NY01691April 25, 2013 - Random House Children's Books has acquired 15-year-old actress, dancer, and singer Bella Thorne's teen book series, Autumn Falls, it was announced today by Beverly Horowitz, Vice President, Publisher of the Delacorte Press Young Readers Group. Executive Editor Wendy Loggia will edit the books. A teen star, Bella is best known for her lead role playing aspiring dancer "Cece Jones" on the hit Disney Channel original series Shake It Up, which is in its third season.

Autumn Falls is the story of a 14-year-old girl whose high school life unexpectedly changes after an encounter with magic. Delacorte Press will publish the first novel in the multiple book series in hardcover in the summer of 2014. Autumn Falls is Thorne's publishing debut, and she will co-write with Elise Allen. "I am very excited to be working with Random House and am so happy that Autumn Falls will have a home there," says Thorne. "This book, although mysterious and magical, is inspired by different aspects of my personal life, which I hold very near and dear to my heart. I wanted to write a book that teens could relate to, but with a little bit of magic. I am thrilled and hopeful that my audience will grow with me throughout the series." "We are so pleased that Bella will make her publishing debut with Random House Children's Books," says Horowitz. "Her authentic and passionate voice will captivate girl readers, who we know will relate to Bella and her characters." "Bella's got fantastic energy and is a true original—her fans are going to love seeing her creative and cool vision come to life in Autumn Falls," says Loggia.
