Bella Thorne wrote book series as an inspiration to dyslexia sufferers

Actress Bella Thorne wrote her book series, Autumn Falls, as an inspiration to anyone suffering from learning disorder dyslexia.

The Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day star, who was diagnosed dyslexic as a young child, was approached to write a book about herself, but she was not keen on the idea. Instead, she came up with the book series about a teenage girl whose high school life changes after an encounter with magic.


"I never really thought of being a writer," she tells Live! with Kelly and Michael. "They came to me with this idea to write a book about me and I was like, 'No, that's so boring...' so I told them I would do something interesting that has to do with me, but not me.


"So I came up with Autumn Falls and I really wanted to write it because I'm dyslexic and if I can sign with one of the biggest publishing companies in the world, then you can really do whatever you want."
