A longtime friend and former personal assistant to Michael Jackson is promising to tell all in a new book.

Frank Cascio has a deal with William Morrow for the memoir, "My Friend Michael." The book is scheduled for this fall, the publisher announced Tuesday.

According to Morrow, the book will offer an "uplifting and definitive" account of Jackson, who died in 2009, while noting the "terribly scarred" experience of fame.
