No One Can Change Your Life Except For You is out in March 2021.
Laura Whitmore has signed with Orion Spring to publish her debut book, No One Can Change Your Life Except For You, next year.
In the non-fiction book, the Bray native shares her experiences with heartbreak, body image, self-doubt and insecurities – with a release date in March 2021, to coincide with International Women's Day.
"When I was a kid the first album I owned was by Wilson Phillips," Laura says in a statement about the upcoming release. "I remember the lyric from the song 'Hold On': "No one can change your life except for you". It's how I've chosen to live my life. There is a freedom when you take back control. Stop waiting for someone to save you and do it yourself. I recognise everyone has different levels of struggle but no one just hands you a chance. We don't have to wait for Prince Charming to rescue us, or wait for the opportunity to come to us. We can be our own heroines. We can create our own dreams."
Over the years, Laura has risen to global stardom as a host on Love Island, I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now!, and MTV. She also recently wrote and starred in a short film, Sadhbh.
"Our whole team fell in love with Laura’s brilliant writing and empowering message," Publishing director Pippa Wright says in a statement. "Laura’s talent, her passion for making the world a better place and her heartfelt authenticity are the whole package, and we couldn’t be more excited to publish her debut."
