at me — that’s okay, too!).”
Fishel is set to reprise her role in the upcoming spin-off of Boy Meets World, Girl Meets World.
