It looks like art is imitating life for Lauren Conrad
The star of The Hills
reveals on her MySpace blog
that her new book, L.A. Candy
– which is "loosely inspired" by her own experience – follows the story of 19-year-old girl named Jane Roberts "who moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality television show." In the book Jane's best friend is named Scarlett.
The novel, the first in a three-book series
being published for young adults by HarperCollins, will be released June 16.
"Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life," writes Conrad, who has gone through a multitude of drama on the MTV series, "but it is in no way calling anyone out."
Adds the star, "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."
See Lauren and The Hills girls first thing in the morning!
