Parents of tween girls can rejoice, for they will soon be able to buy their kids some novels written by none other than Tyra Banks.  Soon readers will be able to escape into the Tyra's fantasy world of Modelland - did you get that? Her imagination has no bounds, she took the word model and added the word land and came up with the wholly original name for her series (pronounced “Model Land”) .  And - wait for it - the series centers around "a girl trying to keep up with the beauty game at an elite school for supermodels, or Intoxibellas."  I'm not even going to begin to try to fathom "Intoxibellas", I think the stupidity of the word speaks for itself, but her website says "Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too."
That's right folks your kids will be able to learn the ins and outs of "the beauty game".  
All I can say is that if "elite" school wants to keep it real, I guess the students will be able to take classes such as Bulimia 101 and Narcissism for Beginners.

Wouldn't it be nice if someone asked actual readers of actual books what they thought of celebrity "authors"? Now only if the Intoxibellas could turn into zombies....
