Just in: Celeblogger Perez Hilton already moved into the world of music. Now, he’s getting into books.

Hilton is penning a children’s book titled The Boy With Pink Hair, celebrating individuality and self-acceptance. “This story is about every kid that’s ever had a dream, felt excluded, wanted to belong, and hoped that one day they could do what they loved and make a difference,” says Hilton in a release.

It will be published by Celebra Children’s Books, in partnership with Penguin Young Readers Group in September. First printing: 75,000 copies.
