America’s Next Top Model host Tyra Banks, is set to write a series of fantasy novels for young adults. MODELLAND, is the first novel in a three-book series written by the American Super Model, The New York Post reports.
The 3-part series is deeply rooted in Tyra’s core mission of expanding the definitions of beauty. In MODELLAND, a teen girl in a make-believe society, finds herself competing for a way of life that’s both hotly desired and woefully out of reach in an academy for Intoxibellas, the most exceptional models known to humankind. Readers will uncover lessons buried beneath the surface of this magical world, as the story unfolds.
“It’s for all the girls and guys who want a lot more FANTASY in their lives … and some fierceness and magic, romance and mystery, crazy and wild adventures, and yeah, some danger too,” Banks wrote on her website describing her new book.
Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books has aquired MODELLAND, the first novel in this series. The book is set to launch summer 2011.
