    The rise of the slashie (you know, those celebs who are DJs/models/actors/directors etc.) is officially going nowhere.

    We’ve seen models diving into the acting world, actors who’ve become directors or producers and DJs who can also add ‘fashion designer’ to their CV. There really seems to be no end to their talents and Cara Delevingne‘s latest announcement is further proof.

    Taking to Instagram this week, Cara Delevingne, who starred in Kids In Love last year, announced her entry into the literary world. And, girl, we’re not sure where you find the time but we applaud you anyway.

    Another pinch me moment!! Announcing my first novel Mirror, Mirror, coming out this October! SO EXCITED !!! Mirror, Mirror is a twisty coming-of-age story about sixteen year old friends Red, Leo, Naima and Rose who are all trying to figure out who they are and navigate the minefield of school and relationships.

    A post shared by Cara Delevingne (@caradelevingne) on

    Introducing the world to her debut book, Mirror, Mirror, the model describes her character’s teenage years as a journey of ‘self discovery, friendship, pain [and] triumph.’

    She’s describes writing as a ‘life-changing process’ and excitedly told her followers that the novel, which she’s co-written with author Rowan Coleman, will be out in October.

    And, if you want to know more, Amazon describes the storyline as: ‘Life isn’t perfect, but they’re united by their love of music and excited about what the future holds for their band. That is until Naima dies in tragic circumstances, leaving behind only one word. ‘Sorry’. What awful truth was she hiding? What dark secret was lurking behind her seemingly sunny persona? And how did Red, the self-styled protector of the group, fail to spot the warning signs?’

    Sounds suspenseful…
