Siblings David Hogg and Lauren Hogg, survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School deadly massacre in February, have landed a book deal with Random House, the publisher announced Wednesday.
The Parkland, Florida students, who've been the public face of the gun control movement in the aftermath of the mass murder, said they would be donating proceeds from the book to charity.
"Lauren and I will be using the money made from the book to help heal the community," David Hogg tweeted Wednesday.

The publisher said it also plans to make a donation to Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit organization founded in 2014, Time Magazine reported.
The siblings' book, "#NEVERAGAIN: A New Generation Draws the Line," is being described as “a statement of generational purpose, and a moving portrait of the birth of a new movement.”
“In times of struggle and tragedy, we can come together in love and compassion for each other,” David Hogg told Entertainment Weekly in a statement. “We can see each other not as political symbols, but as human beings. And then, of course, there will be times when we simply must fight for what is right.”
“It’s amazing to see that so much love can come from so much loss,” Lauren Hogg added. “But from our loss, our generation will create positive change.”
The book is scheduled to be published June 5.
David Hogg has continued to make headlines since pegging himself as the spokesman of the tragedy that took 17 lives.
He called for viewers to boycott Fox News host Laura Ingraham after she tweeted, “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it,” she wrote. “Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.”
But the teen's cry backfired.
"The Ingraham Angle" show's ratings spiked after she returned from a weeklong Easter vacation.
Ingraham's nightly ratings climbed to an average of nearly 2.7 million viewers, Newsbusters reported, since Hogg initiated the boycott on March 29.
