About the book:

Filled with personal elements from Bella’s own life, AUTUMN FALLS is the first book in Bella Thorne’s new series! It has everything readers will love and relate to: a real girl trying to find her own inner strength and be the best she can be, with a hint of magic and mystery, and a steady stream of OMG-I-can’t-believe-that-just-happened fun.

With her fiery red hair, new-girl outsider status, and tendency to be a total klutz, Autumn Falls definitely isn’t flying below the radar at Aventura High. Luckily, she makes some genuine friends who take her under their wing. But she also manages to get on the wrong side of the school’s queen bee, and then finds out the guy she’s started to like, funny and sweet Sean, hangs with the mean crowd. Now her rep and her potential love life are at stake.

When Autumn vents her feelings in a journal that belonged to her late father, suddenly her wildest wishes start coming true. Is it coincidence? Or can writing in the journal solve all her problems? And if the journal doesn’t work that way, is there a bigger purpose for it—and for her?
In Waterfall, Eureka has the chance to save the world. But she’ll have to give up everything—even love.

  1. Do you mean like actual magic or like little things through out the day like someone holding the door open, or a smile from a stranger?

  2. Hello,

    I am wondering if there is a limit to how many entries we can have. I also am a little confused as to what qualifies as realistic fantasy. I’m unsure if my first entry, The Inspired, falls within those parameters.

    Thanks!
    –Rachel Rauch

  3. Just wondering, does the story have to be about real magic? What magic are we talking about, your run of the mill magician or harry potter type stuff?

  4. I’m returning to Figment after years and this felt like an awesome way to start again so I’ve entered.
    Good luck everyone! 😀
