You're already used to finding Maci Bookout on a TV screen, but are you ready for Maci Bookout, bestselling author? She wouldn't be the first Teen Mom star to chart with a book -- Farrah Abraham's My Teenage Dream Ended has been a major winner for MTV Press since its release in 2012. But what is a book about Maci going to tell us that we haven't already seen on television?
The Stir sat down to chat with Maci herself about her upcoming TV special Being Maci, and we asked for all the details on her book. She spilled!
On what she's been up to lately:
I've just been going to school and I had a few different things going on. I've been doing some radio shows in my local town. I had a podcast for about four months, and then I've been working a lot on my book.
I've been all over the place trying to figure out what direction I want to go in career-wise, trying different things out.
On what the book is about:
It's kind of a memoir, pretty much everything that everyone saw on 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom, but from my perspective and my full feelings and thoughts while everything was going on, rather than people seeing it from their TV screen and taking their own opinion and trying to figure out what I'm thinking. It kind of just tells the whole story so that they really understand what I was going through.

On how she's distinguishing her book from Farrah's:
It's a little bit different than hers. I'm a huge poetry freak, and I journal all the time, and I always have, so it's kind of taking all of my journal entries and poetry that I was writing while all of this was going on and turning it into a story.
It's going to be pretty awesome but I'm so nervous.
And now for the important question -- when are we going to get to read it:
Hopefully it will be out by the end of this year.
What are you hoping Maci will include in her book?
