Chris Colfer Book

Chris Colfer is a writing machine!

Oh, wait, wouldn't that be a laptop these days?

The Glee star recently wrote an independent film, which he also stars in, called Struck By Lightning.

And when most people would be done and go enjoy the fruits of their labor, Chris decided to continue the story with a supplementary novel!

The future YA bestseller Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal will follow the adventures of Chris's character from the film. Chris says:

"When production wrapped, I wasn’t ready to say good-bye to these characters and was thrilled when Little Brown [Books] asked me to adapt the story into a novel. I felt the best way to tell Carson’s story was through his critical eyes in a journal."

The story of a high school student who resorts to blackmail to help himself get into college has received good word of mouth since its debut in the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.

The Carson Phillips Journal will be available across all literary platforms November 20th.

Write on, boy!
