Lauren Conrad will release her debut novel later this year. L.A. Candy, the first in a series of three young adult novels the MTV reality personality is writing for HarperCollins, is all set to arrive on booksellers’ shelves June 16.
The trilogy will follow the adventures of a teenage girl who unexpectedly becomes the subject of a popular unscripted series after moving to Los Angeles. Sound familiar? It should, the L.A. Candy series is loosely based on Lauren’s life as star of MTV’s Laguna Beach and later the wildly-successful The Hills.
In an entry on her Official MySpace Blog Monday, The Hills star wrote:
The books will be loosely inspired by my own experience and are definitely influenced by my own life. Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life, but it is in no way calling anyone out…I’ve always loved books that I could lose myself in, ones that would transport me to another place, but had characters I could relate to. So, I’m so excited to have this opportunity to write books like that for other readers.
