Publishing is 'a dream come true' for Revord, whose book is set for a fall 2025 publication date
Raegan Revord is has long been a big reader, and is now going to become an author herself.
The Young Sheldon actress, 16, announced Tuesday that she will publish her debut young adult novel, Rules for Fake Girlfriends. The book is slated for a fall 2025 publication date through Wednesday Books, an imprint of The St. Martin’s Publishing Group.
Rules for Fake Girlfriends follows Avery Blackwell who, after the death of her mother, attends her mom’s alma mater, Brighton College. While at Brighton, Avery meets Charlie, a girl who asks Avery to pretend to be her girlfriend, and who becomes her aid in finishing a scavenger hunt that Avery’s mother left behind.
“Wednesday Books is incredibly excited to be publishing Raegan’s wonderful debut novel,” says Eileen Rothschild, VP and associate publisher of Wednesday Books, in a statement. “From page one you are immersed in Avery’s journey as she navigates grief, first love and where she fits in the world. It is a ride you want to be a part of and we can’t wait for readers everywhere to experience it.”
Rules for Fake Girlfriends is perfect for fans of novels like Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and I Kissed Shara Wheeler by Casey McQuiston, and uses classic rom-com tropes in a fresh way, per the publisher.
“I’ve been a fan of Wednesday Books since I began reading YA, so to have my debut novel be published under Eileen’s expertise and guidance has been a dream come true,” Revord says.
The actress currently plays Missy Cooper on Young Sheldon, the CBS spinoff prequel of The Big Bang Theory, whose final season premieres this month. She is also an active member within the literary community and calls herself an “avid reader.”
In 2022, she launched her book club, Read with Raegan. The online community, which currently has over 55k followers on Instagram, is a space for young adults to discuss books, hear author interviews and connect with other readers.
