Glee's Chris Colfer to release new book based on 'Struck By Lightning' film
Publishing company Little, Brown Books for Young Readers confirmed yesterday (August 9) that Glee's Chris Colfer is set to release a brand new novel this autumn.
The book in question will be based on his movie, called 'Struck by Lightning', and will be unveiled on November 20 in in print, ebook and audio formats.
Colfer explained that the publication is called 'Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal' and is more of an extension of the narrative he explored within the film, which he described as "a story about adolescence, told through the eyes of a teenager, for other teenagers."
In an official press release, the singer, writer and actor admitted that he wanted to further explore the characters he had created so wrote the book to bulk it out:
"When production wrapped, I wasn't ready to say good-bye to these characters and was thrilled when Little, Brown asked me to adapt the story into a novel. I felt the best way to tell Carson's story was through his critical eyes in a journal."
