With the release of her new book this month, Melissa Joan Hart adds "author" to her long Hollywood résumé, joining a number of former child stars who have penned memoirs about their early years in the spotlight. Meanwhile, the second book by Full House's Candace Cameron Bure comes out in January, and Boy Meets World's Danielle Fishel's memoir Normally, This Would Be Cause For Concern will come out in Fall 2014. These famous ladies' books offer a behind-the-scenes look at their time as teens on TV, but singers like Britney Spears, Nick Carter, and Miley Cyrus have also written books — with Miley's 2009 title released when she was just 16. It might be time for an update for that one.
Several actresses have also explored the world of publishing, including Drew Barrymore, Brooke Shields, and Jennifer Love Hewitt, who dishes out love advice in her witty memoir. For a dose of nostalgia this Fall, check out these must-read memoirs from former child stars in music, TV, and movies!
