Fanlala REVIEWS Bella Thorne’s ‘Autumn Falls’

22049-1On top of her impressive resume including Shake It Up, Alexander and the Terrible…, and most recently The Duff, our pal Bella Thorne has found the time to pen a novel—and it’s finally out on the shelves.

Titled Autumn Falls after the main character, the book includes elements of magic as well as similarities to Disney Channel star’s personal life.

We caught up to Bella and asked about where she drew her inspiration.

“Autumn moves to Miami, I’m from Miami. She’s dyslexic, so am I. Her grandmother is crazy and rambles on in Spanish all the time—my grandmother is crazy and rambles on in English all the time. There are a lot of facts about me that I took to shape the character.”

Autumn is a sophomore who is dealing with a move to a new school in the middle of the year. On top of that, Autumn gets on the wrong side of the school’s queen bee when cute boy Sean takes interest in her. Just when everything is about to fall apart, Autumn is gifted with a journal that somehow grants her wishes.

The book is definitely a relatable read for anyone who has had or will have to deal with a new-girl status. The resident popular girl, Marina Tresca, finds plenty of ways to make Autumn’s life as turbulent as can be. However, Autumn’s strength in dealing with the harassment is admirable, to say the least. Autumn Falls is a page-turner, and will certainly keep fans hooked until the end. Tweens will love the witty and snappy dialogue between Autumn and her friends, we know we sure did!

You do not want to miss out on Autumn Falls, which is in stores now. Let us know in the comments below if you got your copy, or if it is on your Christmas list – we want to hear from you.
