AUTUMN FALLS, DEBUT YA NOVEL FROM
TEEN SENSATION BELLA THORNE
Delacorte Press is pleased to announce the publication of 17-year-old actress, dancer, and singer Bella Thorne’s debut YA novel AUTUMN FALLS (on sale November 11, 2014 / $18.99). Thorne, best known for her roles on the hit Disney Channel show Shake It Up and in such movies as Blendedand Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, adds author to her list of accomplishments with this humorous and heartfelt novel that Seventeen.com says has “everything you could ever want: a lovable klutz for a main character, a total heartthrob, and just a touch of magic.” The novel, which tells the story of 14-year-old Autumn Falls, a high school student whose life unexpectedly changes after an encounter with magic, carries a first printing of 250,000 copies, retails for $18.99, and is available in print, ebook, and audio editions. Thorne recorded the audio edition, published by Listening Library.
With her fiery red hair, new-girl outsider status, and tendency to be a total klutz, Autumn Falls definitely isn’t flying below the radar at Aventura High. Luckily, she makes some genuine friends—but she also manages to get on the wrong side of the school’s queen bee. When Autumn vents her feelings in a journal that belonged to her late father, suddenly her wildest wishes start coming true. Is it coincidence? Or can writing in the journal solve all her problems? And if the journal doesn’t work that way, is there a bigger purpose for it—and for her?
Filled with personal elements from Thorne’s own life, AUTUMN FALLS has everything readers love and relate to: a real girl trying to find her inner strength and be the best she can be, mixed with a hint of magic and mystery and a steady stream of OMG-I-can’t-believe-that-just-happened fun.
With over 18 million followers across all of her social media platforms, Thorne’s “bellarinas” are clamoring for this debut novel, the first in a trilogy featuring Autumn Falls. The second novel in the series will be published in fall 2015. Follow Bella on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter at @bellathorne.
