Hilary Duff Writes New YA Novel

Lizzie McGuire–oops, we mean Hilary Duff–is the latest former Disney actress to release a book. Published by Simon & Schuster, “Elixir” is the first in a series of YA novels that combines elements of romance, mystery, and adventure. 

Clea Raymond is the heroine of the story, a young female photojournalist whose father suddenly disappears.  Soon after, images of a man she has never met or seen before begin appearing in photos she has already taken.  To find her father and the mysterious man, she goes on a globetrotting journey to discover a long-kept secret.

In an interview with Associated Press, Duff revealed, “I love reading young adult books even though I’m a little older than the set demographic for YA.  I love adventure. I relate to girl characters, love, finding yourself and breaking out of the mold that people put you in.”

The actress/singer (and now author) wrote the novel while she was planning her August 2010 wedding.  Now that she’s married, Duff will be focusing on the sequel to “Elixir.” Read an excerpt from “Elixir” here.
