The children’s book is a subtle nod to her growing up and encourages young girls to follow their dreams.

The Home and Away star’s book is targeted at girls eight and above and really hones in on life lessons surrounding family and friendship.

“It’s loosely based on my life growing up and what inspired me to become an actor,” she explained.

It includes everything that made her who she is today and even has the ‘crazy Greek culture’ throughout.

Penguin Books has released the blurb for the new book which gives a little more insight into the character.

“This will be easy. My life is pretty interesting and amazing.”

“I’m the only kid in my class who lives above a shop. And not just any shop – everyone knows Costa’s is the best place for fresh fruit and pastries and dips and bread.”

“We saw the play Leaving . . . and it’s all I can think about.”

“The lights, the heavy red velvet curtains, the music, but mostly the sad girl with tears streaming down her face as she waves goodbye to her best friend.”

“I want to be her. The girl in the play. I want to be up there on the stage with the lights and the curtains and the music.”

The story follows Mia starting a drama club with her friends at school and aspiring to be an actress, just like Ada.

You can pre-order Mia Megastar on Booktopia here! Ships on the 4th of June.
