Ashley Rickards Of 'Awkward.' Channels Wordsmith Jenna Hamilton And Inks Book Deal


These days, Jenna Hamilton's blog is for her eyes only, but Ashley Rickards, the actress behind the "Awkward" character, is ready to share her own musings with the world. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ash has inked a book deal with Harlequin -- famous for its steamy romance novels -- and will publish a collection of her personal essays that will act as a road map for teens, including the tale she got kicked out of the Girl Scouts? Maybe Jenna 2.0 is more grounded in reality than we thought....

The book, currently titled "Get Your Sh!T Together," will hit the shelves in spring of 2015 and cover everything from handling bullies to tips on fashion and staying healthy -- all through the lens of Ashley's own life. "[Ashley's] insight, empathy and guidance will help young women worldwide wade through any and all awkward phases and come out better on the other side," editor Rebecca Hunt said. And after three years inside the mind of Jenna Hamilton, we know she's the girl for the job!
