Ready for the last drop? True, the third and final installment of Hilary Duff’s Elixir trilogy, doesn’t come out until Apr. 16 2013, but we have a super-early exclusive sneak peek at the cover and a sample chapter. Duff has always been one of the more enterprising former teen starlets, and her book series has earned a solid following of young adults who are enraptured by Clea and Ben’s travails. Check out the new pages of True and the full-sized cover art below. Enjoy!

Are you sad to see the end of the Elixir books? Did you consider them better than your average celebrity-helmed novels?
