Mo’ne Davis is Writing a Memoir

Everything else you're talking about today is garbage because we now have confirmation that 13-year-old Mo'ne Davis, Little League pitching superstar (and the first female pitcher to pitch a shutout in a Little League postseason game), is writing a memoir.

Called, "Mo'ne Davis: Remember My Name," the book will be out in March 2015 via HarperCollins Children's Books.

"Why does SHE get a memoir?" you might ask if you have been paying attention to nothing I just said. (How dare you.)

Well, on top of beating the shit out of gender barriers, Davis landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated this past August, snagged spots on Time's "25 Most Influential Teens of 2014" and Harper's Bazaar's "2014 Women Who Dare" lists, threw out the first pitch at game four of the World Series, and landed in the Baseball Hall of Fame. And she started grade eight. No. Big. Deal.

"Mo'ne redefines what it means to 'throw like a girl,'" Susan Katz, president and publisher of HaperCollins' Children's Books said in a press release. "She inspires and empowers others by example and is a wonderful role model for the young and old."

IT'S TRUE. Though the book is geared towards kids aged seven-12, I'm 99.9% sure all of us should (and will!) buy it, then start a book club. Because frankly, if this isn't Girl Power, then I have absolutely no idea what it is.
