How My Private, Personal Journal Became a Bestseller by Julia DeVillers is a novel that inspired Disney Channel’s Read it and Weep starring Kay and Danielle Panabaker. If you haven’t read it or watched it, both are about how a girl’s journal accidentally gets published and becomes a bestseller. She gets swept up into high school teen drama and figures out who she really is and how telling the truth is always the best policy.
