Millie Bobby Brown may have just reportedly turned down $12 million to star in a Stranger Things spinoff, but she's got something else exciting up her sleeve.

The 19-year-old star took to Instagram with a reveal on Friday as she announced she was releasing her debut novel.

Millie had kept her project under wraps until now but was "thrilled" to finally deliver details of Nineteen Steps which is inspired by the real-life experiences of Millie's grandmother.
