Inspired by TV

So I was watching America's Next Top Model with my sister today. I knew that Tyra had written a book, but I had not heard too much about this book past a few people commenting on having read it. Well having heard Tyra talk about it on ANTM it sounds crazy! I think it could be my kind of crazy, but possibly it has passed crazy into insane!!

Well on the show the all-stars were filming the trailer for the book, so here it is.

Title: Modelland
Author: Tyra Banks
Published: 13th September 2011
Publisher: Random House Children's Books

No one gets in without being asked. And with her untamable hair, large forehead, and gawky body, Tookie De La Crème isn’t expecting an invitation. Modelland—the exclusive, mysterious place on top of the mountain—never dares to make an appearance in her dreams.

But someone has plans for Tookie. Before she can blink her mismatched eyes, Tookie finds herself in the very place every girl in the world obsesses about. And three unlikely girls have joined her.

Only seven extraordinary young women become Intoxibellas each year. Famous. Worshipped. Magical. What happens to those who don’t make it? Well, no one really speaks of that. Some things are better left unsaid.

Thrown into a world where she doesn’t seem to belong, Tookie glimpses a future that could be hers—if she survives the beastly Catwalk Corridor and terrifying Thigh-High Boot Camp. Or could it? Dark rumors like silken threads swirl around the question of why Tookie and her new friends were selected . . . and the shadows around Modelland hide sinister secrets.

Are you ready? Modelland is waiting for you. . . .  - From Goodreads
