USAToday -- Singer Cissy Houston is going to remember her daughter, Whitney, in a book. And she's planning to tackle some not-so-pleasant topics including her daughter's drug problems and her marriage to Bobby Brown.

Houston has a deal (which could be worth "seven figures," reports AP) with HarperCollins for a memoir it says will reveal the "unabridged and unbelievable story" of Whitney Houston, who died in a Beverly Hills hotel bathtub in February at age 48.
HarperCollins announced Monday that the currently untitled book will be out in February.

"When I lost my daughter Nippy, the world lost one of the most beautiful voices and an extraordinarily beautiful and charitable woman," Cissy said in a statement released by HarperCollins. "We are still receiving thousands of letters each day from her fans, and I hope reading this book will provide a deeper understanding into my daughter's true story."

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, where Whitney Houston sang as a child and where her funeral was held.
