What’s it *really* like to write a book?

Bailee Madison, whose debut novel, “Losing Brave” is officially out now, opened up about the process of brining her ideas to life on the page. The young adult mystery follows Payton Brave, a 17-year-old determined to solve the case of her twin sister’s disappearance. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that when it becomes a movie, Bailee gets cast as one of our favorite characters!

In a recent interview, she revealed that her vision for the novel drastically changed over the course of writing it. According to the 18-year-old actress, the book (which she co-wrote alongside Stefne Miller) started off completely different than how it ended up:

“At first we at this off-beat, witty, quirky, coming-of-age novel and then the conversation became ‘what have we not done?’…it was a psychological thriller. We got the consensus of “Girl On The Train” and “Gone Girl” but it hasn’t been done yet for this generation, in my age group, so to get to do a book that anyone in the family can read was such a joy.”

We’re not the only ones raving about Bailee’s new book! These celebs congratulated her in the sweetest way.
