Is it bad?

So it seems that Ms. Hillary Duff has decided to try her hand at penning a novel. Why? I do not know. Maybe she's bored with all the singing and acting that she does, maybe this story was burning a hole in her mind and needed to get out. Who knows why Hillary Duff decided to write this book (and how much of it was actually written by her). But it looks good.

Clea Raymond has felt the glare of the spotlight her entire life. The daughter of a renowned surgeon and a prominent Washington DC politician, she has grown to be a talented photojournalist who takes refuge in a career that allows her to travel to the most exotic parts of the world. But after Clea’s father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, Clea’s photos begin to feature eerie, shadowy images of a strange and beautiful man—a man she has never seen before.
When fate brings Clea and this man together, she is stunned by the immediate and powerful connection she feels with him. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father’s disappearance, and they discover the centuries old truth behind their intense bond. Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fates, together they race against time to unravel their pasts in order to save their lives—and their futures.

So onto my point, is it bad that I kind of want to read this book? Not because Hillary Duff wrote it, and not because I am a little curious about her ability to write a novel geared for young adults, but because the story itself looks interesting. Although if I am going to be completely truthful I would like to know how the book itself reads and whether or not Hillary can pull it off. I haven't seen or read any interviews with Duff as to why she decided to write a book and how much help she had writing it. But I find it funny.

It's a beautiful cover, and the title of the novel 'Elixir' is kind of cool. So I am extremely curious and would very much like to read this book and know if Duff pulled through.
