Model, actress, eyebrow icon and… author? Cara Delivingne proves it’s possible to do it all.

’s spunkiest sweetheart announced via Instagram that she has written her first novel, entitled Mirror, Mirror.

“Another pinch me moment!!” Delevingne wrote to her 38.1 million followers. According to her IG caption, Mirror, Mirror follows a group of three 16-year-old friends who “navigate the minefield” of high-school, friendships and relationships. You know, just your typical coming-of-age young adult literature type stuff.

“I love these characters so much, I love what they stand for, what this story represents,” the 24-year-old model said of the “life-changing process.”

Although Delevingne petitions that we should all “start one big virtual book club,” clearly she hasn’t heard that there’s already a well-established squad of celebs who have written novels for a teen audience. While we wait on Delevigne’s debut novel—out in October and available for pre-order now—here’s a roundup of YA books penned by the prettiest faces in Hollywood. They may not be Pulitzer prize winners, but they’ll make for a juicy beachside read.


Rebels: City of Indra by Kylie and Kendall Jenner

A sci-fi novel about the haves and have-nots of a dystopian society. The main characters are sisters, and they have superpowers.

L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad

A *fictional* series of novels about a 19-year-old girl who moves to Los Angeles, lands an internship and is cast on a reality TV show. Hmm…sounds familiar.

Modelland by Tyra Banks

Tookie De La Crème (seriously, that’s the protagonist’s name) attends a prestigious modelling academy. She makes friends, finds truth and seeks out a mysterious impostor.

The Truth About Diamonds by Nicole Richie

A story about the adopted daughter of a big name rocker who is betrayed by her socialite bff. Again, this is a totally fictional story and is not based on real life at all.

Swan by Naomi Campbell

A story about a supermodel. Plot twist: she hates the job and wants to retire.

The Elixir Trilogy by Hilary Duff

A three-book romance/mystery series about a beautiful, young, world travelling photojournalist. Oh, and there are ghosts and stuff.
