Hayden Panettiere to Open Up About Addiction, Career and More in New Book

You may laugh a little, cry a little, but most importantly, you’ll hopefully finish it feeling inspired,” the actress tells PEOPLE of her upcoming release

Hayden Panettiere has a new book on the way.

The actress, 34, is set to give readers “an unprecedented glimpse into her storied life and acclaimed career” in a forthcoming memoir tentatively titled Scream and Break Free: Addiction, Trauma, and How the Cheerleader Saved Herself, PEOPLE can confirm.

The upcoming release will see Panettiere open up about her decades-long career, alcoholism and addiction, and more. “It’s both daunting and exciting to be able to share my story in book form,” Panettiere tells PEOPLE of the book, which is currently scheduled to be released by Grand Central Publishing in early 2026.

You may laugh a little, cry a little, but most importantly, you’ll hopefully finish it feeling inspired. I’ve grown so much from my experiences,” she continues. “I hope that this opportunity to further elaborate on that journey may provide a little comfort for those who have faced similar challenges. I’m truly grateful for every lesson, and for the woman I have become today.

The Heroes star’s upcoming book promises “to delve deep into the heart of her experiences as an actress, mother and human, ultimately inviting readers to share in the laughter, tears and poignant moments that shaped her into the woman she is today,” according to the book’s description. “With her signature blend of charm and authenticity, Panettiere invites fans and admirers alike to join her on this extraordinary voyage of self-discovery and revelation,” it adds.

Over the years, Panettiere has been open about her journey since skyrocketing to fame as a child actor in shows including One Life to Live, in which she starred as Sarah Roberts from 1994-1997.
