Known for her roles on Netflix’s You, The CW’s Jane the Virgin, and Disney Channel’s Stuck in the Middle, as well as the upcoming fifth Scream movie, (premiering in 2021), Jenna Ortega shares her personal struggles and journey in It’s All Love. Combining spirituality and self-help, the book offers a moving and relatable take on challenges many teens face and offers guidance on how to learn to heal. For the first time, Jenna makes public her experiences with depression, family estrangements, love, the complicated nature of building a career in Hollywood as a POC, and more.
“As a generally private person with a very public career, and also a teenager living through this complex time, I’m constantly being asked about experiences I’ve had and how I navigated my mindset. Ortega said. “I didn’t really have an elementary answer, so I wrote a book instead. I think it’s critical to remember I am just a teen who is continually evolving and forming every day, and there’s so much I am unsure about. But that’s all right. For anybody else who is struggling with discovering themselves, I’ve written down some of my mistakes and a few of my life-altering experiences that made me perceive things differently in an attempt to make anybody else’s process slightly easier.”
Additionally, Jenna routinely partners with charitable organizations such as the National Bullying Prevention Center, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, and the Geena Davis Institute.
This collection of uplifting quotes and anecdotes for teens will be published by Random House Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, on January 5,2021.
