JJJ has such a treat for our readers today — we got our hands on an exclusive excerpt from Bella Thorne‘s upcoming novel, “Autumn’s Wish”!
In the third book of her trilogy, senior year is here, and everyone has a plan—except Autumn Falls. So many crazy-important decisions lie ahead, and she’s scared to make the wrong one.
So when she receives a magical locket that enables her to travel through time (!!!), Autumn hopes she can correct all her past mistakes—with her friends, with boys—and maybe even prevent her dad from dying. But the locket doesn’t work that way.
Instead, Autumn discovers that she’s only able to visit the future—and she doesn’t like what she sees. Autumn can change her destiny . . . but what does she really want?
“Autumn’s Wish” hits shelves and wherever books are sold on July 5th, and the second book, “Autumn’s Kiss” is available on paperback June 7th.
Connor Franta released his memoir “A Work in Progress” one year ago today (April 21) and he’s thanking his fans for all the support since publishing the book.
The 23-year-old YouTuber and author took to his Twitter to write a heartfelt note.
“Exactly 1 year ago today I released a little book that impacted me in more ways than I could have ever thought possible. It’s funny how life will throw the unexpected your way and how unimaginably incredible the outcome can be,” he wrote.
Connor added, “Thank you for preordering, attending the signings, posting breath-taking photos, tweeting, reviewing and simply reading my unfinished story.”

Keke Palmer is adding author to her impressive resume.
The 22-year-old actress and singer will publish “I Don’t Belong to You: Quiet the Noise and Find Your Voice” in October. It’s described as “an inspirational memoir and self-help guide”.
“The first idea to share it through a book was more about just ‘my life,’ like a memoir, and that didn’t really excite me. It took me years to get outside of myself, and in that process I realized there was more use for those experiences than just to grow myself,” Keke told THR.
She added, “The truth that I’m no more special than you – surprise surprise! I want to be a part of my generation in a way where I am constantly reminding them of how possible it is to live our dreams. It doesn’t mean that you have to be born with a charmed life, it means that it’s what YOU make of it. After they know my “uncut” story, so to speak, I hope that they can see how many similarities we have. Therefore, there’s nothing separating them from accomplishing their goals, just as I didn’t let anything stop me from accomplishing mine. It’s about the inner-hero we all have.”
Eden Sher has written a book!
The 24-year-old The Middle star is set to publish The Emotionary: A Dictionary of Words that Don’t Exist for Feelings That Do this fall with Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers.
“When I found out Penguin wanted to make The Emotionary, I couldn’t believe I was going to get paid to be obsessive, neurotic and emotionally self-indulgent, all things I do for free,” Eden said in a statement. “I feel super apraziative* of them for giving me this platform to share my crazy with the rest of the world, and I hope this book makes others feel at least somewhat solidated**!”
*(amazed + appreciative) adj. in humble disbelief of another’s praise
**(solace + validated) adj. relieved from feeling wholly understood by another
The Emotionary is scheduled to hit shelves on October 18!

You heard right, Shawn Johnson is now a fiction writer!
The 24-year-old Olympian, and soon-to-be bride, will debut her first novel, “The Flip Side” in June!
“I am beyond excited to share ‘The Flip Side’ with teen readers! Working with Simon & Schuster on this story brought back so many amazing memories of my teenage years, training for the Olympics, and everything it entails,” Shawn shared in a statement.
Inspired by her own experiences as a fifteen-year-old Olympic gymnast, “The Flip Side” features high school sophomore Charlie Ryland and her secret quest to become one of the best gymnasts on the planet. Charlie may seem like your average high school teen—but she’s just really good at pretending. Outside of school, Charlie spends all her waking hours training and is determined to keep her double life under wraps.
“The Flip Side” will hit shelves on June 7th, just as the 2016 Summer Olympic Games are getting started in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
