Hilary Duff to Release Her First Novel, ELIXIR, This Fall

Hilary Duff will release her first novel, Elixir, this fall, and the cover has just been revealed. Here is more information about the book, from Pink Is The New Blog:

Hilary Duff has signed a deal with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers to publish a young adult fiction series. The first novel in the series, Elixir, will be published in hardcover in October 2010. Simon & Schuster also secured world rights for a nonfiction title to be published in spring 2012. The nonfiction book will be about the challenges faced by children of divorce, an issue that has touched Hilary’s own life. Simon & Schuster says Hilary Duff’s Elixir series “combines the overpowering allure of a dangerous love triangle with thrilling international adventure.” Here is a description of the book from the Simon & Schuster press release.

Clea Raymond is a talented young photojournalist who has spent her entire life in the spotlight as the daughter of a Washington politician and a renowned surgeon. Haunted by the strange appearance of a mysterious young man in her photographs, Clea travels the globe with her best friends, Rayna and Ben, in a race against time to unravel a centuries-old mystery that could unlock the key to her soulmate’s true identity and the secret of her father’s disappearance-and ultimately save all their lives.

I don’t want to sound like a grumpy old lady, but back in my day, popstars didn’t write books. They might have had a clothing line or a perfume, like Debbie Gibson’s Electric Youth, but they left the writing to actual authors. Eh, I guess I shouldn’t judge. Lauren Conrad’s young adult book was very successful and I have no doubt that Hilary Duff’s will be as well.
