Amy Winehouse's father is set to release a book about the late singer next summer.

Mitch Winehouse agreed to a book deal with HarperCollins, the publisher announced Monday.

The book, "Amy, My Daughter," will be about the singer's childhood as well as her struggles with substance abuse.

Proceeds from the book will go toward the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which helps troubled children and young adults.

Amy Winehouse was found dead at her London home on July 23. She was 27.
