A month ahead of the Sofia Coppola film, The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World, a nonfiction book about the celebrity-obsessed teenagers who made headlines when they were arrested for their habitual raids on Hollywood celebrities' homes, is out today (available in paperback, ebook, audio versions). 

Nancy Jo Sales, the writer behind the Vanity Fair piece you might have read, "The Suspects Wore Louboutins", expanded on her original reporting in just six months, after being approached by HarperCollins. 

With actors like Emma Watson, Leslie Mann and Gavin Rossdale, The Bling Ring is sure to have well-photographed red carpets and a well-attended premiere — meaning lots and lots of publicity. If you have any intention of eventually watching the film (and from what we've seen of the trailer, you should have lots of intention) you probably will see it. And so maybe you'll also want to read the book.
