This is more than beginner's luck: Teenage blogger-actress Tavi Gevinson has a two-book deal for more highlights from her online magazine Rookie.

Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Random House, announced Tuesday that it will publish Rookie Yearbooks 3 and 4. Founded in 2011, Rookie is a publication for teenage girls that has featured contributions from Lorde, Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham.

The books for Rookie's first two years were released in 2012 and 2013 by the Canadian publisher Drawn and Quarterly.

The 17-year-old Gevinson attends high school in Oak Park, Ill. Her film credits include Cadavar and Enough Said.
