Hillary Duff’s new romance novel for young adults

New York : Actress and singer Hilary Duff has a new role these days - that of a romance novelist.

Duff is promoting her latest venture ‘Elixir’ at Borders Books & Music at Columbus Circle bookstore.

The ‘Lizzie McGuire’ actress, who recently appeared on ‘Gossip Girl’ has been out promoting the novel with a media tour, according to PerezHilton.com, reports a news daily.

The book, written with Elise Allen and aimed at young adults, focuses on a young photojournalist, Clea Raymond, who’s job takes her around the globe.

But after her father, a prominent surgeon, disappears during a humanitarian mission, Raymond’s photos start changing and begin to focus on images of a strange man she’s never encountered. The book weaves mystery, a dangerous love circle and a powerful secret into the plot, according to a website.

A review of the book on a website noted, “Think of it as ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ starring a much-more-grounded version of Serena van der Woodsen."

When asked if the book might ever be adapted to the big screen, the reviewer replied in affirmation, "Because a novel this good is just begging for a big-screen adaptation. After gulping up ‘Elixir,’ I’m ready for another dose."
