Modelland by Tyra Banks
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: September 13, 2011
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Pages: 576

Summary: 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. . . .

My Thoughts: Let me start off by saying, I'm not the biggest fan of Tyra. But, their is something about this summary that pulls me in. I love the whole idea behind a model boot camp. So, I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt and hopefully I'll find it enjoyable.

What are your thoughts on Modelland?

I can't wait for this book too! I hate the cover though.

Khadija said...

Not sure about this one. I've been very weary of all the 'celebrities' writing books lately. I might check it out but I'm really not sure...

I think this might be a guilty pleasure for me. I really don't like the cover, though!! Looking forward to seeing what you think, Eleni! :)

Tookie De La Crème? Intoxibellas? Thigh-High Boot Camp? I can't help but hearing Tyra's voice and see her smize at the same time when reading this blurb. Love her, love ANTM but not sure about the book though.

Yeah, this one sounds interesting but I'm not really sure. I think I'm going to pass on this one. But I do have to say that the cover is pretty cool. I relly like it ;).

Casey said...

This was my pick too. I'm actually curious about this for multiple reasons. Hopefully it will end up being enjoyable.
