Modelland—the exclusive, mysterious place on top of the mountain.

I am a massive fan of the Next Top Model franchise – each and everyone one is a gazelle-like train wreck in slow motion. I can’t look away.

I have just discovered that Tyra Banks, creator of the Next Top Model franchise has published a novel.

Here is a description from Tyra of the genesis of this fiercely awesome idea.

Maybe supermodels do have superpowers. So maybe I should do this book in fantasyland. In adventure. And have magic. Like these journalists used to joke about.

Thus exists Modelland with protaganist Tookie de la Creme who, it is said (by Tyra), is modelled on TYRA HERSELF. Tookie is very tall and very beautiful and has a massive forehead and feels super awkward.

She finds some kooky side kicks, a plus sized girl, a freckled mini girl and an albino!

But there are some violent dark secrets in Modelland, so they go from running on runways to running for their life.

I must read this book.

If you think you might like to read this book, I suggest you watch the story behind the story here. It will get you even more excited.

  1. I would be more than willing to host a book club for this novel. Or even get a group together who take turns reading a chapter aloud.

  2. I think our biggest challenge will be finding more than one copy of it at the library (if we find a copy at all). Also, regarding that behind the book video, I’m pretty sure that’s the first and only time Tyra has ever stepped foot into a library.
