    One of the child stars of the Oscar-winning movie "Slumdog Millionaire" is to publish her life story.

    Transworld Publishers says Rubina Ali's book will tell the story of her life in the shantytown where she grew up.

    Danny Boyle cast 9-year-old Rubina in the film about an orphan from Mumbai's slums who wins a quiz show.

    The filmmakers set up a trust aimed at ensuring that the children who acted in the movie get proper homes and a decent education but relations have grown tense amid disagreements over money.

    Madeline Toy at Transworld Publishers said Friday that "Slumgirl Dreaming: My Journey to the Stars" will be published in Britain in mid-July.

    She said all royalties will go to Ali and Medecins du Monde, a French medical aid organization.
