Millie Bobby Brown set to release book

Stranger Things and Enola Holmes star Millie Bobby Brown is about to add another major accomplishment to her list—becoming a published author.

Apart from starring in the aforementioned television series and movie, the19-year-old already has an impressive résumé that includes a makeup line, her position as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and more. The actress will release her debut novel, Nineteen Steps, on September 12, 2023, through HarperCollins. 

Although the cover has not yet been revealed for the novel, the publisher reportedly offered a tantalising synopsis, which gives a taste of Brown’s new historical fiction.

“It’s 1942, and London remains under constant threat of enemy attack as the second world war rages on. In the Bethnal Green neighbourhood, Nellie Morris counts every day lucky that she emerges from the underground shelters unharmed, her loving family still surrounding her…But after a chance encounter with Ray, an American airman stationed nearby, Nellie becomes enchanted with the idea of a broader world,” HarperCollins writes. 

“’Nineteen Steps’ is a deeply affecting, mesmerising page-turner inspired by the author’s family history. An epic story of longing, loss, and secrets, Millie Bobby Brown’s propulsive debut introduces an unforgettable, brave young woman and boldly portrays the strength in the power of love.”

Brown also excitedly shared her big news to social media with a clip of herself making the announcement, which she captioned, “I’m thrilled to be announcing my debut novel, “Nineteen Step”…Writing “Nineteen Steps” has been a really special project for me. The story is inspired by true events and my own family history. I really hope you will find the true spirit of love and strength in Nineteen Steps, and I can’t wait to share it with you. It’s available to pre-order now.”
