Snooki To Release Fiction Novel Next Year

Like Conrad’s bestsellers, Snooki’s novel A Shore Thing will have echoes of the tanned star’s real life. Expected to be published early next year by Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books, it is a story of “a girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans and fights galore),” according to MTV.

Snooki hopes her words will help people’s appreciation of the Garden State reach new heights.
