Back in print for the first time in years—and available in eBook for the first time—the New York Times bestselling tie-in to the hit television show and cult classic, Twin Peaks.

Laura Palmer was introduced to television audiences in the opening scenes of "Twin Peaks"--as a beautiful dead girl, wrapped in plastic. Now available in print for the first time in many years (and in e-book for the very first time!), THE SECRET DIARY OF LAURA PALMER chronicles Laura's life from age 12 to her death at 17, and is filled with secrets, character references, and even clues to the identity of her eventual killer.  Fans of the show will love seeing their favorite characters again, and Laura's diary makes compelling reading as she turns from a naive freshman having her first kiss to a "bad girl" experimenting with drugs, sex and the occult.
"As seen by" Jennifer Lynch, creator David Lynch's daughter, THE SECRET DIARY OF LAURA PALMER is authentic, creepy, and a perfect book for anyone who loves supernatural suspense.

I did not see the show, reading the book makes me want to find the show and watch it. The story sucks you in as you read this sad child's journey into despair and self-destruction. Then the ending leaves you hanging without knowing the details in her death. Read full review

About the author (2011)

Jennifer Lynch discovered the diary of Laura Palmer in 1989. While on the surface Laura led a perfect life as homecoming queen, successful high school student, and daddy's girl, her diary, reveals a sordid double life of cocaine, prostitution, and abuse. FBI investigators hope that this diary will be a useful clue to discovering her killer.
