Hilary Duff to Write Young Adult Books

Hilary Duff will add “author” to her long line of titles this year when she releases Elixir, a young adult novel, in October through Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing!

The 22-year-old newly engaged actress will share the adventures of photojournalist Clea Raymond, according to the AP. Clea’s got a gift – her photography leads her to a place where she can prevent tragedies before they occur!

Hil will also reportedly write a nonfiction book about kids coping with divorce based on her own experiences – expect the book to be on shelves in 2012!

  • isabella

    What can she do next? Maybe design a perfume some stars are just too greedy. Duff is one of them.

  • M

    Well her acting career sucks and isn’t going anywhere so she has to try something else,.

  • duffcry

    i cant Wait!!

  • Lucas

    Go, Hilary, go *-*

  • nursesdate

    she is pretty

  • Jasmine

    I can’t wait Hilary is a business woman: actress, successful singer the only Disney star that manage to out sold her is Miley and that’s it, fashion line her fashion line “Stuff By Duff” is the most successful tween line there is, perfume and now a huge book deal. I love it and the thought process of it sound really intelligent you can tell she put a lot of thinking into it. I will definitely be buying it..

  • Kim

    WTF is she doing? Writing books is for z-listers!! DAMN! What’s next? A reality show about her life? Desperate.

  • Virginia

    I’m so sick of these actresses taking on author as their next profession. What makes them qualified to even write anything let along books? First Lauren Conrad, now this? Most likely people will eat it up- I mean Lauren Conrad’s book went to number one and all she prob wrote was her bio…if tht.

  • Ashley

    @Virginia- I absolutely agree. I really don’t understand what makes them think they can just start writing books. Cause they’re “celebrities?” I mean Lauren Conrad is a reality star and Hilary Duff is obviously panicked about becoming irrelevant. I just hope those ghost writers are making lots of money for writing this crap.

  • Lucas

    Hilary Duff is obviously panicked about becoming irrelevant? Never.
    She is writing because she wants. Hilary doesn’t need this, she’s rich, famous and a good girl.

  • teachersdatingsite

    I love her hair

  • Jasmine

    To Ashley she doesn’t need this! Hilary Duff is not struggling for money she is so rich and aside from Miley Cyrus her music was on the top of the charts!

  • Manic

    Yep, your career is dead. Flat lined. So you wh*re yourself out to any publication company you can find to write your “books.” LOL! How desperate and pathetic!!!

  • William

    whats wrong with writing a book, everybody would write one if they wanted to, and she’s lucky enough to get the chance

  • notafan


  • Seriously?

    She can write and spell?

  • why

    So because you’re a celebrity you can’t write book anymore? What Hil does is business…nothin wrong with that.

  • unbelieveable

    I see all the jealous people are out of their holes. It’s sad when u think about it, it’s Hillary’s life and she is doing something with it unlike most of the people in here

  • offtheproperty

    she is unbelievably cool and completely great and very beautiful!

  • Jen

    well at least the book isn’t about her, like Lauren Conrad’s are.

  • t

    I’m actually glad these celebs are writing books, even if they aren’t that great, it makes those kids read and that’s a great thing!

  • http://google toni

    I love Hilary Duff, she got good inputs in young adults.
    writing books is good, because sharing out of ideas and good thoughts about her experiences. She might be a good writer who know. I believe each individual have different gift. Good ideas Hil.

  • Lucy86

    Definitely a great role model.

  • Special


  • Allie


    there is something called challenging yourself, and trying something different? some people like to experiment and try different things. maybe she wants to try something new, and not just focus on acting. or maybe she has free time to write some books? i don’t understand why people always say celebrities should only stick to one thing. we’re told to work for what we want, so let her do that! the sky is the limit!

    anyways, i can’t wait for her books :) i definitely want to read them.

  • Hilary#1fan
